Melissa’s yoga journey began at a local gym in 2007. She quickly became aware of not only the physical changes that were occurring in her body, but there was something she was feeling, something that was different, peaceful, and calming.
From there, she was led to become a Registered Yoga Teacher(RYT). In 2015, she completed her 500 hour RYT certification through a Yoga Alliance approved school. That same year, she also became certified with Ymedica Rewind and Rewind Gold Yoga which addresses boomer and senior health goals and well- being. She has also been trained in the use of Yoga Tune-Up Therapy Balls and Yin Yoga.
Through these trainings, Melissa has become more curious about the overall effect of body movement, nutrition and mindfulness. In 2016, to further her desire to help others restore and preserve their overall health and wellness, she became a Certified Health Coach through the American Council on Exercise, also known as ACE.
Her yoga practice and teacher trainings have equipped her with tools that she has applied to all areas of her life.
“The awareness, presence and peace yoga brings is life changing.”~Melissa
