Breathe in, Breathe Out

There is a way we can improve the quality of life which is completely free, readily available, and easily accessible at any given moment - our breath. However, many of us are caught up in ‘unnatural’ breath patterns, which can create tension in the body, increase feelings of stress and anxiety, and leave us feeling depleted, weak and low. This workshop is for anyone interested in truly understanding the full potential that is held in each breath, including experienced yoga practitioners and total beginners.

Next workshop: None planned at present.


Emotional Health

We will combine yoga postures with yoga philosophy to help us understand anxiety and depression as sensation and feedback. The more we can build our awareness of our body sensations, of the movement of the breath, and the thoughts and emotions that arise and fall, the more we build our inner resilience and emotional strength. This becomes our inner resource to get us through the darkest days

Mel’s workshops and retreat have had a huge impact on helping me to manage my chronic fatigue syndrome in a way that nothing else has. I can highly recommend both, to those just wishing to treat themselves to some high quality R&R and for those managing stress or chronic illness.
