Low in mood and energy

Would you benefit from learning:
How to get out of your head and into your body
Techniques to manage stress and anxiety

Hi, my name is Melissa and I am a Yoga Teacher, Culinary Nutrition Educator and a Women’s Wellness Coach and Self-Care Advocate.
I help women of all ages to take action to live each day with purpose and enjoy the journey.
Feeling your best is just as important as looking your best and actually, spoiler alter, it's way more important. When you get the inside right, everything else naturally falls into place.
Whether you have been trying to eat healthily, reduce stress and live vibrantly for years or if you are brand new to the concept, I have your back.
Using the ancient wisdom and practices of yoga and mindfulness along with my training in culinary nutrition and self-development, I educate women just like you on the steps needed to live a healthier and more meaningful life.

LIFE IS TO BE LIVED, NOT WASTED
Pause for a moment, take a deep breath in and a slow breath out!
If you had a magic wand and could improve just one area of your life right now, what would it be?
Juggling life, in general, is tough and then throw in trying to balance work, family life and your own personal challenges and suddenly life feels a whole lot tougher.
Your health and wellbeing are usually the first things to go or be neglected from your busy schedule and unhealthy habits creep in as you try to cope with the demands of everyday life.
I know this because I made this same mistake time and time again and I paid for it.
The problem is that you have to care for yourself before you can care for others because when you are thriving, everything around you is elevated. For example:
When you are fully rested, you have more energy
When you move your body intelligently, aches and pains start to disappear
When your self-talk is positive it changes the relationship you have with yourself
When you become more mindful your stress and anxiety levels reduce
And more than that, when you feel good on the inside, life on the outside mirrors that.
Life is just… better and want this for you, and more.
Which area of your life requires the most attention right now and where would you like to start? Making that decision is the first step and then you know where to focus your attention.
Every woman is unique. You are unique and so are the challenges you face which means there isn't a one size fits all.
Everything I offer classes, workshops, personalised programmes and retreats are designed to help YOU establish realistic goals, stick to them and most importantly, reach them.
If you're not sure where to start, have a look around or contact me.

I have a weekly class for you to have regular 'Me' time or if you want something longer, why not try my 2 hour Yin Yoga class, day or weekend retreats?
I also run more practical style events such as Healthy Cooking Workshops and Seasonal Self-Care events.
You will find a detailed description of all my events down below or go to the booking screen.
My classes* are based on the belief that our physical, emotional and mental health are interrelated and as such, need to be worked on together.
Classes focus on coordinating breath and physical movement to help you lengthen, strengthen and de-stress. Mindfulness and relaxation are also incorporated.
Yoga helps you to regain control of your body and mind, improving balance, focus and concentration. You will find that the benefits of this practice stay with you, long after you have rolled up your mat.
