'I have been working with Melissa for a year now and what a pleasure that has been. Her friendly, positive, calm and focused approach gets things done. I don’t have to tell Melissa what to do, I simply make a request and she uses her years of experience and initiative to deliver time and time again.
Working with Melissa at Yogadmin has allowed me to increase my yoga offerings. She has supported me in delivering three yoga retreats in beautiful places. Melissa is part of my yoga team and I feel very grateful to have found her.'
Rosemary Booker, yoga teacher & co-founder of RBBRetreats
'I first got in touch with Melissa when I had moved to a new studio and was feeling rather overwhelmed. She completely streamlined my administration, helping me find and set up a new online booking system and completing all kinds of tasks that I just didn’t have time to do! She is utterly reliable, always gets things done on time and to a really high standard. No matter how big or small your business she invests in you and gives you her absolute best. I can’t recommend her highly enough.'
Emma Borlase, pilates teacher & founder of Method Pilates
'When I started working with Melissa, I imagined it would be a little bit of admin here and there but she’s so good at her work she’s now one of my key team members. My company is expanding and I explained how I’d like to grow and she’s right there with me, seeing the bigger vision and helping with all my newsletters - I no longer write them - and no doubt this will grow into running a section of the business in time. I cannot recommend her enough!'
Sally Griffyn, Founder, Millionaire Yogi
'As a yoga teacher and busy mum, I cannot thank Melissa enough for the support that allows me to focus on what I'm good at. I feel calmer and more organised in such a busy life stage. She can do anything for me, from invoicing to spreadsheets (which I have no idea how to do!), newsletters and website updates.
A good example is her research, delivery and management of a booking system for me, which has made a huge difference on a day to day level - I taught for 10 years putting it off, until I met Melissa! I believe she can enhance the performance, earning potential and professionalism for anyone looking for organisational support. I have more time and less stress because of Yogadmin.'
Tania Brown, yoga teacher & award winning retreat leader
'As a busy city yoga teacher my yoga classes happen in studios, corporate settings and private classes in peoples homes. The service Melissa provides at Yogadmin is a game changer, it allows me to spend more time on the ground, creating and conjuring up new classes, projects and retreats. I am able to hand over both simple and more complex admin tasks to Melissa, some months it's a simple invoicing process while others might entail a retreat planning session or website enhancement.
I often call on Melissa's help and expertise and I would highly recommend to any yoga teachers / fitness professionals who need a few more hours in their day or more support!'
Will Wheeler, yoga teacher and Lululemon ambassador
'This retreat was so well organized. Everything that I heard about the transportation to and from the airport was favorable and I will say our driver was ready and waiting for us at the airport when we landed.
The hotel was ready for us on arrival and even kept a room open the last day for those leaving late so they could shower and change before their return flights. The shirts and teas gifted to us were lovely and the hotel made arrangements with Erin to have them in the rooms when the participants arrived. They had the umbrellas open on the yoga deck every morning early so we didn't have to try to open them ourselves. I don't know if the communications between the organisers and the hotel made all of that happen but I took notice and it made our stay this year even more delightful.'
Florence, participant on Santorini 2015 retreat with Erin Prichard
'I have known Melissa for a few years now. She has been helping us with all the administration of the company. She understands very well what needs to be done when, showing a proactive approach that is most valuable. She is very organised, you can fully trust and rely on her. Whenever something new was put in front of her she learnt it very quickly, enabling smooth changes when needed.
I can strongly recommend her to anyone that wants help on the admin side, on both a personal and professional level.'
Ignacio Ruiz, Founder & CEO, iRuiz Technologies (and qualified yoga teacher)
'During our four years working together at the London Philharmonic Orchestra Melissa was a highly dependable, hugely organised and entirely unflappable Events Manager for our busy Fundraising team. Not the least in her list of achievements in the role were three sparkling gala evenings for 250 people organised with finesse, calmness and aplomb. Always a pleasure to work with and with an acute eye for the smallest detail, Melissa ensured that all of our events, big or small, ran like clockwork.'
Nick Jackman, Development Director, London Philharmonic Orchestra
