Evan as an intermediate 3 practicer, I love once in a while doing a Hatha class to calm and soothe, realign and balance myself, especially when it is 95 degree + outside! Energy gets a revitalization with Melissa's classes! Thank you!

Very nice class. Just the moves I need at a nice pace and a pleasant voice. The right tips and reminders at the right moment. I use it over and over again.

Thank You Mellissa. This was just what my back needed. This class features clear, concise instructions that lead fearlessly into each pose. I love it when I am led into standing poses with no hesitation or time to doubt myself. No balance problems today!
I feel great :)

That was lovely. Melissa is a great instructor and I don't have to move my head to see what's happening because she explains each step so well. Thank you!

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.
