“You speak about this program being more than just yoga..What does that mean? What are we going to do throughout the 6 months exactly?”
The Yoga’licious program is like something you have never experienced before. It’s a unique combination of deep nourishment and self care, ritual, yoga, very sacred inner discovery and exploration, sisterhood, retreat time, and inner transformation around how to re-align to your own natural rhythms (mind-body-heart-soul), and self-loving practices that bring you back into connection with your essential self… the woman inside who has always been there, but maybe has gotten covered up by old scripts, narratives, and the fast pace of life.
In other words, you will be deeply transformed by the time we are done.
You will love yourself in ways you never imagined.
You will feel more comfortable in your body and more empowered in your voice.
You will leave our time together a different woman.
“I barely even take 5 minutes for myself these days, and you want me to dedicate 6 months to myself? Is that even possible?”
I receive this question a lot, and I get it. As women we are conditioned in many ways to think that it’s selfish to take 5 minutes – let alone 6 months – to prioritize the attention we give to ourselves.
But the truth is that our sanity, our well being, and our vitality depends on our willingness to take time and space for ourselves to regularly unplug and just BE. It serves us, our families, our work, our relationships, and so much more. We need to regularly step out of our lives to gain perspective and be able to see through fresh eyes.
Here’s what a previous participant shared with me after going through the Yoga’licious program: “There is always so much to get done. That will never change. But taking the time for “me”, above anything or anyone else, not only sustains me, but nourishes me. I’ve learned this intentional time is now required for my health and well-being.” – Courtney
You can’t pour from an empty cup. This program will support you in filling up your cup, and in return my sense is you will become more efficient with how you spend your time. I’ve seen time and time again women opening up space and time freedom by investing in themselves in this way.
This 6 month program sounds Ah-mazing… it must cost a fortune! I’m worried I won’t be able to afford it (and if I can, I’ll probably feel guilty investing in myself).
I so get the money question and how real it can feel. It’s totally normal to wonder about that. We will talk cost on our call together, and I will answer your questions around this.
What I have seen time and time again with clients who have been on the fence about the financial commitment, is that once they actually make the commitment, so much more abundance opens up in ways they didn’t even know was possible… the money was always there as they trusted in this commitment to themselves.
Choosing to invest in yourself in this particular way has a HUGE positive return on your aliveness, well being, and overall health.
What if I don’t know anyone? I feel scared I won’t belong or fit in. What if everyone knows each other and I feel left out?
This is also one of the most frequently asked questions and biggest fears from the women I serve when I lead programs and circles.
I don’t want to invalidate this very real fear for you if it’s coming up, and here’s what I can share about my intention and commitment to you and the other women who choose to step into this program:
From the moment we begin our sacred journey together my intention is to create a really safe and sacred space for you to be yourself, bring all parts of you to the room, and create a space of authenticity and sisterhood. While I can’t guarantee that these feelings won’t show up for you, my intention is to create a context of collaboration, sharing, inclusion, and safety. Time and time again the women who choose to say yes themselves and join my programs share with me how grateful they are for the space & community I create where they feel safe, seen, and like they belong in ways they hadn’t experienced much in the past.
Here’s a thought about this from one of the women who has attended my retreats: “After attending Melanie’s event, I knew that I had found my tribe: Melanie was speaking my language.” -Genna
Everything about this program is speaking to me, but I don’t really have a yoga practice. Can I still take these next steps?
Short answer: OF COURSE! This program is for ALL yoga experiences, levels, and bodies. The way I approach sharing and leading the yoga practice is to invite you to tune into your own body and body wisdom. While I will be actively sharing and guiding you through the movements, I will just as much be inviting you to tune-in, listen to your body, and create your own experience of what yoga is for you. If that means you need to modify and rest, all is welcome.
