Melody Carrillo is a Los angeles native. Her interest in Yoga began with meditation. After attending several silent meditation retreats she began to pursue yoga more seriously and became a certified teacher. This deepened her practice, furthering her knowledge of yoga and anatomy. As a teacher she focuses on proper body alignment, breathing techniques (pranayama), combining movement with breath, and hands on adjustments. Though her classes always contain a clear theme, whether it be focusing on opening a particular part of the body or building up and warming down from a specific peak pose, she remains mindful of each individuals personal practice and navigates her class according to the needs and attention required by her students.
