MEDITATION & YOGA
Explore how alignment, breathing, balancing, stretching and strengthening provide the ideal opportunity to apply Buddhist meditation techniques to experience your mind, bring awareness to habits, and open your heart. Melissa guides you in both movement and stillness practices, as well as offers dharma and poetry readings. Each class encourages gentleness of breath, attention to alignment, creative movement, relationship to the ground and the process of gravity.

Gathering for regular group practice is a modern form of shared community collective. Through movement and stillness of the group, we support one and other in subtle, intimate and profound ways, working beyond language, shifting patterns, habits and supporting the outer world in endless ways. For our hearts, minds, bodies, children, lovers, family, friends, community, art, environment, politic, and world. Every sentient being on earth.
Melissa offers a variety of ways to enter practice by teaching series in yoga studios, wilderness settings, corporate settings, and beautiful retreat centres. She leads two public classes each week at Modo Yoga Kelowna on Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday mornings.
