It's so great to be back at De La Sol to see new and familiar faces!
I had the pleasure to teach at De La Sol about 2 years ago when the Waterdown Studio first opened.
I love to travel and for the past 2 years taught English and Yoga in South Korea.
I completed my 200hr Yoga Teacher Training program in 2013 with Global Yoga Shala while living in Peru.
I am trained in the Ashtanga Method - Primary Series, Vinyasa, and Yin Yoga. I am confident in subbing any of the classes offered at De La Sol.
My focus when teaching is to encourage students to develop a mindful, creative, and most importantly sustainable yoga practice.
Melissa Lam instructs the following:
Sweat, Relax, Restore | G
Enjoy this candle-lit class created to relieve stress and tension. The heat stimulates deep muscle release and detoxification of the body and the relaxed atmosphere helps to quiet the mind. This class is open to all levels, including absolute beginners and is a great introduction to the Infrared Hot room.
Gentle Hatha & Meditation | G Yoga 8
Enjoy a gentle hatha class with an exploration of meditation.
Meditation is a powerful tool to help you go deeper into your Yoga practice on and off the mat. Meditation not only has multiple physical benefits, including decreased blood pressure, decreased tension pain, and improved immune health, but it also has many mental and spiritual benefits. Meditation decreases anxiety, creates an overall sense of well-being, as well as allows you to be more grounded and connected to Source. By learning to quiet the mind, we create a deeper awareness of our consciousness. This one hour class explores various techniques of Meditation and welcomes all levels. Pranayama, energy work, visualization and other techniques will be explored.
