Relax and renew your sense of well being in this 4-week online yoga program. A series of slow flow sequences emphasize connecting breath and movement to promote relaxation and cultivate peaceful feelings.

Cultivate Peace in Uncertain Times

Many of us experience competing demands and priorities, our “to do” lists are endless. We can easily become disheartened by the state of the world. As our mind races we often become disconnected from our body and senses. Yoga helps us reconnect. It helps us to transform our tendency to overthink into energy, which can be honed and used to feel calmer and more grounded. When we feel resourced it’s easier to respond rather than react to our difficulties.  Then, we can cultivate appreciating the everyday miracles that fill each of our lives—such as a glass of water, a sunset, or a warm hug.

Relax & Renew Yoga Promotes Well Being

In this series we will practice a slow flow — a sequence of poses — to help us attune to our senses. Slow flow can also increase circulation, flexibility, mental clarity, balance and focus. The emphasis will be on experiencing rejuvenation through connecting our breath and movement. Through breath-work, yoga postures, and weekly themes such as loving-kindness, inner peace, equanimity, and gratitude, we will strengthen qualities that support us in showing up more fully for ourselves and others. Thus, we deepen our sense of ease and well-being.
This class accommodates all levels.

What Past Students Have Said

“Melissa’s classes have a very sweet atmosphere. She chooses good poses and explains them well. I recommend her highly!”B. M., long-time yogi

“Melissa is full of deep wisdom and insight, and this wisdom and insight infuse her teaching. I took a yoga series she taught and I always felt safe and cared for in class, and uplifted and refreshed when I left. Melissa’s warm, inviting presence welcomes her students to show up as they are–and in the simple act of showing up, to discover compassion for self and for others. Her work uncovers and strengthens resilience in body and spirit. I highly recommend working with Melissayour heart will be happy!”- J.C.

“Melissa has changed my life. I had randomly attempted yoga (different teachers /studios etc.) over the years but to no avail. My lucky day was when I signed up for a class with Melissa —my eyes finally opened up and I realized what I have been missing out on for so many years. Melissa’s thoughtful approach, deep spirituality, and overall knowledge of the practice is second to none. The yoga experience with Melissa has not only changed my body but her insight and perspective has changed my mindset—a true blessing.”- N
