About Melissa

Melissa began practicing yoga in 2004 and fell in love with it immediately. Amazed at all the benefits that yoga has to offer, her passion led her to wanting to share it with others.

In 2009, she completed an intensive Hatha Yoga Teacher certification plus Radiant Child Yoga. Eager to continue studying and learning, she takes courses and workshops whenever possible. She feel fortunate to teach Hatha beginner and intermediate, Hot yoga, Flow, Prenatal, Parent/baby, Yin/Yang, Restorative, children and teens, and partner yoga.

My Quotations

"Yoga can be practiced anywhere, anytime and by anyone; regardless of size, age, or mobility. Many of us feel that we can't, aren't able, haven't...etc. But yoga is not about flexibility or getting into that funky pose. It's about being in the moment, using our breath to create balance and awareness in ourselves."
