Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation
This has been Melissa’s focus for many years now, her teaching experience is over 12 years.
Melissa shares this experience in the form of weekly Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation classes, week-end and week long retreats, Mindfulness Meditation Courses, and workshops, across the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, and along the East Coast of Queensland, Australia.
Her studies began with Radiant Light Yoga, it ignited an interest for Yoga and Meditation and all that it entails, endeavouring to bring the teachings into every aspect of her daily moments
Her influences and continuing immersion into yoga have continued with the teachings from Judith Lasater, Donna Farhi, Flo Fenton, Shiva Rea,Simon Park, B. K. S. Iyengar, Ian Gawler and Paul and Maia Bedson (Meditation)
Melissa has a strong belief that embracing an holistic lifestyle through yoga, diet, and meditation helps to create a harmonious and balanced life. Bringing to your everyday moments good health, a sense of joy, inner peace and knowledge. Yoga brings life to your life.
In Melissa’s classes you are encouraged to explore fluidity of movement, with awareness to breath, and where it is flowing. Challenging at times, yet nurturing, building strength and flexibility, using the breath to guide one to feel and be present with what is needed in each moment. Due to Melissa’s many years of teaching experience every level is catered for, from the beginner to the advanced. With her interest in Yoga Therapy those with specific health concerns are also looked after in a safe and nurturing environment.
Meditation is explored at the beginning and at the end of each class. It allows one to glean a taste for that inner quietude that resides within. Encouraging the residue of the practice to be taken with you as you leave class.
Melissa has deepened her studies and personal practice by completing a Mindfulness Based Stillness Meditation [MBSM] teacher-training programme at the Gawler Foundation in Yarra Valley [Vic]. An engaging journey, which develops wisdom and compassion through awareness of body, emotion, mind and spirit as one, integrated whole.
