I hear everyday what a gift the Yoga with Melissa classes are to you. You love the wisdom I share through the teachings. How grateful you are for our time together in yoga. That you find the teachings both beautiful and touching on a personal level. You appreciate how they allow you to connect with your own internal light. That even one class can make a huge difference, but that weekly classes are changing your lives. More than that, you love the outdoor locations and natural scenery that we provide in beautiful British Columbia.
I am so grateful for all of your support. There are many ways you can support us. You can subscribe to our YouTube channel, like our videos and leave comments. You can share our videos with other people to help spread the word.
The main way we are able to be freely giving offering weekly yoga videos is through our membership community. To become a supporting member click here.
You can also offer monetary donations to offset the financial costs of producing the Yoga with Melissa episodes.
You can sponsor an episode of Yoga with Melissa for $200
The costs involved in producing Yoga with Melissa each week include: web hosting, video distribution costs, marketing costs (including social media software and email marketing software), wages for bookkeeping and online work, internet fees, and hardware such as batteries.

You can support us in keeping our equipment current. One of the things we are currently saving up for is the new DJI Mavic Mini. This drone is small enough to fit in Tim’s pocket so that it would be portable enough for our on location shoots. It would allow us to continue to capture amazing footage of the west coast for our yoga classes. By the way, please join me in congratulating Tim on passing his recent license testing. $459.99
We would like to do more on location shooting. This allows us to get away for 3 days at a time and film 6 episodes of Yoga with Melissa like we did in the Yurt in Sooke in October of 2019 or go away to California in January of 2019 for filming. More recently we have purchased a super inexpensive van, thanks to your donations so we can go away camping for 3 nights at a time and do some on location filming this summer.
These trips will still cost us money. There is the cost of gas, the cost of the campsites ($30/night) and the cost to convert the van into a comfortable camping vehicle. If you would like to support us in this, we would be incredibly grateful.
In the summer of 2019 we have several trips planned to Tofino, Ucluelet, Englishman River Falls, Cowichan Lake, Strathcona, French Beach in Sooke, and Jasper National Park. The footage is going to be gorgeous.
