AVAILABLE WHEN YOU REGISTER
6:30 - 7:45 PM
let the healing begin!
Online via Zoom
Classes will be held on a week by week basis
and will depend greatly on the rhythm
of Melinda's chemotherapy treatment
for breast cancer.
Because I am unable to make a commitment to
a regular teaching schedule, I am not asking you
to make a financial commitment.
I feel my Healing Journey will be greatly enhanced by continuing to stay connected to my yogis & friends, and that means teaching as much as I am able to. This is my Karma Yoga offering.

Om Namah Sivaya
During this challenging time, it is vital that we create opportunities to drop into a place of deep relaxation. The restorative yoga practice teaches us to respect our bodies need to turn inward and detach from the stressors we are facing. When we allow ourselves to be supported and feel safe, the healing can begin.
The intention of the restorative practice is to tone our parasympathetic (rest and digest) response, by communicating with the body through our breath and mindful presence. You will be encouraged to be attentive to what you need to feel safe and supported, physically and emotionally. By resisting the inclination to move toward the edge of your expansions, you allow yourself to find a place of comfort, peace, and deep relaxation.
Create a space you can remain uninterrupted for the duration of the practice. We will use easily available household items to support your practice. If you have bolsters, zafus, and soft yoga blocks you can use those. Where there is space, there is an opportunity to support. Gather what you might need, including the suggested items in the list below.
2 bed or couch pillows
2 bath towels
1 washcloth (to cover your eyes)
Chakra-Energetics practices inspire the awakening to our full potential. By integrating energy medicine, mudras, breath work, and Chakra Yoga, into the traditional asana practice, natural healing and growth is inspired, as we evolve on our journey through our sacred centers.
