I was in need of neck and back relaxation today and this class hit the spot. It was the perfect length before heading off to work at a desk all day. Thank you!

Was missing a Melissa class and am so happy to do this this morning. I am limited on time this am and this practice was perfect. As always, I appreciate your wonderful instruction. You nailed it when on my side, I was totally in flexion and needed to adjust. Thank you for sharing your wisdom.

I feel completely different

I feel completely different to at the start and at the end. I feel more algned and my spine does feel lengthened. The only issue is how shocking my balance is - I felt my ankles working to help me stay up. Nonetheless, I am enjoying the balanced feelings in my body and in my mind. Thank you! :)

Thank you!!!
