"Honestly, I'm not a morning person but I can't imagine starting my day any other way. I feel so great when I leave every morning and despite having taken countless yoga classes all over the world, I find Melissa's Savasana's to be one of the best I've had!"
- Angel B.
"Melissa is AMAZING!!!... I have a long history of back issues, and practicing yoga with Melissa has become my favorite/most effective form of "physical therapy" I've ever done. I have done yoga on and off for most of my life, but when I came to The Sweet Life, I'd been in a very long OFF period, due to an injury...Melissa has changed my life! My balance and strength are off the charts now, I'm doing poses I never imagined I'd be able to do, and I feel like a million bucks every time I leave a session! It's hands down my favorite part of every week."
- Katie J.
"Melissa is by far the best yoga instructor I have ever had! She challenges and nurtures me at the same time--and reminds me how important it is to continue to nurture myself between sessions too. I have been seeing her for private lessons for about a year and it has literally changed my life! I always said that "yoga just wasn't my thing" but she has transformed me and my daily practice so much that I can't stop talking about it. "
- Kristin U.
"I have been doing yoga for 30 years. As I travel a lot I frequently take classes in different cities, usually private teachers. I was lucky enough to find Melissa online when I came to Atlanta. She is the rarest of all things- an actually gifted teacher. Melissa is funny, intuitive and very serious about her work. She is very quick at assessing the needs, energy, ambitions, laziness of a student and adjusting her class accordingly. She is a full service healer."
- Doug W.
" I've practiced yoga at many different studios over the past ten or so years, and Melissa is one of the best teachers I've taken a class with. She's extremely knowledgeable not only about the physical practice of yoga, but she has a passion for the spiritual practice at the root of yoga, which is great if you're interested in incorporating that into your own practice. She is open to personalizing poses to your abilities, and pushing your limits when you want to try something new. "
- Jada W.
"...melissa is passionate about teaching, passionate about yoga, and passionate about music, and she gets to combine all of these things into her classes."
- Bonnie H.
"I feel that Melissa's background as a life coach brings a sense of warmth, humor and comfort - helping me feel more at ease with my practice. I love her workshops because they are informative and motivating; I miss them so much between sessions. Another perk: she'll massage your temples and neck with neroli oil and you'll leave smelling like a dream!"
- Nikki S.
"...the most unexpected and welcome side effect from my practice has been the drastic improvement to my golf swing. I never thought that my time on the mat would help so much on the fairway..."
- Max F.
"I highly recommend Melissa for cynical types like me because there isn't the pressure to chant and be too spiritual if you don't want to be. That element is there but there is a good balance of playfulness and seriousness to get a good workout while having a good time."
- David L.
"This is not your typical yoga class. She gives such great individualized attention to the class members. I leave her classes feeling energized, mindful, and nurtured. She is a beautiful person and has such a wonderful style that is fun, compassionate, and empowering. I have been to several other classes in the past and this one is by far my favorite."
- Jennifer D.
"Melissa is one of a kind! She has a wicked laugh that puts you at ease immediately and you can feel the LOVE the minute you step in the studio. She is easy going and makes each yoga class unique. One of my favorite things about her classes is that she always has some interesting knowledge to share. "Knowledge" mostly about yoga, but often times about our thoughts & emotions, books, music, and life in general. I tend to walk away with my own heart and mind excited for the next class. If you are into "nuggets of wisdom" on all levels, this is the place for you! Do yourself a favor and Go!"
