Melissa's emphasis on core strength helps keep you safe, while challenging your body to stay strong. Melissa incorporates a beautiful yoga flow that stretches the body as your strength builds. An amazing class that is delivered with such ease and grace.


From heavy to light

I felt so uplifted by this smooth flowing Hatha class. The transitions were perfect for my energy level today..which was very low. I told myself I wasn't going to eat dinner until I did a yoga class. A lot of dense emotions and physical sensations were released. Thank you Melissa for your grace and ease that you convey.

Success with side plank (well at least one side completely :))

Love this class and all your classes Melissa. The little tweaks you mention make such a difference in creating space. I especially noticed it with supported triangle, engaging my core and pulling in ribs brough my torso up higher and longer, fantastic!

Awesome class, it really

This class was exactly what I needed today - it helped me to be aware of my low back and hips while building core strength...and reminded me to be gentle with myself while working with injury and tightness. I've been having difficulty coming back to my own yoga practice lately and getting on my mat at all.... Melissa's instruction helped me to reconnect with my breath and my body again this afternoon for the first time in a while. Feeling like I'm coming home into my yoga practice again. Thank you thank you thank you!

Melissa is one of my favorite

Melissa is one of my favorite instructors, and this practice was exactly what I have been wanting. I'm working my way through the beginner challenge because, well, because I'm a beginner, and I have to remind myself regularly to be patient with letting my practice build so that I am truly ready for more advanced flows. Today's yoga let me feel a bit of reward for that patience because I was challenged and am walking away feeling fantastic. Thank you!

Great for going deeper

Really enjoyed Melissa's comforting and encouraging style. I was able to go deeper and create some much needed space in a few neglected areas. Will definitely return to this class and more led by Melissa.

Love love love this class.

My Favorite Class. My Favorite Teacher!

Melissa's guidance is so well articulated I can take my glasses off and just listen to her directions and rarely have to visually check what she is added bonus to my practice to not have glasses interfering. I would love a few more intermediate level hour long classes from Melissa and then my glasses free practices could expand!

Excellent class to find serenity
Pierre-Luc Emond 12 months ago

I have been practising mostly intermediary and advanced classes for a few years. I just discovered this class labelled "beginner" and I really enjoyed the slower pace and opportunity to remain deeper and longer in key postures. It was particularly hard these past days to find motivation for yoga - as I felt very anxious and had low energy! - but I'm very grateful for this class and it made me feel much more serene and comfortable in my own skin. I will certainly integrate this class in my yoga routine. Thank you, thank you!
