What our clients are saying

Emily Rose Bryan
Glow Reflexology
This class is awesome: sweat-inducing, fun and relaxing all at once. It works really well online too. (and it doesn't matter if you have little ones running around in the background). Can't wait to get back to it next week!
Jennier Moss
Bikram yoga studio owner, Norwich
I have known Melissa Whitty for approximately one year. She was my first teacher to help me when I opened my Bikram Yoga Studio. Melissa is dedicated, energetic, positive and conscientious in whatever she undertakes to do. She was very helpful and supportive during my first few months of being open. She follows through on everything she sets her mind to, and I would not hesitate to recommend her for any project or teaching position.

Entrepreneur and yogi, Glasgow
Mel is a great yoga teacher and a great person. Full of personality and really gets you out of your comfort zone and lots of progress in your practice. I always come out of the class feeling better.
Nancy Henriksen yoga teacher

Melissa is one of the most dynamic personalities you will ever encounter. Taking one of her classes will leave you energized from her upbeat inspiration. I’ve always had a thing for the Irish and her accent keeps you going in class when a part of you wants to give up. Count yourself lucky if you stumble upon one of her retreats, as she knows how to organize a spectacular experience. I’m tickled pink to have partnered with her on these endeavours!
Geraldine O Connell
Horsham, UK.
I highly recommend Melissa. I was desperate to get back into exercise after having my second child, I wanted to build strength and flexibility and Melissa’s classes were perfect for me. She is a fantastic yoga instructor, she instantly made me feel at ease at my first class. I improved week on week. She has a great sense of humour which meant her classes were really good fun to attend as well as providing an all-over body workout.

Melissa is a fantastic yoga instructor, always full of energy and warmth. I was a complete beginner but she offered each of us in the mixed ability group personalised guidance and always made us feel supported.
