Autumn Equinox Live & Free Online Healing


Live & Free Light Healing Meditation
on Facebook
Autumn Equinox 22nd September 7pm

I will be going ‘live’ on the Mellulah Therapy and Yoga Retreats page Tuesday 22nd in the evening at 7.00pm GMT. Please like the page to be notified and reminded to join!

The Autumn Equinox in the Uk is at 14.30pm on the 22nd

This healing meditation will help you to assimilate the energy of moving into Autumn, a time to reflect, consider and harvest the seeds sown at Spring Equinox on the 20th March, just after lockdown began the UK.
So much as happened in the past 6 months, our lives have been turned upside down, we adapted, we grew, we evolved, we are learning and we are awakening together as one.
The journey from Equinox to Winter Solstice in December is one of moving into the Darkness, the shadow, time to go deeper i and do the inner work that is needed now.

What have you learnt the past 6 months?
Are you and others around waking up?
Does the world seem like a different place than before?
Are you feeling the need to heal and soothe?
Do you need to remember to stay in the Light, in the Love and full of Hope for our planet and all humanity?

Join me for this live healing, to work together to bring about a new world vision full of hope, peace and joy XX

This Live session will guide you into a deep healing meditation where I will send beautiful energy to you as well as guiding you into setting clear intentions for this powerful time, both individually and collectively we must work together to focus our awareness on Peace, Love, Light, Healing, Equality, Justice & Transformation. The time has come for us all to work in bringing about this Great Change.
Bring Yourself, your Light, your Spirit, your Presence and your Heart

I will also play you my Crystal Singing Bowl and lull you into rest to finish xx

I send healing daily to everyone in the private FB group
Mellulah Angelic Light Daily Distant Healing Group
Please join the group if you’d like to.

I’d love you to join this Live session and sit with me if you can, the session will be available to watch anytime afterwards too.
Love Saira xx

Ruth Jones enjoying yoga with Saira Francis

 Ruth Jones Yoga with Mellulah!

The lovely Ruth Jones, star of Gavin and Stacey and Stella,was on the BBC One Show last night, sharing how my yoga videos kept her going through lockdown!
Ruth has been joining my live streams and loving the YouTube videos and I feel so blessed that she gave me a mention last night. She was regularly doing the 20 minute yoga videos I’ve shared on my Youtube Channel and is now doing the zooms too.
Ruth was on the show, promoting her new book ‘Us Three’  which is available through Penguin and I look forward to having a read soon!
It was lovely hearing my name mentioned on prime time tv in front of millions of viewers, and lovely having Ruth and all of you, enjoy my yoga online.
Thanks Ruth, lots of love! xxx
Enjoy my yoga too!

Mellulah Wins Yet More Tourism Awards!!

Its been another incredible year for Mellulah at the Tourism Awards here in the South West of England.

We have won GOLD AGAIN in Dorset! That is the 3rd year running and we are delighted, over the moon in fact!
We then got through to the Finals at the South West Tourism Awards which really is the shining lights of this very competitive part of the Uk and won BRONZE again after winning BRONZE last year and a lovely glittery SILVER the year before that!

Here are some pics of us all glammed up and out of our yoga pants for the awards night at Exeter Cathedral which was wonderful. Some of you will recognise my daughters Betsy and Mimi who help out on the retreats and who joined for the special night which felt perfect.

I’ve decided we won’t be entering the awards again this year, its time for a break! I really think a hat trick is enough for me for a while and I can not thank the Tourism Awards team for giving us the recognition they have over these past miraculous years. I might enter again in a few years but for now I have quite a collection of awards in my house and some wonderful memories of excitement and pure delight to keep us going a while. Watch this space  maybe in 2021 when we might have another go! XxX


Dorset Yoga Class Changes January 2020

Yoga Class Changes January 2020

Its the start of a new year and there are a lot of changes happening for me with my work as I move away from the barn in Hazelbury Bryan, Dorset and find new venues both for yoga classes and day retreats. I’m excited about sharing new spaces with you and really feel that I am being led to get right into the heart of our local communities. Its been lovely at the barn, but I feel it will be beneficial to share yoga in places that can be easily accessed by all and to bring yoga to people who perhaps might not otherwise have found it and all its wonderful benefits!
Therefore I am moving super soon! I have decided it is the right thing to move straight away so from next week Monday nights and Tuesday mornings will be at new venues:

Mondays Mixed Ability 7-8.30pm The Bow Room, The Exchange, Sturminster Newton DT10 1FH
Tuesday Mixed Ability 9.30-11am Hazelbury Bryan Village Hall, DT10 2DP.

As a way for me to THANK YOU for your ongoing commitment and loyalty to my yoga I am offering  Monday 20th & Tuesday 21st Jan to all existing yogis for FREE! This is my way of showing my gratitude to you during this change that I know may feel a shame for many of you xxx
Please still book your classes as usual, I will then refund all credits (unless you are a new yogi using your already free first credit)

If this changes are inconvenient for you then Please let me know and I will refund you fully for any class packs bought.

When we surrender to the flow of the universe and trust in her divine plan, all will be well.

Love and Blessings to you all, Saira xxx

We did it again! Gold for Mellulah WOOHOO!

Spa Wellbeing Dorset

Mellulah won Gold again for Spa and Wellbeing in Dorset.

It was a wonderful night at the Dorset Tourism Awards last week. Held at the Lighthouse in Poole,  over 200 guests enjoyed a delicious 3 course meal, entertainment and then lots of cheers as awards were presented and businesses were recognised for their contribution to tourism in the county.

It was great to see so many really small business being awarded for their achievements, lots of one man bands and family run organisations. The awards are all about recognising the little guys, not one big corporation or large chain to be seen! This was the second year that Mellulah made it to the final and Saira went along with her husband Stoo for a night of serious nerves and extreme delight!

Mellulah won Gold for the second year running in the Spa and Wellbeing Experience category.  We also won Silver at the regional South West awards in February 2018 so we are on a roll it seems.

Judges for the Dorset Tourism Awards said their day with Mellulah was ‘an inspirational visit, we can not wait to go back’. As an entrant of the tourism awards, candidates go through a rigorous process. Last year Mellulah was invited to enter and we decided to go for it again this year. Firstly a lengthy entry form is filled out. Saira spent a few long days during the June heatwave, sat in the garden under a tree writing, deeply from the heart about the ethos of Mellulah and what it is all about.

As a very small spa and wellbeing business run by Saira and a team who come in to help on retreats when needed, Mellulah is all about LOVE. Saira didn’t hold back when she shared this ethos with judges, when asked why customers keep coming back to Mellulah, she wrote “

“Each guest who comes to me is important in a way that goes beyond my business mind. I have a real passion for the work I do and simply love the life I have created around Mellulah. This energy of passion comes across to all my yogis and clients, they all know I really care about their wellbeing and want to bring true and lasting change into their lives. I believe that my own experiences in life have taught me how best to help others, I have worked through some very difficult issues in my life with the practice of yoga, meditation, healing and participating in retreats. This makes me authentic in everything I do, I am not reading from a text book, I am a living example of how these can help a person to turn their life around. I believe that I empathise hugely with the people who come to me and they feel this, they feel loved, cared for and nurtured and I trust that by giving them tools to help them find harmony, they can do the same as I have and deeply heal.”

Saira shared her own story within the entry form, how she went from a young drug addict falling into abusive relationships to an older, happy, fulfilled yogi, it seems she won the hearts of the judges as well as those of many of her loyal retreat guests and therapy clients.

After the entry form has been read by judges, a short list is made and ‘mystery shoppers’ are sent out to check businesses in secret. Ours was sent during our August retreat at Middle Piccadilly near Sherborne. We found out at the end of a fabulous weekend that we had been shopped!  Judges also go through all social media presence, read every review and all press attention. Then a long wait until October to find out if we made the finals and a heart pumping end to the process at awards night.

Saira was over the moon to win Gold again for herself and the wonderful spa and wellbeing team in Dorset who work so hard to support her on retreats. Its also great news for all the guests who will hopefully feel even more confident about joining a retreat, a yoga class or coming for a therapy appointment with Saira. The best way to find out why Saira keeps winning is to come along and find out for yourself!

Mellulah wins Silver in SW Tourism Awards

Dorset based Spa & Wellbeing business wins Silver in SW Tourism Awards

Mellulah wins Silver at the SW Tourism Awards - Spa & Wellbeing Experience Dorset based Yoga teacher and Holistic Therapist Saira Francis had reason to celebrate on Thursday night (1 February 2018) when her business Mellulah Therapy & Yoga scooped the South West Tourism Silver Award in the Spa & Wellbeing Experience of the Year at the Riviera International Conference Centre, Torquay.

Mellulah, which offers retreats across Rural Dorset, was the only Dorset business in this category to have reached the SW Tourism Awards final and was up against some very well-known names in the Spa and Wellbeing sector.

Running since 2011, this approachable business won Gold in the 2017/18 Dorset Tourism Awards, a particularly impressive feat as it was the first time Mellulah had ever entered the Awards. The judges made a special mention of Saira’s ability to create a warm and inviting environment for retreaters to relax and let go of daily stresses.

They were really impressed to discover Saira’s “holistic and traditional approach to yoga that caters for all abilities alongside healthy, locally sourced vegan meals and blissful meditation and relaxation, in beautiful quiet settings around North and West Dorset.”

With five businesses vying for Gold, Silver and Bronze in this popular sector, including Peter de Savary’s Cary Arms in Devon and last year’s Silver winners Lucknam Park Hotel & Spa in Wiltshire, Saira said she was honoured to be among such well-known names.

 The judges will have examined all aspects of what’s on offer, and with glowing testimonials from clients like Catty Lowsley-Williams from Blandford who commented, “Mellulah yoga is some of the best yoga I have found anywhere. I have been lucky enough to practice yoga all over the world with some wonderful yogis. Saira is unquestionably one of the best teachers I’ve encountered. She has huge integrity and humility. How lucky I am to have found her,” there is no doubting that Mellulah provides a fantastic customer experience.

As well as running day and weekend residential retreats, Saira Francis offers regular weekly yoga classes in and around the Blandford area and additional holistic therapy and spa days

Mellulah wins Gold at the Dorset Tourism Awards 2017/18


Mellulah Yoga Retreat wins Gold at the Dorset Tourism Awards 2017/18

Last week, Mellulah Therapy & Yoga Retreats, won a Gold Award and was crowned Spa & Wellbeing Experience of the Year for Dorset, at an exciting and inspiring ceremony a the Lighthouse in Poole.

Mellulah’s Founder, Saira Francis, is making yoga more accessible by providing retreats for people from all backgrounds, age groups, budgets, gender and experience. Saira’s holistic and traditional approach to yoga aims to take her clients back to the roots of this therapeutic practice. Her groundedness, and focus on the health benefits of yoga, ensures that everyone feels comfortable and welcome at her classes and retreats.

Dorset Tourism Award judges were impressed by Saira’s ability to create a warm and inviting environment for retreaters to relax and let go of daily stresses. Offering yoga for all abilities alongside healthy, locally sourced vegan meals and blissful meditation and relaxation, in beautiful quiet settings around North and West Dorset.

This is the first year that the Dorset Tourism Awards has included a Spa & Wellbeing Category confirming the growing trend towards yoga, meditation and holistic health within the tourism industry in the UK.

A retreat with Mellulah offers an opportunity to step away from the hurly burly of modern life. Recent guests certainly agree:

“I gave myself a treat. I gifted myself a retreat day with Mellulah in North Dorset. It was blissful time to switch off, a day full of Yoga, nourishing food, meditation, mindfulness and yoga nidra. Time to switch off and just be for six whole hours. I totally recommend. Saira teaches from a place of experience and dedicated practice –while conveying both the depth and the simplicity of yoga, mindfulness and meditation in her words and teachings.” Alice Chutter, Bridport.

“Mellulah yoga is some of best yoga I have found anywhere . I have been lucky enough to practice yoga all over the world with some wonderful yogis. Saira is unquestionably one of the best teachers I’ve encountered. She has huge integrity and humility. How lucky I am to have found her.” Catty Lowsley-Williams, Blandford

The whole of the Mellulah Team including therapists, workshop facilitators, caterers and helpers would like to thank you all for your continuing support, do come and see us again soon!

Namaste, Saira xx
