Do you want a robust symptom management toolkit?

2:35 how can I offer this program?
3:10 the monthly program (container)
If you're serious about making progress in 2023 on building a robust symptom management toolkit then I'd love to invite you to join this very special program.
Its a special blend of group support, accessible yoga and symptom management principles backed by my years of research and personal experience. In addition to my yoga and coaching training.
Because I want you to have tools in your toolkit that you can use yourself whenever you need, wherever you are.
Yoga can't cure you but it CAN (four reasons to join us):
>Give you practical tools you can use yourself (self-efficacy is linked to better outcomes for us)
>Gentle movement (lack of movement is linked to lower life expectancy and other health issues)
>Supportive team (no isolation here, even if you can't leave the house right now)
>Tackle the central nervous system overdrive which leads to depression, anxiety, insomnia, pain amplification and more.
How do I build my toolkit?
Each month you will be on a guided journey. You will receive a container with four accessible yoga classes:
- Gentle movement
- Restorative class
- Breathing or other self-care practice
All designed to help you breathe, stretch and rest well.
Each month you retain access to the previous containers, building a library of options.
In addition to this we will learn some key concepts to managing chronic pain and fatigue well:
- How to assess your baseline
- Tracking your symptoms,
- Create symptom management plans
- Learn about pacing
- and more.
These are in easy to understand booklets with worksheets and templates to guide you.
You will also receive access to our exclusive members’ group.
- Supportive team.
- You can ask me questions
- Extra information and resources.
- You also get a front row look at new resources I create.
PLUS you get bonus access to:
The Foundations of Yoga for Chronic Pain and Fatigue course
The Self-Care Challenge
Valued at over $199
You can dig into these at any time in your term as a member.
This is a hybridized program designed to meet you where you are.
Just want the yoga? No problem.
Want extra support in the group? Join in.
Need the workbooklets to create your symptom management plans? You can access it anytime from month two.
Level up or down as you like each month.
What's in Melissa's Toolkit
I want you to have tools that can help you manage your symptoms every day
Hi, I’m Melissa!
I make adaptable, accessible yoga and combine that with pain and fatigue management principles.
We need different options (bed, chair, floor), varying class lengths, sometimes we just need an efficient nap (Yoga Nidra).
Because I don't want you to spend as long as I did with no help and no tools.
The side benefits of the right yoga for us is nothing to turn our noses up at either. Good yoga can help:
• calm the autonomic nervous system
• improve sleep
• reduce fatigue
• reduce pain
• increase physical capacity
• decrease myofascial pain
• lessen anxiety
• reduce depression
• induce relaxation
• bring a mindfulness of movement
• help with awareness of proper alignment
I LOVE knowing that I can induce deep rest, alleviate muscle tension, gently release my neck (a 24/7 issue to manage) MYSELF. It is profoundly satisfying to have tools, know when I need them and be free to use them almost anytime, anywhere.
What my students say
“I like being able to go at my own pace. Each video is very well explained so I am able to follow easily. I especially like that you included bedtime yoga.” – Shelly
"I love yoga with Melissa Reynolds it has helped me feel more relaxed, less cramping, less pain." - Danny from Health-Hats.com
“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
"For the first time I'm in a yoga class that I feel like I'm actually going to get it...I really can do this and I love how it feels." -Meshea from mesheacrysup.com
"You have made it possible for people with multiple issues to be able to get benefits of yoga without the stress and pain." - Mimi Diz
You have to do the work
This program is right for you if you are willing to take these tools and use them.
The only thing I ask you to do is to commit to practicing. Even for just 10 minutes a day.
I have designed this to be as easy as possible for you to navigate. Each month you will receive access to a new module with a gentle movement class, restorative (restful) class, meditation and a breathing and/or self-care printable/practice. On your first scheduled practice day (that you have committed to) choose one of the new practices to try. It's nice to get through all of the new practices over the month so that you can see what suits your body and what your favourites are. This way you will know what to come back to.
In my opinion, the most important practices are the Yoga Nidra guided meditations. If you do nothing else for the next 3,6 or 12 months, let it be a consistent Yoga Nidra practice. It will help you gain profound rest in the moment and help to balance your central nervous system. Something that is good for everyone living in this hectic world. But especially for people with chronic pain and fatigue.
In addition to the yoga, you will start tracking your symptoms, create a symptom management plan, flare plans, learn about pacing and more.
What would you pay to improve your sleep, even a little? To experience true relaxation, for even a moment? To create a toolkit of things you can do for yourself whenever you need?
To be able to enjoy movement again and avoid flares when doing it?
