Restorative yoga training reflections

Surrounding any time spent at Bhadra is the welcoming energy of Melanie and the studio space.

The training consists of 3 main components:

  1. The weekend training which is full of teachings and experiential moments, yet mostly felt like a personal retreat.
  2. The opportunity to experience a full service session, one word...nirvana.
  3. The privilege to assist in 4 sessions. This continues the learning, yet is peaceful/altruistic as you help to create a relaxed state for the participants.

I would highly recommend!

"My conscious mind was hanging on by a thread!"

Melanie,

During today's Restorative Yoga I nearly fell asleep! My conscious mind was hanging on by a thread!
Thank you!

"...a perfect environment for practicing yoga."

I have been taking yoga classes from Melanie for 14 years. I have rheumatoid arthritis and issues with bulging discs in my spine/sciatica that require ongoing maintenance. Yoga has helped me to manage these challenges mentally and physically. Yoga has also helped me to put things in perspective with regard to having a super busy life as a working mom. Melanie is a great teacher and she provides a perfect environment for practicing yoga. She truly cares about her students and providing a positive and healthy yoga experience. - Amy Miller, May 2013

"I loved the experience!"

Dear Melanie, I just wanted to thank you again for offering the “Blindfold Yoga Workshop.”  Although I was a little anxious about trying it at first because I don’t have the best balance, I wanted to let you know that I loved the experience!  It was very soothing and relaxing, but also challenging in a good way!

"Bhadra Yoga is convenient and locally owned."

I appreciate that Bhadra Yoga is convenient and locally owned.  More important, each teacher is extremely knowledgeable and has special energy that has helped me to reach a meaningful practice.
