    Guided Meditation for Pain Relief | Yoga with Melissa 552

    Guided Meditation for Pain Relief | Yoga with Melissa 552

    Guided Meditation for Pain Relief



    This guided meditation was inspired by my own experience with chronic pain and was specifically designed to bring compassion and kindness to those of you who are going through the physical and emotional challenges of dealing with pain. Pain is a normal part of our human experience. Globally it is estimated that about 1 in 5 people or 1.5 billion people worldwide experience chronic pain. 



    This meditation is designed to bring acceptance, relaxation and softening to the experience of pain in your body. Each time you listen you will deepen the loving kindness, compassion, acceptance and  softening around pain that is possible through breathing and visualization. Repeated listening is recommended.

    60 min Restorative Yoga for Immune System | Yoga with Melissa 551

    60 min Restorative Yoga for Immune System | Yoga with Melissa 551

    60 min Restorative Yoga for Immune System | Yoga with Melissa 551



    This 60 minute restorative yoga class for your immune system will focus on 3 primary organs of your immune system: your thymus, lymph nodes and your spleen. 



    Your thymus is located behind your breastbone above your heart. Your thymus is responsible for T cells which move through your body and continually monitor the surface of your cells for changes. We will practice restorative backbend to stimulate your thymus glands. 



    Your lymph nodes occur anywhere there is a crease in your body. Think armpits, groin, elbow, behind your knees. Your lymph nodes act as filters trapping germs and activating antibodies in your blood. If your lymph nodes are swollen your immune system is active and fighting and infection. We will practice restorative yoga poses to access the groin, armpits and knees in this class. 



    Your spleen is located in your upper left abdomen underneath your diaphragm. It stores immune cells called scavenger cells that filter germs that get into your bloodstream. We will be practicing a restorative side bend to stimulate your spleen in this restorative yoga class for your immune system.

    This 10 minute yoga nidra is a short guided practice that will take you through a full body scan.



    You can find my full yoga nidra playlist on YouTube here:

    In this 10 Minute Yoga Nidra, I will guide you through a body scan that will leave you feeling relaxed yet energized.



    Yoga Nidra is a form of meditation that helps with insomnia, anxiety, stress, adrenal fatigue, ptsd and so much more.



    Through this guided meditation I will lead you into a form of conscious sleep where you will be physically, mentally and emotionally relaxed and yet aware. You will move through your waking state, travel through the dreaming state and enter into a deep sleep state, all while remaining fully awake. In this state of deep relaxation you will receive clarity of mind, stillness and calm. The restorative quality of this meditation often leads to deep insight.



    Research on yoga nidra suggests that just one hour of yoga nidra is equivalent to four hours of healthy sleep. Prepare to release tension and anxiety while being rejuvenated to a state of inner calm in this short 10 minute yoga nidra full body scan.

    30 minute Yin Yoga to Relax | Yoga with Melissa 548



    Today’s class is a 30 minute yin yoga class to relax. For this 30 minute YouTube yin yoga class you will need a folded blanket and 2 blocks.



    This 30 minute yin yoga class is designed to support you in slowing down so you can feel your embodied sensations, emotions and allow relaxation to unfold.



    The yin yoga class begins with a centering so you can slow down and breathe, feel the always present support of the earth and the sensations that are present in your body. We will move into wide-knee child’s pose to feel the release in your low back and breathe deep into your low belly and low back. Easy pose twist will allow you to further release tension in your back and allow time for your emotions to be digested. Butterfly pose will give more space to relax and allow the energy to be gathered into your lower dantien.



    All yin poses will be held for five minutes. We stay for a while to pull and pressurize the deeper connective tissues that wrap around the joints and bones. Our poem is Today by Mary Oliver and will be enjoyed in savasana.

    Relieve Frozen Shoulder Pain & Exhaustion | 60 min Restorative Yoga at the Wall YwM 547

    Relieve Frozen Shoulder Pain & Exhaustion | 60 min Restorative Yoga at the Wall YwM 547

    Relieve Frozen Shoulder Pain



    One thing about having a frozen shoulder this time around is the constant pain. It has meant that lying down on the ground is less accessible and legs up the wall is mostly out of the question.



    Or is it?



    What I have learned from having frozen shoulder for second time is that the way I recovered the last time is not necessarily the way I am going to be able to recover this time.



    If any of you have frozen shoulder or have had frozen shoulder you will know that sleeping is difficult and over time that leads to exhaustion. As yogis, our go-to pose for exhaustion is legs up the wall.



    This time, with a frozen shoulder, lying on the ground is painful. What I share in this class, is what if restorative yoga doesn’t have to look like it always did? What if we gently move our shoulders in these inverted “up the wall poses” to keep our shoulders happy?



    The result is a restorative yoga class at the wall to relieve frozen shoulder pain and exhaustion.
