The Benefits & Intended Outcomes Of This Retreat:

You will be taught & supported to move with less tension so that you feel more secure in your own sense of self.  Develop a greater understanding of why you do what you do so that you feel more empowered to be your true, authentic self. Become more aware of the internal dialogue that is holding you back from the life you desire. Develop a more kind, loving relationship with yourself.

​You will be supported with Yoga, Meditation, Breathwork, Sound Healing & other powerful (yet gentle) mindfulness practices to inhabit your body in a way which requires less of what you’ve always done, so that you experience a new way to move through everyday life.

You will learn new skills that you can take back home with you & use in your everyday life that will bring more ease in the way that you move and interact with others.

Instructors and Staff

Mel

Instructor

Based in London with her two teenage children, Mel enjoys connecting people with their own, unique rhythm which supports a way of moving through life that feels more authentic. She has experienced first-hand what it is like to live with post-traumatic stress disorder and overcome generational dysfunction. Since 2018, her work has focused on somatic therapies that facilitate healing trauma. She identifies with this being her purpose, her true calling and passion.



A qualified Yoga Teacher and Sound Healer, Mel also has an interest in Psychology and has studied Counselling skills with The Minster Centre in London. She is also a devoted student of The Alexander Technique, training with Anthony Kingsley. She studied Myofascial Energetic Release (MER) in Poland with the gifted Satyarthi Peloquin who worked with world renowned, Osho as his body worker.



She holds space regularly for people of all ages & levels (online and in person) and offers mental health support for people suffering with trauma and illness. Well known as an expert in the field of healing and wellbeing she is also frequently invited to write articles connected to these topics.​



Mel believes the recipe for deep, integrative healing is relational and that we need to feel supported in a way that we haven't yet experienced. We need to feel safe in order to process difficult emotions and experiences from the past and integrate them like we digest a meal so that we are no longer overwhelmed and consumed by the past. Mel has done and continues to do the work so that she can be present to facilitate the space that you need to do yours.
