Lotus & Compass Yoga
"Yesterday I was clever so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise so I am changing myself." - Rumi
Yoga has been a transformational practice in my life. From the very first time I attended a yoga class in college, I noticed a bit of a shift once I allowed myself to fully arrive, body and mind, and gave myself permission to surrender. We spend much of our lives chasing the illusion of control. Once we realize that we actually control very little, and begin to shift the focus inward, that is when the true healing can begin.
I come to my mat as a teacher with the goal of creating a space where you can have a true, honest experience of yourself. It is not about getting all of the poses right (or really, even doing all of the poses. Some yoga poses I will probably never master and that is okay...don't let Instagram fool you: most yogis cannot fold into a pretzel). Arrive to your mat, just as you are, and allow yourself the space to move your body freely and without judgment. You deserve it. View our class schedule to find out where you can join us (in person or virtually) to take a class.
IN PERSON CLASSES: starting on August 3rd, 2021, in person yoga classes will resume at The Herbarium Natural Apothecary in Chicopee Center at 264 Exchange Street Chicopee, MA (inside the same building and directly across from our former brick and mortar store!) Melaney is so excited to be back! We recommend bringing a bottle of water and a yoga mat. Shared blocks, blankets and bolsters are available for use during class. ** In accordance with current CDC guidelines, we kindly request that all non-vaccinated students wear a mask while inside the studio space. Vaccinated students are not required to wear a mask (but absolutely are welcome to if desired).
VIRTUAL CLASSES: all classes are offered virtually through Zoom, as well as in person. After class has ended, the recording will be available for the duration of the week ON DEMAND on our class schedule. Sign up for an ON DEMAND class and the recording link will be sent over by email and can be accessed for 30 days.
