Melanie passionately shares the health and physical benefits of yoga with everyone she meets. She began practicing yoga in 1999 due to sciatic nerve damage and discovered that her practice not only alleviated her physical discomfort, it also brought a sense of joy, peace, strength and contentment to her life. She started with an Iyengar-influenced practice, then began incorporating other styles such as Vinyasa, Anusara, Power and Yin. This varied approach to her practice has provided her life with exactly the balance she needs.

In 2002, her desire to help others discover the wonders of yoga led her to pursue her yoga teacher certification through YogaFit, where she earned her RYT-200 Yoga Alliance certification. She completed her RYT-500 certification in 2016 through the Asheville Yoga Center.

Based in alignment and flow, Melanie’s classes emphasize honoring, challenging and celebrating the unique abilities of each student. Her mission is to make her students feel like they can accomplish anything they set their minds to…because they can! She has enjoyed studying with some of the best teachers in yoga today, including Rolf Gates, John Friend, Mitchel Bleier, Betsy Downing, Stephanie Keach, Shala Worsley, Sarah Faircloth, Beth Shaw and Stacey Millner-Collins.

Kind and patient yoga Teacher

Melanie is very understanding about injuries, she has a modification to show you for just about every pose that I know of. I have had scoliosis my whole life so this was important to me! Anyone can walk in off the street from any walk of life and take her class and feel totally comfortable, from 2 years old to 102 and beyond! Extremely versatile teacher...she flows!

Thank you!

Thank you for these kind words! I truly do feel that yoga is for everyone, so I never want anyone to think they can't begin a practice, no matter their issue.

Yoga Teacher for Real People

I have been to several of Melanie's classes and have enjoyed all of them immensely. She provides patient individual attention, is eager to answer any and all questions (if she does not know the answer, she will find out), and provides a role model for yoga practice that the average person can actually hope to attain. Her classes are fun, relaxing, and educational. She is personable, knowledgeable, and sympathetic to her students' needs. I give her my highest recommendation.
