Melanie Cooper 7-14 May 2016
Melanie Cooper’s holiday has now passed. Here is her 2016 holiday review. Happily Mel will return to Yoga Rocks in May 2017 – maybe see you there!
Currently Melanie has relocated to Bristol leaving behind morning Mysore classes that she taught at London’s Life Centre for many years. She also offers teacher training in Goa for Brahmani Yoga as well as in London jointly with Norman Blair. Having recently published her book ‘Teaching Yoga, Adjusting Asana’, guests can feel confident that their practice will head in the right direction. We love her ability to soften Ashtanga for beginners while having the experience to take those who are ready into a deeper practice.
On the retreat Melanie leads Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga mornings with the option of either a self practice Mysore style and/or a led class for those who prefer a bit more structure. Emil Lime assists Mel, giving extra support throughout. Absolute beginners and experienced yogis alike will benefit from their intelligent adjustments and clear teaching.
Balancing the morning practice are some Yin Yoga afternoons – a slow and deep form of yoga, melting into each pose. Mel incorporates Pranayama and Yoga Nidra into the afternoon classes. There is also optional evening chanting under the stars.
