With a background in arts and photography, Melanie began her spiritual journey at the age of 17 through various healing practices like meditation, mantra, tantra, shamanic work and reiki. She thoroughly explored ashram life in India which gave her a deeper understanding of yogic philosophy and way of life, of the connection between body, mind and soul and the path to master the union within. After studying Ayurveda medicine in Regents College London, sound tantra, mantra and meditation, she completed her 200 hours YTT with Ravvi’s School of Yoga in July 2019 certified with UK Yoga Alliance. With her natural curiosity, compassion and humor, she has recently started her teaching practice in yoga and healing offering a thoughtful and creative approach to the body, mind and soul. She is successfully running her own hospitality business with a completed yoga and meditation retreats within a beautifully self-renovated Wester Auchraw Croft, in Scotland.
Maria has recently completed her PhD in linguistics at Sorbonne University and has been working for various art institutions in Paris as well as curated several group and solo shows all over Europe. As a trained ballet dancer, her journey into yoga started through asanas, relaxation as well as breathing techniques that allowed her to find balance within body and mind. With a strong interest towards well-being and yogic approach to life and environment whether it is natural or social, she decided to do her first 200 hours YTT with Ravvi’s School of Yoga that she successfully completed in July 2019. She has recently started to give karma yoga classes creating various dynamic and restorative flow sequences for beginners as well as advanced practitioners, spreading and sharing her love for yoga.
Dos Disk Therapy
Shamanic Journey work.
The “DOS 2012 SRI YANTRA DISKS” has shown us that they go directly to the source, working to balance the system with speed, depth, and effectiveness. These units seem to have a heightened vibration that resonates with the higher vibrational forces that are currently flooding the planet with a new and different form of light. As those energies call everything in Creation to rise up and attune to that which will allow us to transmute any pattern or issue that keeps us in the dark, we have a feeling the “DOS Sri Yantra 2012 Therapeutic Units” will serve to enhance and accelerate that process on every level.
These 2012 devices incorporate the power of the Sri Yantra to infuse the system with frequencies that resonate at the deepest possible physical and subtle energy levels with 52+2 Layers of Information. These models have other layers with the Flower of Life in many scales, Metatron’s cube, golden mean spirals with the Gayatri etc.
1 Hr session £50.
The Liniage that I am connected through and to is with Stephen Mullhulland Lendrick Lodge UK, Peggy Dillon Sundoor USA, Barbara Ingerman USA and Swami Keshavadas India.

Sessions available upon request.
I am a trained healer first with the National Federation of spiritual healers based in Grover Square London, I starting at the age of 23 and in 2014 with Victoria Mullholland of Lendrick Lodge where I trained in Raiki. In 2019 I am being trained in body electronics and part of that was receiving the 4th initiation in Raiki with Peter Aziz in Tethatu shamanic healing.
Reiki is a personal interaction with you, the therapist and the Reiki. No two sessions are ever the same, because we are constantly changing energetically. Reiki works on many levels when we receive a session we are simultaneously receiving physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing. We may or may not be aware of what changes are actually taking place. We don’t need to; the reiki takes care of it.
As a healer now for many years, I bring in this modality combining it with Dos Disk therapy, Becalm balls or my shamanic work, I have trained in EFT, Journey work with Brandon Bays, Living in the heart and living in the illuminated heart by Drunvello Melkederdeck and what I have discovered is that 'only love' heals.
This combined with you bringing your intension to let go and heal that which is showing up now & with my intension along side yours is handed over to spirit which goes to work with the divine. This is who and what we are, beautiful radiant beings and these modalities on offer bring this opportunity to bring your fragmented soul or power parts home.
