This wonderfully thorough hatha yoga flow digs deep into the tension in the hips, legs and back, moving you through a gradual build-up to more challenging poses as the class progresses. Melissa maintains a calm energy, gentle pacing and difficulty level that is accessible to most students, although this would be considered as a more challenging beginner class.


Balance, looser hips and other inspiration

Dear Melissa,
Like the previous comment I echo the “love your classes” to the power of 10!
Thanks to your gentle, kind and authentic pace yours is exactly what I need(ed) in learning about this relatively “new world of yoga”. Incidentally, your “fear-free” approach (“this will come with time”) to teaching has even inspired me in my own work as a college lecturer in foreign languages.
And one more thing, I now feel comfortable and ready to “click” intermediate!
Thanks for being here!

Love, love, love

Ps: I'm 10 weeks pregnant and wondering if you teach any pregnancy classes online?

Prenatal yoga

Hi Kim!

Thanks so much :)

No, I don't teach any prenatal yoga at all. If you want to keep working with my classes I would suggest the avoiding deep twisting poses and if any poses start to feel "wrong" skip them. And definitely check out some of the great prenatal classes on this site. You may also check out my class Yoga For Inner Strength which will teach about your pelvic floor and how to engage it. Although I don't do any prenatal I know a lot about pelvic floor and you definitely want to learn more about that now.

All the best! xo

I've been having a lot of hip and low-back tightness and pain and this class gave me a LOT more movement back. I'll definitely be doing this one again. Thank you!

Perfect amount of direction and silence!

Really appreciated the allowance of silence during instruction. Gives me an opportunity to focus all my attention inward without having to listen to the teacher. Love the out of doors and the sound of birds, train, boats etc.

The more I teach the less I try to fill the space with chatter. Glad you enjoyed it! Silence is golden.
