Owner / Lead Instructor
Melissa found yoga back in 2007 when she was trying to find a more natural way to deal with anxiety, other than medication. She instantly fell in love and wanted to share this amazing realization with anyone and everyone. After many years of practice, Melissa decided to enroll in teacher training to get her 200 RYT. It was during that training that she realized she really wanted to focus her training on helping people deal with issues, such as PTSD, stress, anxiety, and depression. That's when Melissa decided to teach GI Yoga, which is yoga that works with military vets, and first responders. She is currently enrolled in a yoga therapy school, where she will learn to help people use yoga to help manage their pain. Showing people that yoga isn't about the poses and how flexible you are, but rather about finding that mind, body, breath connection is what Melissa wants her students to feel when they take her classes.
When Melissa isn't on her mat, she enjoys camping, traveling, and hanging with her husband and fur babies. She also loves finding new vegan restaurants and recipes to try out. "Opening this studio is really a way for me to share my love for yoga with everyone. I can't wait for others to appreciate and fall in love with the message yoga really brings." Om Shanti, Om Peace!
