  1. Thank you, this class is fantastic. I love how you filmed it outdoors, and the birds make a terrific addition.

  2. Thank you so much Shelley !
    I just discovered these wunderfull videos. You encourag me to go on learning to practice Yoga although I'm a aged Person. The best I can do in pandemic times. You are great !

  3. I LOVE Shelley. Shelley 's classes have given me the ones I've been looking for. With my gym closed due to covid, Shelley has been my instructor.

  4. These videos are great. However, I cannot hear you at the beginning of this video. I am standing up and have a video on the floor so that it is there where I need it when I get down on the floor, I have the air conditioner running. I have my hearing aids turned up all the way, and I cannot understand anything except a soft mumble. It could be just an issue with my computer, but I really do wish I could hear you. Thank you so much for doing these videos they are incredibly helpful.

  5. Thank you so much Shelley. I started to follow this programme during lockdown and worried it might be a bit late for me (I’m 70) but it’s great. I’m not the fittest person but I no longer wake with stiffness in my back and aches and pains. I’m sure it’s due to the gentle exercises and stretching. So glad I started even at my advanced age !

  6. HI Thank you for this session made a long time ago now! A bit of feedback the music conflicted with yr voice. Also I found your vocing breath in and breath out was 3 x faster than my own breath and I was uncomfortable with this . I did a t one poin t try breathing with you but found I simply could not access the depth of breatrh which is critical to yoga. But thank you, your intentions are lovely*x

  7. I really enjoy the Mat Project Yoga instructor, Shelly. There are so many others here that feel the same way. I really hope to see more of your videos as they really help me in my new journey to yoga.

  8. Thanks, your gentle yoga video volume 2, it was great. If I may add, the background music was very loud! Would you be able to control that so we can follow your instruction better.

  9. Enjoyable but terrible sound quality. I appreciate being reminded to breathe in and out as it is easy to forget to let the breath flow.

  10. These classes are exactly what I’ve been looking for. They’re just what I need for where my practice is at this season of my life. In this particular video, I found the music overpowered your voice and I had a hard time hearing your instruction, although I really like the style of a separate narration. Thank you.

  11. Hello. You seem to have mostly positive comments however I must concur with the ones who speak about the "noise." It is very distracting and some of us may have difficulty hearing and it's a bit of a nuisance trying to listen carefully to you while also attempting to see you as best we can to do the poses as best we can. Also you go a bit too fast please slow it down for about 5 more seconds as some of us aren't as flexible and smooth and easy about moving from one pose to another. It would be nice if you would be so kind to remake it with better sound but I won't hold my breath as I see you (or your people) don't respond much at all to the comments . Thank you for sharing all the same. ✌🏼🧘🏽‍♀️

  12. I'm hoping there will be a Gentle volume 4. I love alternating the 3 different classes. Thank you for giving me a strong healthy body at 69 years old.

  13. I love your work Shelly. Please do more gentle yoga videos, they are a life saver. PS. The music in this one drowns out your voice somewhat. Just so you know.

  14. I have done your volume 1 video. Will definitely do this. It is sad to see you haven't done anymore videos. Lot of videos, even though it says for beginners it definitely is not. I can finally do a yoga video without a lot of difficulty. Wish you would do more.

  15. Love this video and all 3 volumes, i am 76 and can master them all, but have a problem with the sound on vol. 2. Thanks a mil for a wonderful session

  16. Lovely class and perfect for the older person, but, unfortunately many of us are hard of hearing and the music is too loud to hear the instructions clearly. I look forward to the next class.

  17. It's a real nice feeling, pratising every morning the Mat Project Vol. 2, knowing that, we are several hundreds all over the World to come to the class ! 🙂 … Such a wide room, we would need to gather !

  18. I loved Volume 1…but, doing Vol 2 is difficult because the voice track is so hard to hear over the awful spooky ambient noise. I wish it just had Shelley Nicole's lovely warm soothing voice and none of the "spiritual massage" muzak.
