Restorative Yoga


This class is taught by:

Mely Ann

"I began practicing yoga 30 years ago when I was living in Templeton. A life long dancer and pilates instructor, I enjoy the stretching, strengthening, the way yoga makes me feel. It became a regular part of my routine ~ Something I looked forward to. And then something else happened... My life began to change in positive ways. My love and appreciation for all things, big and small grew. I felt new peace, newfound clarity. I have learned that the practice of yoga creates a perfect platform to reveal the inner light and beauty that is within each and every one of us.
My passion took me many places to study and practice. I have traveled to take classes from Seane Corn, Shiva Rea, Jason Crandall and Rod Stryker to name a few. It is said that to really learn something, teach it. So I took the plunge and became a teacher!!
I love creating classes for all levels. Yoga truly is for every body. And because our bodies continue to change, there are many styles of yoga that take in the needs of each person at all levels and ages. Being a Reiki practitioner, I love to spoil my students with healing hands.
When I am not on the mat, I am taking my practice out into the world ~ Yoga by the shore, ballet dancing, gardening, hiking this pristine county we live in, exploring our beaches, learning to surf, reading endless inspirational books on yoga practice, and I am part of a women's group ~ Girls Going Greater ~ bringing awareness and support to women and children in need on the Central Coast.
It is a joy and an honor to become a part of the Yoga Village family!"
Restorative yoga is practiced to reduce stress, restore health, and move the body in the direction of balance. We will begin with combination of yin poses (deep stretches focused on releasing the connective tissue and joints), Restorative poses (supported with props and held 10- 15 mins), and Pranayama (breath exercise).
