3 Day Midweek Retreat at
The Lygon Arms in the Cotswolds
8th-10th August 2023
The Lygon Arms is the most charming hotel, situated in the Cotswolds (sister hotel to the Chewton Glen). Steeped in over 600 years history this beautiful place has been host to royalty. Retreat in luxury!
Join me on this immersive retreat and discover a connection with the elements, harnessing their power to reduce stress and encourage a calmer, more balanced outlook. Ayurveda, derived from the Sanskrit word Ayur (life) and veda (science or knowledge), teaches us that the natural world is made up of 5 elements - earth, water, fire, air & space. Through pranayama (breath work), meditation, yoga, the deep relaxation of yoga nidra, crystal singing bowl sound healing and embracing nature, feel inspired by the elements to reconnect with a more restful, serene you.

BALANCING THE CHAKRAS DAY RETREAT
8th July 2023
The Chakras are our energy centres in the body. Think of them all working together as a system. When one is blocked & the flow of energy is restricted, the others will compensate throwing the whole system off balance. I am so excited to be sharing this offering with fellow teacher & friend Michelle Maslin Taylor. This retreat day will look to balance the flow of energy through the chakras to allow the system to work more harmoniously. The day will begin with a tea circle, flow yoga, nourishing plant based lunch, optional meditational walk, reiki infused yin yoga, yoga nidra & the healing sounds of the crystal singing bowls £89.

A new moon marks the beginning phase of the monthly lunar cycle, when the moon & sun are in perfect alignment. It's a time for clearing & making way for what's to come.

ABOUT MELISSA YOGA
I’ve been practicing yoga for over 20 years. Travelling to far away places as cabin crew has given me the opportunity to practice with many wonderful teachers in the most amazing places. Initially setting out with a physical practice I soon realised yoga is so much more. I took a teacher training in 2012 with the late & most incredible yogi Conrad Paul (I clearly remember his last words to me being ‘Go shine the light’ so here I am!) & then pre & post natal training with Yoga London in 2016, Yoga Nidra & Crystal Singing bowl Sound Healing.
I believe yoga is for EVERYONE & love to share the life changing practice with all. I offer classes, workshops, retreats, one to one & corporate yoga. If you are completely new or a seasoned yogi there is a class for you. There are always variations to challenge & modifications within poses & alternatives to simplify. Classes are aimed for all levels. I am here to support you on your yogic path. There is no need to be flexible! Join our wonderful nurturing yoga community. Practicing together creates the most wonderful energy. Come along!! 🙏
