3 Months of Transformational Yoga & Meditation with Joanne Merlini ~ START ANY MONTH

About this event

TRANSFORMATIONAL HATHA YOGA ~ 1 Class per week for 3 months

This is a beautiful system that encourages an opening & awareness in our physical body, whilst subtly helping our mind & emotions to be calm & present.

We work with intentions, with ritual, with our Energy bodies & with Mother Earth & her cycles.

We use Asana (classical postures) for the physical releasing, sometimes a little free flow or intuitive movement, pranayama (breath control) to work on many levels, releasing, energising, calming - whatever it is we need in that moment.

There will also be elements of meditation & mindfulness, maybe a little mantra (never compulsory), encouragement, support, maybe some fun & always a long savasana & a way to consciously relax, body, mind & soul!

My teachings are open to all abilities, all I ask is an open mind & a willingness to explore what is..

Age does not determine whether you are welcome, my beautiful teachers ( as that is what I feel my students are to me) range from 20's to 80's.

I am currently in Portugal, so weather dependent, your class may also feature blue skies, some warming light & the soundtrack of birds.

We have known for magick to happen in our practices, particularly when working with intentions, so be prepared!


* 1hr Classes are held weekly and sent to you via email on YouTube either on Tuesday or Wednesday for you to practice when feels right for you.

* Classes are available on demand within 2-3 weeks of the recording & can be repeated as often as you like ( especially great if you have a favourite!).

* A 3 month Class pass is £50 which gives you 1 new class/week (4-5 classes per month).

* The subscription is for your household use.

* Each month will have a different theme as I feel into what is needed.

* All are welcome & come as you are!

More about Joanne, your guide..

Yoga started gently whispering to me in my early 20's & has been a part of my life since.

Sometimes it was the physical calling, sometimes the need for some quiet 'me time' & it was in my mid 30's that Yoga became more of a shout than a whisper.

I was self employed having built a Fashion brand from the roots up, I was travelling from Fashion weeks across Europe, to Trade shows, to Catwalks. Supplying celebrities & the Royals, but I was unsatisfied & lost in the brand I had created, stressed from self employment & not recognising who I was.

My health was being compromised & I wasn't sure what direction to turn. I had started to explore energy work with Reiki, which was encouraging some huge shifts (if a little scary at the time) & it was around then I read a quote (by the amazing Rebecca Campbell who I was fortunate to meet in Glastonbury this year) which said

'Follow what lights you up'

I knew my light was Yoga so I started following..and the more I followed, the more I was lighting up.

Yoga became my grounding, my strength & the way back to myself.

So my Yoga journey deepened & I knew I had found my calling & the source of my light.

My initial 200hr training was in Athens under the guidance of Michelle Kaminski (The Director of Yoga Alliance Europe) in the beautiful style of Transformational Yoga (which had drew me to it with its influence of Hatha, Kundalini & Raj Yoga).

A year later & I knew I wanted to deepen my teaching & train direct with the source & creator of this beautiful style & so began my love affair with India & my connection with my teacher - Sri Swami Vidyanand

I trained directly under his guidance at the SriMa School in the South of India first as a 'Master' of Transformational Yoga & Meditation & later as 'Grand Master' - Yoga Alliance International.

Swamiji is the creator of this beautiful style which stems from Integral Yoga. Integrating the body, mind & spirit to find our true centre & connection with our highest self - Encouraging the transformation to our best self & the 'Transform to Bliss'

I have trained in India for the last 3 years & my practice, as my teaching, is now greatly influenced by Sri Aurobindo, The Mother, Erkhart Tolle, Osho & having experienced life in the Ramana Ashram of Tiruvanamalai in 2019- Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharishi & the Holy Mountain of Arunachala.

My Energy work has deepened & I now incorporate my Light worker training of 2020, Reiki & EFT in to my offerings. Bringing Ritual & Ceremony to my offerings has deepened my connection even more with my centre, to Mother Earth, Spirit & the Universal Energy which connects us all.
