Hi Melissa, hi everyone, I am practicing your yoga classes since a month, regularly everyday, I am very really happy because of the softness of your classes. I am suffering from back pain due to a herniated disc. It feels far more better since I do your classes. I am thanking you for the ease and softness through which you are teaching your classes and the good feeling that it gives:)

Melissa's teaching style is so easy to follow. Her words are intentional, providing clear direction with brevity. I can often follow along from audio alone, allowing me to focus on my body's cues. I seem to arrive at each pose with ease and I can feel my body releasing tension along the way. By far, one of my favorite yoga instructors.
