Brought a friend here to do a yoga retreat with Mel after the break up of his marraige, he was very depressed and insular, two weeks later, 2 hr Hatha yoga classes every day and he was invigorated and alive again, it had brought that sparkle back to his eye. Mel is an inspiring and knowledgeable teacher with so much... More

As a yoga teacher myself, I always enjoy attending other classes so I can learn from other wonderful instructos. Mel is strict, but fun and I enjoyed her class. Her two dogs sometimes join us too, that adds colour to the session. If you are looking for yoga on Thong Nai Pan Yai, she is perfect, just 15 minutes walk... More

My partner and I found Mel by accident on our first trip together to Thong Nai Pan. But the second time around, we went especially to do yoga with Mel and stayed for a month!! For me Mel is the best yoga practitioner that I've ever found (having also travelled to Bali for yoga holidays as well as practicing yoga... More

I arrived to Mel's Yoga Studio with a bad back and feeling slightly sceptical (due to my previous yoga experience). Two weeks later, not only do I feel physically better and fitter, but also I'm mentally rejuvenated and eager to continue with the practice. Mel was extremely knowledgeable about my back injury and offered gentle guidance through movements. I felt... More

a short 15-20 mins walk from either of the local beaches - ideal as a warm up - beginners and experienced practitioners are always welcomed by Mel, a relaxed and very helpful teachers (and very responsive to all e-mail enquiries). The Studio is just off the main road, basically in the jungle, hard to go back practising in a city... More

When staying in Koh Phangan, we visited one of Melanies classes together. Before we went, Melanie was already very helpful via email explaining the directions to her and answering questions. best is to take a taxi or just walk. The studio is basic, in the middle of the woods, but nice and quiet. She asked everybody of her skill level... More

It was wonderful to come to Mel and take yogaclasses - both the beginenrsclass in the mornings and the more advanced classes in the afternoons. I really enjoyed Hatha yoga, and Mel is a very good and gentle teacher. Since it was the end of season I had some classes where I was the only student - what a luxury.... More

Being a total yoga newbie made me a tad nervous about participating in a two hour Hatha yoga class, but I loved it from the get to, and attended the affordable classes almost every day that I spent on Koh Phangan. Mel is an amazing instructor, very perceptive and hands on, she helped me stretch further, meditate deeper and breath... More

I really enjoyed my time on the island largely because of how wonderful and healthy I felt. The Yoga Studio was a huge part of that experience. Waking up early and walking to a 2 hour session of Hatha yoga, followed by genuinely healthy and lovingly prepared food was just what I needed after the crowded streets of Bangkok. I... More

Myself and partner spent 3 days doing yoga with Mel and eating at the vegan cafe. I am used to yoga but it was my partners first time, we were both really impressed. The sessions last just under 2 hours and the classes are generally quite small therefore Mel is able to give a lot of personal attention to every... More
