About Melissa, E-RYT 500, RCYT, YACEP

Melissa cultivated her unique, interdisciplinary approach to yoga at the Nosara Yoga Institute of Costa Rica where she earned her 200 and 500-hr teaching credentials under the instruction of Brahmanand and Amba Stapleton. Her experiential style of teaching is fueled by an insatiable curiosity, a love of biomechanics, and a belief that one’s direct experience is the ultimate authority in yoga and in life. With a passion for making yoga accessible to everyone, she holds space for the miraculous and meets people where they are. Melissa teaches a playful, dynamic vinyasa where laughter is encouraged and discovery the pinnacle experience. A student of astrology, Vipassanna meditation, and life, her yoga practice is another way she celebrates being alive and awake!
