Interesting name, I know. Yogic philosophy teaches more that just asana (the physical shapes we can make with our body), it offers a lifestyle guide for wholeness. Bhramari is Sanskrit for "honey bee" and is a breath practice that helps to recalibrate the nervous system, encouraging the body's natural healing abilities from within. Want to give it a try? Take a deep breath in through the nose, and a gentle hum throughout the exhale. Happy healing.

Hi there, I'm Melissa
I am so glad you are here.
Welcome to my practice.
It is my passion to blend ancient philosophies of yoga and wellness with modern anatomy, neurobiology, and trauma research. As we journey thorough life, our life imprints upon us. This happens naturally within the body via the senses and encodes into the body's memory, the nervous system. This sometimes creates habitual holding patterns in the body and/or distorted views of reality based of prior experiences; especially if they were overwhelming, scary, or unpleasant. This is a normal reaction to an abnormal situation. By observing the stories we are telling ourselves to be true, we can create change in how we perceive the world around us. Releasing defenses that no longer serve our growth or current reality.
