Oh just a couple of #goddesses in grasshopper pose taken at The Yoga Hive in Sunday after my last workshop there.
The last few years have been a cycle of major work, involving huge commitments of my time to go deep into goals and learning and building skill. Aka I’ve been working a lot. What I did not do very much: socialize. I miss you!

My commitment for the rest of this year and 2019 is very much about connection and community. And simplification and letting go of some of my many projects.
So: if you want to hang with me know that I also want to hang with you! Please invite me to events and phone calls and long walks. Please come to my classes (as my guest) and get green juice with me afterward. Please know that if I can’t make it that week to try again! I will also be reaching out to friends every. Single. Week. Because I need you all.
To that end I’ve also put in my notice that I am letting go of one of my weekly yoga classes: my Wednesday night class at YogaWorks 14th St NW Don’t worry I’m still teaching three other classes each week there. Just (whenever they find a new teacher for that class) reclaiming one of my weekday evenings.
We are all navigating this thing called balance. It isn’t static. It moves, it wobbles, it is a dynamic process. If you are in dc I hope you’ll join me tomorrow night at YogaWorks 14th for one of my last Wednesday night classes!

Many teachers of yoga go through times where they wonder if their students appreciate the depth of their teaching. They wonder if they should adapt their style, push harder, get stricter, power up, niche down, etc.
And sometimes you just know as a teacher that the teachings have landed 👽. < 🤪.I got that rich experience of witnessing the teachings land like little sparkle bombs on the heart this weekend. To a packed room for three creative, conversational playful practices, I was heard. The synthesis of all the teachers and teachings before me came through. As I hope it to always do. And I feel so full..Gratitude for this path, which has not always been clear, has always involved questioning and challenging and growing. And working hard, and laughing throughout..This weekend teaching at The Yoga Hive was a treat beyond what I imagined. Much gratitude to Lizandra Vidal for the idea (love you!) and connections, to @yogahivepgh for making it happen. Thanks Lindsay for taking this dear photo..I’ll be back next year! I’m thinking Spacious Sidebody and sequencing and of course more myofascial release... 😄😄😄😄

US elections may be over, but this is a powerful read on the role of yogis in this “battlefield” from my friend Hari-kirtana Das. It’s about much more than voting.

“Bhagavad-gita, was a book about how a yogi should respond to the most extreme kind of political problem: *armed conflict*. The response the Gita advocated wasn’t to walk off the battlefield and go do yoga in the forest; it was to step up to the call of duty and fight the good fight.

Yoga is, among other things, a moral philosophy that calls us not just to refrain from harming others but to act for the benefit of others as well.” <3

The Yoga of Voting – Hari-kirtana das

I don’t know why I’m so surprised when I meet young people who have no interest in voting. After all, I didn’t vote the first few times I could have. Watching the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights Movement play out on the nightly news inspired my youthful interest in politics. But by the time ….

I’m teaching for this 300 hour yoga teacher training in Florida in April of next year! Come join at Destin Hot Yoga 🙂

Yoga with Melissa

Our first training module considers yoga as a movement modality and is meant to provide you with a solid foundation in functional anatomy and kinesiology as it pertains to yoga asana. We will explore the musculoskeletal landscape and gain an experiential understanding of the body’s architecture. We’ll learn different roles muscles can play, specific joint actions, and how bones can best receive and transmit force or load. We’ll become “movement literate”, refining our verbal cues to allow for specificity and accuracy in our teaching.

​Thinking critically about asana, we’ll learn ways to introduce variability and functionality into our classes. We’ll break down postures into their component parts and gain techniques to help keep our students safe and injury averse. We’ll also learn how to recognize and work with common imbalances and/or limitations that show up in our students and how to use corrective movement exercises to help improve muscle balance and joint function. We’ll highlight the importance of stability and strength to balance extreme ranges of motion, and we’ll tie it all together with an anatomy informed approach to sequencing and transitioning. Our first module will give you the confidence you need to teach inspired and effective classes and distinguish yourself as a movement specialist!

Payment Plans available for all three modules only.
