Podcast - Shamanic Opening

Message from the Aboriginal grand-mothers. 2020 is the most profound opening to higher evolution. As Mother Earth shifts her vibration to the next level, she is shaking off all the restrictive man-made structures to liberate her essence. In this process our human consciousness is transforming with her. This is a time of great awakening! So let’s tune into the sacred vibration of our planet and co-create a New Paradigm!
Yoga Class – Hips and Heart

Yoga Class - Hips and Heart

Join me on this Iyengar inspired journey to trust and surrender. Our focus is on opening the hips and the heart. Life always unfolds in the most perfect way for our higher evolution. Sometimes we resist change or feel frustrated if life does not flow the way we like, but ultimately whatever we experience is a guide to show us how we can connect more deeply to that pure source of energy that flows abundantly inside and around us. Life becomes a joy when we trust and surrender to the natural flow of life.

” If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation. “

Melanie is an inspiration! I’m fortunate enough to have 3 private classes a week with her. Her yoga knowledge, skills and intuition of what I need from my yoga has personally transformed my life! I would be lost without her.

If I could give Melanie more stars I would. She brings her Heart into each class she teaches, her Openness, Love and Dedication to the practice of Yoga Radiates from her and her students are Transformed.I am extremely blessed to have Melanie as my teacher. Each class with her is a magical moment of softening and opening not only into the physical practice of yoga, but also into the Oneness between all aspects of this mysterious Being that we are. Her deep knowledge of yoga comes from years and years of self practice and study, and you Know and Feel that you are in the presence of one who embodies what she teaches. This is clearly seen in the Love all her students have for her.If you are lucky enough to come across Melanie don't hesitate to sign up for her classes, you will be giving yourself a very special gift indeed.

Mel is such an inspiration and i have followed her classes with great pleasure for more than 10 years. The way Mel describes the most difficult poses in class with such detail and clarity is mind blowing. This was very important during the zoom classes which have been such a life saver for the last year and a half. I feel blessed to be a part of her yoga journey she has been making for such a long time.

I feel incredibly blessed to have met Mel as my first yoga teacher in Cape Town 12 years ago and to have been able to enjoy her wonderful teachings ever since.She teaches yoga with great intention, knowledge and attention to alignment, thereby infusing her lessons with a deep insight into the human body and the healing power of yoga.With her calm presence, Mel knows how to create a loving and safe environment for students of all levels to deeply explore their own personal physical and energetic experience on the mat.In her unique style, she makes her classes very personal, and she beautifully links our yoga practice to our experiences in real life, its challenges and adventures, making it a deeply insightful experience that helps us to connect to ourselves and the world around us with greater awareness.In the past few years, she has demonstrated to be very skilled in online yoga teaching too, guiding a beautiful, growing community of people worldwide through their yoga practice - connecting to their experience virtually in such a way that it felt as if you were in her yoga studio.I am so grateful for your magical yoga guidance lieve Mel, may your teachings reach the souls & hearts of people far and wide.I’m excited for you to continue to share your teachings in Madeira and beyond, and am looking forward to continue my practice with you!LoveLilian

This is not your average yoga class! It stimulates a deep journey of learning and self discovery. Classes are a well thought out mix of technical alignment, philosophy, yoga history, breathing and fun! Yogaflow is professional in every way, not only in very precise and concise teachings, but in administrative and the delivery of the online classes too. Everything works! I highly recommend this personal experience.
