A little bit about Melissa

I have been sharing my journey as a chronic challenge fighter, mama and busy woman for several years. I have been practicing and reaping the benefits of yoga and meditation for years. It is a dream to share this with you.

I lost so much of my life waiting for a diagnosis, waiting for a doctor to help, waiting for research to show me what to do and then trying all the things.

Now I:

  • Have reduced my pain levels by half
  • Dramatically reduced my fatigue levels
  • Sleep 100 times better
  • Have three healthy children (all five years old and under)
  • Experience less brain fog, less anxiety, less digestive symptoms
  • Have a small business
  • Am thankful every single day

I did it the hard way. Now you can do it the easier way. There are no magic buttons, no cures and no easy fixes. But there is the research and learning of those who have gone before. Yoga and meditation are two prominent parts of my whole of life wellness plan.

My blog, Melissa vs Fibromyalgia is featured as one of Healthline’s Top 19 Fibromyalgia Blogs of 2019. My YouTube channel was also included in Feedspot’s Top 15 Fibromyalgia YouTube Channels list. I have written two books: Melissa vs Fibromyalgia: My Journey Fighting Chronic Pain, Fatigue and Insomnia and Pregnancy and Fibromyalgia. I facilitate two Facebook groups: Melissa (you) vs Chronic Pain, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia and Pregnancy and Parenting with Chronic Pain, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia. In addition I have created a free micro course and the Fibromyalgia Framework Workbook.

What can you guarantee?

Let’s be real: The level of benefit depends on the amount of effort you put in. I can give you the tools, the information and support, but I cannot do the work for you.
I am a coach and yoga teacher, not a medical professional and I can’t guarantee more than that I will make the best resources I can, come alongside you and help you do the work – and I will do this! I have created the best content possible to equip you on your journey. Because that is the most anyone can do. Day to day, it’s on you.

A note - this program is not meant to diagnose or treat you. That is between you and your medical team. My work is meant to equip you to take control of your journey so that you reach your definition of thriving as fast as possible.

Let's be clear here

I don't offer magical fixes. You have to commit to a continual practice, the benefits yoga has to offer are fantastic (and research-backed and experienced by me and many others) and you can feel great after class and experience some immediate benefits -but my biggest benefits came after several years of continual practice. And I do a lot of whole of life things to be as well as possible. You will read all about that on my blog, in my Facebook groups and on my YouTube videos. I am an open book here. Improving your symptoms takes time, effort, lots of different things and support.

Disclaimer, who's in charge?
You are! You are always in charge of your body. Please check in with your medical team. Continually check in with yourself. And ask questions. This is a course not a live class, and as such I cannot see you, except for what you share. Plus, even in a class the teacher doesn't know what you are experiencing so you are always in charge.
Do I need to check with my physical therapist/doctor?
Yes please, you do need to be cleared to exercise. It is a good idea to run the idea of doing yoga by your medical professional.
What is mindful movement?
It means continually checking in with yourself and being aware of how you are moving and how it is impacting you. You are in charge of your body. Does something feel too strong? Pull it back. Does something feel great? Feel free to hold it a little longer. Cultivating awareness of movement is really beneficial for us.
