Individualized yoga practices to improve health and well-being.
I’m Melissa Russell. Evolve Yoga Therapy is inspired by my belief that everyone has the power to evolve throughout their lives. The tools I offer include movement, breath, meditation and lifestyle modifications to help you find better health and well-being physically, mentally, and spiritually. My studio is located in Chapel Hill, NC. I see clients one on one in person and via Zoom.
Do you feel like you are disconnected from yourself and the world around you? Are you experiencing physical pain due to an old injury, structural imbalance, or unknown cause? Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, and/or a recent loss? Are you living with a chronic autoimmune condition or long covid?
Yoga therapy offers tools to help with these experiences and a number of others. By moving, breathing, meditating, and thinking in certain ways you can find better health and well-being.
Meditation is an important practice as it helps us to be clearer in our thinking, less irritable when things don’t go our way, more present with the people around us, and more focused on the tasks that are critical in our everyday lives. It also puts the brain into a state of healing which can help with a number of chronic illnesses as well as insomnia.
My goal is to help you find a meditation technique that feels right to you and fits into your daily schedule. I use a number of different techniques including iRest – a scientifically backed practice used my thousands of people worldwide.
