    Mel, thank you so much for offering Online Fitness Classes!  I love all your videos.  You provide a great variety of exercises and it can be modified to make it harder which is great.  I was telling everyone because I am used to your style of yoga, when I close my eyes and hear your voice, it’s like we are in the same room.  Much love, Jackie.
