Melissa became a Registered Yoga Teacher in 2016 through Shri's 200-hour teacher training program. She has absolutely fallen in love with teaching yoga! Melissa offers an athletic power-flow class with creative sequencing, fun music, and an emphasis on strong and safe yoga practices. While her classes deliver a challenging physical experience, they also create a positive space to quiet the mind and calm the breathe. Melissa's yoga practice has taught her to become both strong and steady, kind and assertive, and most importantly, truly herself. Teaching yoga has proven to be the best gift; as it allows her to share her love for yoga, create one-of-a kind yoga classes, and help her students deepen their mind-body connections. In addition to teaching yoga, Melissa is also a Clinical Social Worker and mom to three amazing kids.
