Research is showing us that yoga can help us to reduce pain, increase energy, improve sleep, decrease anxiety, help us breath better and calm the central nervous system – I teach you these tools so that you can utilize them wherever and whenever you need them.

Yoga for the Chronic Life is yoga especially designed for chronic symptom thrivers by a chronic symptom thriver.

Melissa Reynolds is a 200 hour certified yoga teacher, with a restorative teacher certification, thousands of hours of personal practice and research specializing in taking the tools of yoga and using them for chronic pain, fatigue and insomnia.

Melissa is passionate about helping you to make simple, sustainable changes to achieve your best life. She has been supporting people with chronic pain, fatigue, insomnia and more for several years through her blog, Facebook support groups, two books, workbook, yoga programs and more.

“I’m enjoying the idea that I can learn how to adapt yoga to fit in with my life of pain and fatigue. This is definitely gonna be a permanent part of my tool kit.”

Private Yoga/Coaching

45 minute virtual sessions to tailor yoga to your needs, with a teacher who has been using yoga for her chronic illness journey for nearly a decade. I don’t pretzel, I modify the tools of yoga to what I need at the time – and offer the same to you.

You will need to be able to set up a camera/webcam/phone on a stand so that I can see you practicing.

You do need to check in with your medical professional to ensure you are able to do yoga. 

Team members from the  Yoga and Meditation for the Chronic Life studio get 25% off. 

All sessions include a write up of your program and email follow up.

I only have very limited spaces for private clients, so arrange your complimentary consultation quickly.
