Melissa discovered yoga at age 20 when she was living in Colorado. “I realized that my practice enabled my busy mind to slow down while giving my body the strength and flexibility to do all that I demanded of it. After having my son in 2008, I realized I needed yoga more than ever. I immersed myself in a 200-hour teacher training program. I lean on yoga for my spirituality and to create that peace inside while living in such a stimulating world. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and love of yoga with my students. I focus on alignment and helping students understand their own body. My outgoing and approachable personality often shines through in my classes. I am also a level 1 Kundalini instructor as well as a hatha 200 hour teacher.
