Not all techniques are suitable for everyone. Participation in any treatment/exercise program may result in injury. By doing The MELT Method® or Foundation Training™ exercises, you assume the risk of injury from performing the movements and techniques. The MELT Method® or Foundation Training™ programs are not a cure and they are not to replace medical treatment or the advice of your doctor.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Should I bring to Class

Please bring a yoga mat and water bottle. Please note that not all locations or studios will have yoga mats available so we suggest you invest in your own.

What Should I wear To class

Wear something comfortable that you are able to move freely in. We suggest exercise/yoga pants/shorts, and a fitted or semi-fitted athletic top/shirt. Excessively loose clothing inhibits the instructor from being able to determine proper form when doing exercises. It doesn’t need to be anything special but jeans or a skirt would not be appropriate. Refrain from wearing clothing with zippers, large buttons/snaps, buckles or belts, or excessive jewelry.

What class should I start with?

That said, all Classes for Foundation Training™ and The MELT Method® are generally designed for “All Levels”, unless indicated otherwise. More experienced classes at higher levels will be indicated as “Intermediate or Advanced”.

Honor and listen to your body and go deeper into your practice when you feel ready. You are your own best teacher. Proper form will give you the most benefit. This is a non-competitive environment and we encourage a community atmosphere of supporting one another. Enjoy your practice and have fun!

Should I start with a private session?

Individuals with physical limitations may want to start with a Private Training Session or enroll in a Series Program (when offered) where the principles of Foundation Training™ and/or The MELT Method® are broken down in greater detail and/or modified to fit your needs to get the maximum benefits in the shortest amount of time.
