Amazing! Melanie's class reached every muscle in the back and left me with no back aches for days after just doing this video once! Amazing!

This is such a wonderfully structured and taught practice. The early backbends and twists are excellent preparation for the peak poses. I felt focused and engaged throughout the whole workout. Easy to modify up or down as well.

It is the first class I took at yogaworks and I'm impressed by how easy it is to follow without looking at the screen. I feel great afterwards, thank you!

amazing descriptions, I could get into the poses without even having to look at the screen, also very nice transitions, great to have the slower pace and feel through the poses..very regenerating...

This sequence is clever and uses a backbend that more people can do as the peak pose. It is a kind of complicated path to get there, but worth it.

Ive dearly missed Melanies class since moving to the east coast, so Im thrilled to have these online practices through which I can again experience her warm voice, her sensible explanations, and her gentle-yet-confident mien. Her slow pacing and in-depth alignment instruction make these classes beginner-friendly, but I have to say, I always find such long holds to be a good challenge.

What a difference from the first twist to the last! Thanks, Melanie, for helping me loosen up and feel better today!
