Little did I know. I have been an athlete and an endurance athlete for most of my life but I needed a change. My first question was if this was just for women; little did I know. Melissa taught me how to focus on my mental state, focus on nutrition and introduced me to kundalini yoga. She took the time to teach, coach, lead me and answer all of my off-the-wall questions. I found that my overall mental state improved, my posture improved, my strength and flexibility increased. In fact, I lost 20 pounds in the process. Again, little did I know how awesome it would be having Melissa guide me in my journey!

It is a joy to be around Melissa. She is truly a shining light in the world. She is committed to her own personal journey and is able to hold space for deep connection and healing. Her training is exceptional and she lives what she teaches!
I've had to pleasure to attend Melissa's inspiring physical and virtual Kundalini yoga practices for almost a year. Her thoughtfully curated yoga practices are cultivated with such care, they consequently truly empower us to deepen our own practice and thrive. I continue to show up again and again, looking forward to Melissa's insight and transforming into a better person with her support and guidance.
I have been introduced to Kundalini Yoga earlier this year through Melissa's classes and it's been such an uplifting experience. It's a spiritual practice that focuses on the breath and challenging the body, ending with chanting and meditation, and a chance to connect with other women. I come out feeling rejuvenated, healed, and in peace with myself and my circumstances. Highly recommend for those seeking a deeper connection with yoga practice and an opportunity for authentic connections with uplifting women.
Working with Melissa as a prenatal yoga coach gave me a sense of control over my body and my pregnancy as well as a sense of well-being knowing that I was setting the groundwork for a healthy baby and a happy delivery- which was later the case! Our partner yoga sessions in our home strengthened my bond with my husband preparing us to become co-caregivers by renewing the foundation of our love for each other through physical and emotional exercises. The worksheets and exercise routines I practiced with Melissa made the movements, sounds and process of giving birth more banal and commonplace so that both myself and my husband felt natural in this new experience and our new roles. My husband definitely attributes my ability to go through childbirth with strength and calm - as he would say, “like a rockstar” and to follow our birthing plan to minimize medical interventions. Take control of this beautiful moment in your life and do yourself, your partner and your baby a huge favor by employing Melissa’s services!
Melissa is a wealth of knowledge on all things health, wellness, fitness, pregnancy and birth related. I am impressed by how she draws from so many different modalities to offer suggestions that ended up making all the difference for me. I now have so more energy and vitality to get through each day, which is invaluable to me! Her excitement for her work is infectious! it has both inspired and motivated me in many areas of my life, including my purpose and business. Melissa is passionate about helping mothers prepare for birth with all the tools they will need for a successful home birth. She loves educating women about their bodies, what to expect and empowering them to be the one in control of their care decisions. When I become pregnant, I want Mellissa to be be my doula! I recommend her to my closest friends, knowing they are in the very best hands.
I am so blessed to have met Melissa at a Kundalini Yoga class in Monterey, California. Melissa embodies the rare combination of a truly gentle spirit with a powerful, warrier-like soul. She genuinely cares for all those around her. She creates a space for women to gather to share the healing energy of Kundalini yoga as well as a safe circle to connect with each other. Even as Melissa has relocated to Oregon, she continues to provide virtual New Moon and Full Moon workshops that are attended by people Melissa has influenced from every place she has been! Her workshops include breath work, targeted kriyas, sound healing and guided meditations. In each Kundalini workshop I always know I am going to learn new information from Melissa about how specific movements, breath and sound can boost my vitality and support my own journey of physical, mental and spiritual health.
