I feel so fortunate to have found Melodie! I am disabled, have limitations in my limbs and severe
weakness in my legs but she has helped me regain strength, balance and range of motion by adapting the poses to meet my unique
needs. She has infused my life with hope, allowing me to live a happier and healthier life! On top of all that, she is a patient,
kind-hearted and inspiring yoga instructor! Thank you, Melodie!
As a beginner in Yoga, I began with private sessions with Melodie. Melodie is a wonderful
instructor who helped me learn the basics in Yoga in a very patient and non-judgmental way. She is able to modify poses to
the level that you are currently at and be able to encourage you to more advanced poses as you progress. Since beginning Yoga
with Melodie I have increased flexibility, balance and core strength. I would highly recommend private sessions with Melodie
whether you are a beginner or an experienced yoga practitioner.
I enjoy the class because yoga has helped me to relax, be more flexible, not only physically but psychologically.
Both energy and relaxation are mixed, which I need a lot of both! I also get a lot out of the weekly class to practice at
home when I need to relax, or if I have a problem like back ache, or stress, and also helps me to deal with the allergies (breathing
exercises are vital here.) I had a minor issue for years with my right shoulder, which gave me
some problems when I slept, and, yoga class has helped me a lot, because now I can move it all the way, with
no pain and I can sleep better, it doesn't bother me lately, and I mean for almost 6 months.
Since yoga makes you do movements that are natural
but not practiced in our modern hectic life, it feels different than anything else in the day, and it just gives me a healing
effect. Melodie is very easy going and a good yoga teacher. She is professional and listens to us when we have a special request
or issue , gives a lot of advice for specific problems, and the way she develops the yoga class during an hour and
15 minutes is just perfect for what I need. I also get a very good example from her healthy lifestyle, which
makes me feel comfortable in yoga class, and she has become one of my favorite neighbors. Yoga has changed my life, and it
is beyond some workout... it is about the body, mind and spirit, the whole package for a healthier life. I love it, and
invite everyone to try it, and live it! It is an experience that you can't get in the gym...

I have been taking yoga classes from Melodie
for almost two years now, and there are so many good things that have resulted from this that I'm not sure I can name them
all! My lifestyle has changed. I know what to do when I feel tired, overexcited, or ill (which is a rarity now). The several
chronic injuries I began with are hardly noticeable since I started the yoga classes. I love the fact that I can actually
improve physically with age! I didn't think that was possible at age 50. ~ Rebecca Maze
Melodie Phillips is my favorite yoga teacher. Ok, she’s also my wife, so I may be
a little prejudiced, but I can vouch for the fact that Melodie is passionate about yoga and that she cares deeply for her
yoga students. She gives a lot of thought and time to planning her yoga classes. And she has found freedom from
back pain in large part due to her own yoga practice. I would recommend her yoga classes to anyone wanting to get healthy
and have fun doing it!
Thank you to my wonderful yoga students! You teach me something new in every yoga
class. Watching your progress brings me great happiness & satisfaction. Thanks for sticking with me and
making Yoga by Melodie possible.
