Your yoga videos are my favourite companions when doing yoga at home! Your voice is so calming and you explain everything at a pace that is perfect for me. You remind me of a yoga teacher I had in another city who was like a sun (in the best of ways). Thank you!

I really love the routines that use the whole body and not just certain areas, so this was perfect for me! Your voice is very calming and your instruction is easy to follow without looking up. :) Thank you for sharing!

Thank you for a lovely class. I have been getting a little too comfortable with a few classes I do regularly because they are easy for me now. I turned to this one to break out of my comfort zone and it was terrific - challenging while gentle, which is what I need. Thank you!

Wonderful class! I loved the detailed instructions and the range of poses (not just sun salutations-yay!). I have been practicing for 15 years and always had pretty good balance, but this class taught me to use the core for better balance. I can't believe how much having a focus on the core helps for every pose! I liked how at the start of the class she brought attention to any tension and our emotions/mood.

My favorite part of Melissa's instruction is how she always directed one to move out of a pose when one is ready. I never heard that before. It certainly makes a positive difference in the flow and also brings greater awareness to the body.

I just joined Do Yoga With Me, and this is my favorite class so far! You target the whole body, and I don't focus on when the class will be over. I am in my "flow."

Thank you so much!

Thank you Melissa for another wonderful class. This one has quickly become my favourite! It has it all, relaxation, breathing, connecting, pelvic floor, strength, effort, it's great. Looking forward to your next one! Sharon

I just completed this class and it was my first time ever attempting yoga. I learned a lot about the basics of breathing, some basic poses, stretches, and methods of strengthening and balancing my body. I will definitely do this one again! Thanks!
