Find deep and nourishing rest
Mel will draw from her experience in the following types of Yoga to create a bespoke one to one session for you.
In restorative yoga, we use soothing ‘asana’ (postures) in which the body is fully supported by props like yoga bolsters and blankets. Many of the poses are performed lying still.
This means that rather than having to make an effort, you can sink into the postures to release tension and achieve deep relaxation.
Yoga nidra is a guided meditation practice that’s simple yet often profoundly beneficial. Unlike other meditation, there’s no effort needed – you can’t get it wrong!
‘Nidra’ translates as ‘sleep’. When you practice yoga nidra, it puts your body into a state of deep sleep, while your mind stays awake and alert. In this ‘hypnagogic state’ you can begin to explore thoughts and emotions which might previously have felt overwhelming.
Well Woman Yoga
This is a form of yoga practice designed to support women through all phases of their lives, from menarche, the menstruating years, pregnancy, post-natal and menopause. Combining aspects of restorative yoga and yoga nidra along with a focus of bringing more energy and awareness into the womb space, this practice can be both healing and empowering.
What will I get from one-to-one yoga?
You will receive:
A bespoke, deeply healing course of yoga – designed to help you overcome the challenges you face
Your own personal yoga nidra mp3 recordings, so that you can continue your healing journey in between sessions, at home.
Additional email support from me, in between sessions, as and when you need it
What does a one-to-one session look like?
In your first session, we’ll do the groundwork to create an effective programme of treatment. I’ll be a caring, listening ear while you talk me through your challenges and aims. Once I understand the difficulties you’re facing, I’ll be able to design the best treatment programme for your needs using a combination of restorative yoga and yoga nidra (relaxed meditation practice). Read more about these types of yoga below.
What is restorative yoga?
Restorative yoga helps to to release muscular tension, particularly in areas like the hamstrings, jaw, lower back, shoulders, diaphragm, psoas and abdomen. This creates space for the breath, which takes the body out of ‘flight or fight mode’. This makes restorative yoga incredibly beneficial for the nervous system, helping to combat stress, and improve digestion and immunity.
