Inspired by her yoga teachers, Shaelah Morris, Rusty Wells and Janet Stone, she feels at home in devoted studentship. Her classes allow for the opportunity to open up and expand not only our bodies but what’s underneath, such as our opinions of ourselves and others. She sees yoga as a way to deepen the relationships we create with all beings as well as everything in nature. In her classes, she creates an inviting oasis where you can connect your body and mind through the movement that resonates with you. Melissa shares yoga in a way that meets people where they're at and believes that yoga can have a profound impact on our lives. She strives to present yoga in a way that allows you to be an independent thinker so you can incorporate what you learn through your practice into your daily life.
