Whether you are an avid gardener or have laced up those running shoes, the longer days have us aching to be outside... and literally aching the next morning, right?
Why not prepare your body for those afternoons spent digging in the dirt, or that early morning run?
Use this simple recipe to feel your best this season:
Your whole body benefits, you feel better, you move better, and you'll be ready to get out and enjoy Spring and all it has to offer!
I will be on vacation April 30 - May 21
(be on the lookout for "pop-up" classes)
NEW CLASSES ~ NEW MOVES
Beginning the last week of MAY, I'll be making some changes to the weekly class schedule and I'd love your input!
I'll be adding more MELT Performance moves to both Advanced and Intermediate Classes.
I'll also host "Intro to MELT" and "Intro to MELT Performance" workshops.
I'll be starting a new beginner's series as well.
Is there something you'd like to see in the weekly lineup?

Did you know you can buy class punch cards on my website?
Remember, I stock all sorts of MELT equipment so you can start MELTing right away (plus I save you some shipping and handling charges)! I can do contactless porch deliveries in the area to bring MELT right to your doorstep! By purchasing your equipment through me, you are having a direct impact on my small business. You can link directly to my website store HERE.
I also have a page on the MELT Method site, where you can find MELT on Demand, our streaming service, as well as MELT products for shipments out of the area.
"If you try to MELT without using the proper equipment, you simply aren't MELTing. It's like wanting to make Pinot Noir using Chardonnay grapes. You'll still make wine, but you won't get the results you were expecting."
A whole lot of things have changed dramatically since my last newsletter, and yet, thankfully, gracefully, there are things that remain the same. By the time you receive this in your inbox, it will have been announced to the public that Breathe Healing Arts Center in Newberg has permanently closed it's doors. I've known this for a little while, and have been quietly grieving this loss. It was never "just the space where my classes were held", Breathe was so much more than that. I really felt at home there, and there was no denying the good vibes, good friends, and good community. Sadly, I know that this won't be the only business that doesn't make it through this pandemic. Fortunately, I also know that the owner of Breathe is at peace with this decision. If you know anything about me, you know I'm a glass-half-full kind of person - actually I'm a "glass is refillable" kind of person! So I am confident that something new awaits and I will land where I am supposed to land. I'm looking forward to that Open Window.
Why your MELT practice is so important right now...
Remember the kitchen sponge analogy? When we have areas of dehydration in our connective tissue (and we all do), our tissue behaves like a dried up kitchen sponge. It simply doesn't move well and can't do it's job efficiently. More importantly, dehydrated connective tissue holds on to stress ~ literally. And these are stressful times... perhaps the most stressful time you've ever been through. You may not be working the way you were, you may not be moving the way you are used to, you may not be sleeping well ~ let's face it, for most of us, our lives have changed dramatically in a very short time. Your daily MELT practice will move that stress where it belongs - out of your body! It will calm your nervous system by returning it's environment to a more fluid state. Connective tissue is our largest living system, and when we work to keep it healthy, our whole body reaps the benefits.
MELT Classes will remain online
for the month of May
Each week I'll be sending you an email with a list of Zoom offerings for the week. Keep your eyes out for some special offers and beginning classes too! Is there something you'd like me to offer that isn't on the calendar yet? Hit reply and let me know your ideas! Remember, I stock all sorts of MELT equipment so you can start MELTing right away (plus I save you some shipping and handling charges)! I'm doing porch deliveries in the area to bring MELT right to your doorstep! By purchasing your equipment through me, you are truly helping me stay afloat during this time. I've got an online store too, if you're interested in our streaming service, MELT on Demand, or you live outside the area. You can link directly to my store HERE.
As I shared with a new client recently: "If you try to MELT without using the proper equipment, you simply aren't MELTing. It's like wanting to make Pinot Noir using Chardonnay grapes. You'll still make wine, but you won't get the results you were expecting."
Wow - Where did June go? It's hard to believe that it's been a month since we returned home from our trip. We truly had the time of our lives and are so very grateful for a vacation without many hiccups or issues. It was our first trip to Italy and France, and it lived up to and exceeded every expectation.
I have re-acclimated back to daily life and am focusing on summer schedules, specials and workshops. For those of you who don't follow me on social media - here are a few pics from our travels.
