A flame that has never faded was lit in my first Yoga class in 2000. The last 2 years have afforded me the opportunity to make this passion my full-time focus – and what a privilege it has been to pass the flame of this ancient wisdom to others through teaching.

I truly believe Yoga is inherent in all of us; as such my classes are not about learning something new, but rather remembering a more natural way to move, hold ourselves and journey through life – with space, with lightness, in wellness.

Mel's passion for yoga shines through in every class. She loves challenging her students and seeing them progress in their practice. She prefers to build her students up to more difficult poses, making sure that they are thoroughly prepared before attempting the challenges she sets before them. She also teaches kids and teens, and her students (from the very young to the very old) love her classes. When you leave Mel's classes, you feel strong and assured, but also rejuvenated and restored.
