    20 minute Daily Eye Yoga Class



    This is a 20 minute, real time yoga class that you can do daily for your eyes. These six exercises will reduce the eye strain that we experience from staring at our computer screens for hours on end and focusing on objects that are close in.



    Eye yoga also stimulates your vagus nerve. When we mindfully practice eye yoga, we are actually stimulating the ventral vagus nerve and sending a message to our brain that it is okay to relax.



    So when you stimulate your vagus nerve with eye yoga, you are actually sending a message to your body that it is time to relax and de-stress, which will lead to long-term improvements in mood, well-being and resilience.



    If you are looking to reduce the eye strain from screen time and reduce stress, improve your relaxation response, this eye yoga video is for you.

    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.
