Why yoga and meditation?

Because these are tools, that once learnt, we can use anytime, anywhere, forever.

No waiting for someone else to help. No expiry date. No side effects.

And the kicker? Yoga and meditation also calms the central nervous system -helping us to dig into the deeper causes of a lot of conditions and helps us with many of our symptoms.

It's one relaxing bird for multiple stones.

I have been working on my health and well being for the past decade; extensively researching and trying new things. As I have improved (halved my pain and fatigue levels and dramatically improved my sleep) I have shared my journey with you. We have learnt that the central nervous system is an important factor and that focusing on holistic measures get us to our goals faster.

Yoga and meditation are two tools that help us with many outcomes - including balancing the central nervous system, helping with sleep, pain, fatigue and more.

I have been sharing that we can do these things, now I am so excited to be able to share how to do these things.

This is yoga and meditation designed by a chronic pain and fatigue fighter based on what works for her, for chronic pain and fatigue fighters.


“I think it was exceptional. I am dealing with the idea that this will never go away. I think that is my biggest struggle. Other ailments or conditions I have had in the past there has been an operation or cure. It's a bit overwhelming on my flare days.” - Fibro Fighter

“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.” - Toya

I used the chair yoga on a day where my pain was extremely high. I had already decided that my day was canceled. Going out was not gonna be possible but I did the series and about 10 mins after I noticed I felt more alert and less pain. Before I knew it I was dressed in the car and driving to my sister’s house. I ended up spending the evening there and then going to the grocery store after that. I would have never imagined being able to do a program and have such immediate results.#fibroflash @fibroflash

A little bit about Melissa

I have been sharing my journey as a chronic challenge fighter, mama and busy woman for several years.

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. I had to become an expert in my condition. Thousands of hours of research and personal trial and error later...

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. I have been practicing and reaping the benefits of yoga and meditation for years. It is a dream to share this with you.

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: Yoga for 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.

This is my dream - sharing yoga with you - is a dream come true!

What people say about Melissa's work

I think it was exceptional. I am dealing with the idea that this will never go away. I think that is my biggest struggle. Other ailments or conditions I have had in the past there has been an operation or cure. It's a bit overwhelming on my flare days.” - A fibro fighter

Thanks for your generosity in sharing all this info which can’t be found anywhere else.” - A fibro fighter

I really love everything that you have for all of us suffering from this painful life we live.” - A fibro fighter

“Love how practical these tips are and how they take into account how "life" comes into play with pacing.” Lisa

I really loved this. It is really well researched and honest. You also have a lovely calming voice.” Amanda
"It was like a reset point where Melissa helped me to focus on the goals I have by breaking it down into smaller goals." - A fibro fighter

"I am deeply thankful for all of your information and resources...I also appreciate your focus on being holistic and trying to treat the underlying cause of the condition, rather than solely the symptoms. You are an inspiration and I am so thankful to have found all of your resources." Maya

"I had a great yoga session with Melissa recently. She kindly commented on my technique and was very encouraging. I learnt a lot and had fun doing it. She's a fantastic coach and I definitely recommend her. The one on one sessions are totally worth it!" Jessie

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.

Melissa Reynolds

Melissa Reynolds is a Fibromyalgia, Meditation and Yoga Coach, mama, author, business owner and fibro fighter. It is her mission to help you thrive with chronic pain and fatigue, that you receive the tools, encouragement and hope you need in your journey.

In 2019 she got sick and tired of trying classes labeled as for "beginners" or for "when you're in pain" and finding them all out of reach. They were too long or did poses that were not suitable for her body, even as a long time practitioner. So, with three children five years old and under she trained to be a yoga teacher. She trained so that she could share these tools that have helped her so much. The mindful movement, the breathing and the meditation. She is so excited to be able to share them with you now.


Frequently Asked Questions


How long do I have access to the programme?
This is a membership - you will have access as soon as you enroll and for as long as you are a member.
What if I am unhappy with the programme?
This is designed with you in mind, if you genuinely give it a go, I believe you will see benefit. If you feel that it is not for you within the first 30 days you can request a refund. No harm, no foul. But I do implore you to really give it a go - I really believe you will see benefit if you give it a real go.
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. You are always expected to research (including checking in with your medical team) and carefully consider anything you would like to try.
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.
So what do I get?
Yoga, meditation and support specifically for you, designed by a chronic pain and fatigue fighter. The tools and support to build your own toolkit so that you can be as well as possible with chronic pain and fatigue.
Do I need any special props or tools?
You will benefit from having a yoga mat (no need to be fancy here). You may also like to purchase inexpensive items such as a yoga block and strap (available from many department stores/sports stores). But I make use of things around the home like cushions/bolsters/pillows. You may also end up with ideas to consider from Melissa or other students and that is totally at your discretion.
Will yoga cure me?
Nope. There is no cure yet. But yoga will help you create a toolkit of things you can do for yourself anytime, anywhere. Self-efficacy is actually research proven to improve our outcomes!
There is a lot here, where do I start?
I'd recommend beginning with the Beginners Journey Toolkit. But you can dig in and out of whatever you like. The toolkits and series are compilations that help you to hone in on the area you want to focus on right now. The main library is also a great way to dip into what you need on any given day. A breathing practice? A single pose to help stretch out that neck? A gentle restorative class? You are welcome to send me an email if you are unsure.
I am pregnant (or planning to be) can I join?
Yes! If you are cleared for exercise by your medical team you are welcome to do yoga. There are some guidelines for you - such as no closed twists, no strong back bends and no lying flat on your back after a certain time but we work around this. This is not specifically prenatal yoga, simply yoga that is friendly for people with fibromyalgia that can be adapted for pregnancy designed by a yoga teacher who has been pregnant three times and practiced during all three pregnancies. It is my dream to work on a prenatal yoga for fibromyalgia program but I would like to do some specific prenatal yoga training. You are welcome to ask me questions as we go.
I don't have fibromyalgia, can I join?
This is a place where you will find pain-, fatigue- and brain- fog friendly classes. You are welcome here - this isn't the place for diagnosis or treatment - this is a place for mindful, restful movement. If this resonates with you and you are cleared to do yoga, you are welcome.
