What do others have to say about their experiences with Missy?

I attended Missy's (Ravi's) class in Paradise last Thursday. I'm 76 and was concerned about whether or not I would be able to do what I assumed would be body movements--I had stopped doing most of the asanas in Hatha yoga a few years back because they were too straining.  I discovered that Kundalini is completely different from any yoga I had practiced in the past and not in any way a strain on the body.  There are breathing exercises that are challenging and invigorating; and the mediation to beautiful chanting and relaxing to Missy playing her gorgeous gong were inspiring.  It turns out there are over 5000 different exercises so each class is unique which appeals to me. I found the experience physically and spiritually elevating and look forward to practicing Kundalini on a regular basis. - GN

I am so thankful to have found Lovelight Yoga. I have always been hesitant to try yoga classes because I am not very flexible and I am always intimidated by the positions. Classes with Missy have been amazing! Not only are the classes accessible physically but it is a warm and welcoming experience. I have been going to class for about a month now and when I leave class my body, mind and heart feel healthy and happy! - JA

If you are interested in an awakening of your mind and spirit, sign up for Melissa Barnard’s Kundalini yoga class.  I have attended six of Missy’s classes and each session I experience a sense of renewal.  The class exercises and meditation experiences have reduced my stress levels and put me in a positive frame of mind more ready to deal with much of the negative news in our world.  I truly feel the class gives me inspiration and hope for a better life and a better world. Missy is an amazing teacher.  She adapts to the needs of all her students offering modifications for the more difficult exercises and provides mats, bolsters, blankets, and chairs for those who need them.  She brings to the class a wonderful sense of humor and couples just the right amount of instruction with independent engagement.  The yoga exercises paired with the breathing exercises have improved by strength and general health.  I notice an increase in my energy levels throughout the week.  Melissa makes the yoga classes available to everyone by offering affordable packages.   I truly believe her classes promote a more positive outlook on life and increased happiness. -CG

Kundalini was what I never knew I was missing in my life.  I've been taking Missy's classes since October and the changes in my focus, moods, and attitude had been a serious revelation for me.  For what feels like the first time in a very long time, I am clear headed and making better, more rational and healthy decisions for myself--mentally and physically.  All of this with a woman whose spirit and tenacity make you want to keep coming back for more. 
Missy, you're a blessing!  - DJ
