“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.” -Paulo Coelho
"Thank you Melissa for your life-affirming, grounding yoga goodness during the two week holiday at Ulpotha. Your creative structure of your classes with the compassionate focus on strength, body awareness and mindfulness has completely transformed my practice! I now realise my truth that yoga for me is an inside-out practice. The more I give back to my body by being present with her, the more the external changes.
You have inspired me in so many ways .. I love the daily devotions you shared, loved the restorative classes and found so much JOY in the acro yoga!
You held the group with such integrity, which amplified the camaraderie and created a beautiful, harmonious energy of deep connection.
My practice has changed forever. I am booking two years in advance to ensure I'll be at your next yoga holiday in Sri Lanka.
SO much gratitude and love for you!!!
