“I wanted to send a note to say thank you so much for all your yoga guidance during my pregnancy. I very much enjoyed the class each week and believe it helped me relax and prepare for labour and delivery. Our little girl was born on her due date. Happy, healthy and adorable.”

“Thanks for everything Melissa, you helped get my body and mind ready for this! I was very calm and breathing and visualization really helped.”

“My weekly prenatal yoga classes with Melissa helped me so much to relax and to get my body prepared for the big day. During labour my daughter came into distress at some point. I was able to relax my mind and body with techniques that Melissa taught me – and it worked! I delivered the most beautiful girl calmly and it was the most amazing experience. I’d recommend prenatal yoga to all women.”

“Melissa was extremely helping in my emotional, physical and overall well-being. She was there from the beginning to the end providing any support we needed. We are so thankful for her!”

“Melissa is amazing! The class is challenging and very inclusive.”

“Melissa is an amazing instructor. I feel confidant and safe in her classes so I can let go and focus on my practice.”

“Beautiful and clean studio, friendly service and relaxing atmosphere makes Padma yoga a great place to practice. Convenient location with free parking at the back.”
