One on One Private Yoga Classes in the Yarra Valley
Private one on one yoga classes are perfect
for one on one time with a yoga teacher
to get that personal tuition for your level and health.
A private session also means you get private instructions
on proper alignment, you can also go over the basics,
or work at more complex yoga poses in order to
improve your practice at a slower pace.
Sessions available from 60 mins to 90 mins.
Skype private yoga sessions are also available.
I will be offering Yoga, mediation and breathwork classes
and tuition, both online and from my private space at
The Honeybee Temple

wellbeing and empowerment for the people.

Melissa Artemis Shemanna: Yoga Bio
Melissa has a way of bringing students into the stillness within, like an envelope of calm in the room where one can relate to their inner peaceful nature. A very nurturing and friendly presence, Melissa leads by example with her way of teaching that encourages all who grace the space to delve into their own wisdom and compassion and to explore a range of Yogic practice and philosophy.
Her classes can range from supportive and constructive beginners Hatha Yoga, to a more dynamic (but not too fast-paced!) Vinyasa practice that she calls;
Yogic Breath work, Pranayama; is a central aspect of Melissa's offering, focusing on the breath in each class and each posture. A range of pranayama exercises are taught to the students, which directly helps the nervous system, brain waves and is a powerful tonic for one's overall state of being.
Growing up with learning Kriya Yoga/breathwork/mediation practice and philosophy from an early age, this provided a deep experience that was embedded into the fabric of her being. Melissa completed her 1000Hrs Advanced Diploma of Yoga Teaching with The Australian Yoga Academy in 2011.
Over her life, she has sought out and learned from the lineages of various Yoga and Tantric traditions including; Iyengar Yoga, Kriya Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Satyananda Yoga, ParaTan Mantra and Nada yoga/Tantra, KaliMa Tantra, Rigpa/Mahayana/Vajrayana Buddhist teachings and meditation training.
"Yoga is a rite, a ceremony, a method, a sadhana. It is ancient, scientific, and time tested means to harmonize naturally occurring energies within the human framework so that they resonate with the more subtle underlying energies. It is a method of refining one's physical, emotional, mental and psychic forces so that individual awareness can penetrate the depths of ones true nature. Furthermore, it systematically sharpens the point of individual being within the collective whole."
