ABOUT MELISSA

Hi, I'm Melissa, welcome to my yoga site. Let me tell you a bit about myself...

 

l started practising yoga about 14 years ago (2005), following a friend's recommendation to try a class. During the first few classes I was shown how to move and stretch in ways I wasn't used to, allowing my body to open up, be playful and move at its own pace. I began tuning into the body, igniting a sense of exploration and a feeling of calm and confidence.

 

As I developed a regular practice, I became aware of various physical and mental benefits. In particular, I was building upper as well as lower body strength, which I was thrilled about as I had always found it difficult to build strength in my arms. My stamina was also increasing making me realise the power of yoga in preparing for other physical pursuits I enjoyed, such as running and bike-rides. Together with this growing belief in my physical abilities, my focus and confidence were also improving, along with awareness, productivity and sense of overall calm.

 

After a year of practising at home and going to classes, I started to teach friends and family to help them with specific areas and continued to try different styles of yoga to develop my practice. About this time, I also began primary teacher-training and the support that yoga offered me during training and teaching was invaluable. It helped me to stay focused, calm, energised and almost cold-free, another bonus! I also got the opportunity to teach yoga to the children which they enjoyed, especially Warrior 2. Fast-forward some years and I am now teaching yoga as an instructor. Soon after I qualified (RYS 200hrs, Yoga Alliance), I spent a summer teaching ‘Yoga for Everyone’ to holiday-makers and locals in Rhodes (Greece) in the peaceful grassy moat of the medieval town.

 

I now teach Vinyasa Flow classes in London. The classes combine the breath, alignment and a sense of exploration to help students experience the dynamics and benefits of yoga. It would be great to see you!

 

 Namaste
