"This training has been such a wonderful experience! Everyone who came along this journey each brought their own amazing spirit, love, and care. I loved learning so much information about the chakras, yoga for anxiety, yoga for depression, prenatal yoga and most importantly self care. Thank you Melissa! This training has transformed my life for the best." Tracy, 300 Hour Graduate
