Melissa was born & raised in the Chicago area, and has since lived in a handful of cities around the country. She recently made Birmingham her home and she is honored to share her yoga journey with the community here.
Melissa’s love for yoga began 12 years ago, when she started practicing yoga as a counterbalance to her workouts. She quickly noticed immense improvement in her strength, flexibility, and posture, while also finding a sense of peace and purpose that deepened each time she returned to her mat. In addition, she fell in love with the cardiovascular aspect of power yoga, and trained with power yoga master Baron Baptiste. Melissa incorporates her passion for music into each class with a mix that invokes a fun atmosphere.
