Good teacher also with calm voice, easy to follow. Will do again! Thank you!

It was a nice beginner class, with just enough challenge to start strengthening my upper body.

Her voice is so calming and the instructions were esy to follow. I'm also thrilled that I have found a shoulder program that's not to hard. Finally! this will definitely be a part of my routine.

A quick way to start the day off strong! Thanks, Melissa!

Another great video from Melissa. Her grace and gentle guidance are such a pleasure! I always end her videos feeling relaxed and centered. Thank you!

Really like this one and like all of your classes. You have a great voice and I can easily visualize what my body is doing relative to your descriptions.

Loved this class!

I'm just getting back into yoga after a 6 month break and really need to build some upper-body strength before attempting higher level asanas. This routine feels perfect, thank you!

I loved it! Easy for me to follow along as a beginner. I feel great.:)

Thanks so much Melissa for your great gentle nurturing classes. I have been doing all of them regularly now and love your style.
Best, Nina

I found this video to be perfect for me. I have bulky muscle that needs to be trained to do the nice long stretches/ poses. I have strength, but not trained for holding poses... yet. :) You made it very easy for me to transition into each new step while I'm learning the names of the poses and how to get into them. I have used commercial videos, but could never find one that worked for me and my style.

Thank you for posting the video online! I'm on a small island with limited yoga classes (only on sundays at night). It is very gracious of you.
