Welcome to Melissa Carvalho Yoga! 

I am so glad you are here. Yoga is a very transformational experience and you are in for a real treat. I will meet you where you are and offer plenty of modifications- no judgment and no competition. Classes are suitable for all levels- first time on a mat or you have been practicing for many years. I offer both in- person yoga and online yoga classes.

What is yoga? I like to define yoga as transcendence of the mind to realize our “true self” or “highest self.” This experience of pure consciousness is our true nature. 


My Style and Philosophy

My classes can best be described as a heart centered slow flow, that will recharge your spirit, while offering a healthy balance of movement and pause. I believe that that an authentic yoga practice does not focus on the physical poses, but rather it is a tool that allows us to pay attention to our body, mind, and emotions the way a musician pays attention to the pauses between their notes. We learn to tune into the in- the- moment guidance that we receive from our own inner wisdom, when we are allowed moments of pause. You will leave feeling mentally, physically, emotionally, energetically, and spiritually balanced, which is imperative for stress management, and growth as a human being. 

The class flow is inspired by my lifelong passion for dance. Class is enriched with inspirational quotes and a generous meditation and rest at the end. 


I am here to meet all of your stress management and mindfulness needs, whether this is your first time on your mat, or you have been practicing for many years. 


Nature

I believe that to experience the fullest potential of yoga, it is wonderful  to be able to practice in nature. For this reason I take the show on the road during the warmer months and have events at local parks and an outdoor yurt nestled in nature. Be sure to check out our local yoga in Deerfield Park in Greenville, RI! Class is an experience built around community and beautiful landscape. I hope you can join me to try it for yourself.

See What Others Have Shared

Melissa is a very good teacher of all levels and has the patience, knowledge and creativity to make every class doable for even a beginner.   She is always flexible, offering options and alternatives to those who can do more as well as anyone having difficultly, moving at a good pace for all.  Melissa has a good sense of humor and classes are always fun.  I also like the music and poetry as well as the lavender infused reiki she often does at meditation.   I aspire to also gaining some of the serenity she seems to have through yoga and meditation.

Kathy Winsor

I honor the place in you in which the entire universe resides. I honor the place in you that is of love, of light, of truth and of peace. And when you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me.. we are all one. 

May you remember who you are. May you remember why you came. May you remember you have choice in all you do. May you remember all the answers lie within you.

Never let anything or anyone dim your light. Keep shining, and in time they will shine brighter too!​​

Love & Light, 

Melissa
