Testimonials

This Phoenix Rising course was a healing gift to myself. A unique way to look inside myself, and hear my inner truth, in a way that no other yoga class, or any other class has done. Simple and easy, the truth emerges with minimal effort.

Going through Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy was a real inward journey for me. I have come out of this group with a lot more self-awareness, and tools to help me in daily life. I will be forever grateful for this journey and experience and I would recommend it to anyone I know. Much love and gratitude to you Melissa.

The Reconnecting to Wisdom program is a beautiful and gentle way to explore exactly where you are in life. With each week and theme is an opportunity for internal connection with the body, mind and spirit. Very informative with practical “tools” for moving in daily life. This is not a “woo woo” program!
— Lori Edwards

Reconnecting to Wisdom was an amazing journey of self-discovery. Not only did it bring many insights but also clear and concrete actions. I left this 8-week program feeling more connected to myself, to my truth, and to staying in conscious, compassionate flow in my life. THANKS Melissa for so thoughtfully designing and facilitating this powerful program!

Practising yoga at Yoga by the Sea needs to be experienced to truly understand the benefit to body, mind and spirit. Individual needs are met by watchful and well trained teachers and each practice leaves you better prepared for your life off the mat.

Yoga has brought much peace to my busy life. I find practicing at YBTS to be both calming and energizing.

Yoga by the Sea is yoga the way it should be. The teachers and classes really focus on all the limbs of Yoga to bring it all together in a way that is healing and wonderful. We are so lucky to have such an amazing resource here on the Sunshine Coast. Yoga by the Sea feeds my soul.

I love your studio! I can say that visiting your classes is one of things I look forward to during our summer visits. Your classes have such a nice relaxing, caring vibe that I think of them throughout the year. It is nice that they are not big and flashy. If you ever open up classes on the North Shore let me know! Keep doing what you are doing. Thank you.

I wanted to send you a belated thank-you for the amazing bodywork/massage last week. As you may recall, along with a general need for some external self-care, I had been dealing with a locked and sore upper back and neck, which no amount of my own self-treatment could release. After I left Yoga by the Sea and had some time to come back to earth (!), I realized that not only was my neck unlocked, but I had no residual inflammation, pain, etc., which I would have expected to take several days (or additional treatments) to subside. I certainly felt energetic blocks being released as you worked (ahhh), and overall physical/muscle relaxation, but I have never experienced the complete healing from only one session that occurred during my treatment. Thank-you for sharing your gifts with others, and for providing a sacred space to do it in.

I highly recommend Yoga by the Sea! I have always felt very welcome since day one. I can’t see daily life without yoga. I am so thankful to all of the wonderful teachers and loving people I have met.

Thanks for doing this Open House today! Great way to facilitate exploration of new stuff. For me, it was Qi Gong, which I’m now pretty stoked about!
