Smiling, she said, “I will help you, grab a mat, relax.” I was hooked.
I wanted to cry, she was going to help me with all my faults and foibles without a second thought.
She is the best yoga teacher; compassionate without fawning,
Firm yet gentle, vocal yet quiet, not intrusive yet caring.
I totally recommend her first for her knowledge of yoga and second for her management skills."
"I have been regularly attending Melissa's yoga class for about a year. The thought of beginning the practice of yoga was intimidating to me: I was in my late 50's, overweight, and going it alone. Melissa immediately put me at ease. Because of her extensive training as a Yoga Therapist, she has the knowledge and ability to translate the practice of yoga to the individual physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of her students. She is wonderful at adapting any pose based on your specific limitations, such as arthritis, limited flexibility, or fear. She also helps you to see the connections between the approach you make in class and your approach to how you live your life.
I am so grateful I found her."
