Hello, I?m Melissa.
In my search to deepen my spirituality, I discovered yoga about 8 years ago in London while working in the City. I fell in love with this beautiful practice instantly, finding an immediate source of calm and clarity within this busy world which, before yoga, often lacked meaning for me.
My practice changed my entire mindset, the way in which I viewed the world and the beings with which I shared it, and I soon felt an overwhelming calling to share this with as many people as I could. So, in 2018, I took a trip to Asia, and trained in Hatha-Vinyasa yoga with Samma Karuna School of Awakening, who base their training on non-dogmatic, heart-based teachings. As part of that journey, I gained my certificate in Yoga Nidra and have recently qualified in pre and post natal yoga.
As a yoga teacher I am focused continuously on Svadhyaya (self-study) to find different ways to bring a modern approach to the ancient Eastern traditional teachings of yoga, making them accessible and relatable in our Western world. I encourage all of my student to practice self-love and compassion towards themselves, which I believe, ultimately reflects outwards towards others. My belief is that practising yoga – not only the asanas (postures), but the full package – in this way, is a sure way to access inner joy, wisdom, abundance and ananda (bliss).
I invite you to share come and share your yoga journey with you with me, where I will be nothing less than honoured to guide you through.
Peace, love & light.
