SILVANA MELO

Light House Yoga

 

I am a certified Kripalu Yoga teacher focused on supporting students in listening to their breath and body in their personal practice. My own journey in health and wellness began as a student in Public Health at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. My coursework helped to build my understanding of health as a balance of mind, body, and spirit.

I practice yoga and meditation as a way to maintain this balance and to remain present in each moment. I hold a Bachelors of Science in Public Health and a Masters in Education. I am a Reiki Certified energy healer and have also studied energy medicine with Lisa Murphy at the Fairhaven Healing Arts Center. In energy medicine sessions, I integrate sound healing with reiki energy to restore wellbeing. I am a Radiant Child Approved children’s yoga teacher trained by Shakta Kaur Khalsa. I enjoy teaching students of all ages and supporting people in their personal journey of health and transformation.

 

 

SILVANA’S CLASSES

Slow Flow & Sound Healing

(Thursdays @ 6pm – 60 minutes)

This is a slow flow yoga class incorporating the powerful healing abilities of sound healing.

Kripalu yoga is designed for all ages, body types and energy levels. Often described as “meditation in motion,” Kripalu yoga places a special emphasis using breath and movement to connect to the wisdom of your body.

Class will begin with a centering meditation and pranayama followed by a mindful exploration of warm-ups and asanas, and ending with a restful savasana and closing centering.

In class, students are invited to explore remaining present, listening to their inner voice and finding their edge.
