Teacher profile

Full Name: 

Melissa Softley

About: 

I initially undertook Womens Yoga Therapy trainings with Uma to add another string to my bow as a yoga teacher. What happened during the course of this training was a profound shift in my connection to myself as a woman. I realised that this training was for me. To honour and reconnect with what being a woman was to me. A place to shed my tears, sing and dance and laugh until my belly hurt. All of this with my sisters in yoga and within this context of yoga for women. I take all that I have learnt from this profound experience into my classes, workshops and into my one to one sessions. I have trainings in yoga anatomy, physiology and therapeutics, pranayama, meditation, Yoga Nidra, Yoga for mental health and in my formative yogini years took regular trainings with Angela Farmer. Most recently I have been exploring somatics and embodied anatomy led by an interest in exploring developmental movement patterns, authentic movement and a concious, respectful and non judgemental holding of individual space for healing. The heart of my yoga is my practice, learning and teaching of a Scaravelli Inspired yoga, which is in definition a very feminine yoga practice as it offers a softening of our outer form and an alert and responsive awakening of the inner body.
