Private Yoga Instruction
Wellness in Harmony offers private Yoga instruction with Melanie Lanese in our downtown Phoenixville office.
Yoga refers to a state of union. The state of union may discovered through breath control, meditation, or postures (asana). It is possible to be doing anything and still be doing yoga. Focus is key to achieve this union. Focus is necessary to bring it all together in a meaningful way.
“Yoga is the bringing together of that which was never separate.” -Richard Miller, Ph.D., IRI, IAYT (iRest, Yoga Nidra)
What to Expect During Your Private Yoga Instruction
During your private yoga instruction, you can expect a lighthearted environment with specific instructions. It’ll be fun, you’ll learn something, and there will be benefits for your body, mind, and spirit. We will be using elements of earth, water, fire, air, and spirit to achieve this:
Earth – feeling secure in your body. Earth provides the foundation where you stand
Water – flow and motion as you move from pose to pose
Fire – reducing and eliminating obstacles that may hold you back
Air – balancing it all out with love and focus
Ether – bringing in the spiritual aspect for inner strength
Private yoga instruction classes are spaces for recovery. Recovering what you may have thought you lost; your wholeness. As an instructor, part of what I provide is an opportunity to show you what is right about you so that when the time comes, you have the strength to face what needs to be either improved or accepted about yourself. Then you can welcome all aspects of yourself into your rediscovered wholeness.
About Melanie Lanese:
Outside of yoga I am a Massage Therapist and I work extensively with oncology patients. Most of them tell me that they feel as though they have lost part of themselves in the process of healing their physical bodies. Although they may feel broken apart, I see them as their whole selves. To me, they are akin to kaleidoscopes, always patterned differently, but always fascinating and beautiful. Their wholeness has always been there and is right about them. I want to let them see that for themselves.
Since I want to live in a world where there is peace, love, freedom, respect, support, kindness, harmony, and compassion, my classes will reflect that belief. As a practitioner and instructor of yoga, I foster an environment of love and acceptance. I will support you by providing a safe environment where you come to explore deeper in order to recognize your wholeness and deepen into it. I want for you to be able to confirm your own well-being.
