“Yoga is a light, which once lit, will never dim. The better your practice, the brighter the flame” – B.K.S. Iyengar

Since the studio opened in 2012, Melissa’s flame has definitely grown brighter. The students, amazing teachers, and the heat has inspired her commitment. When you walk into this studio, you feel at home. With the loving support of her Moksha family, she has completed several trainings: Moksha, Moksha Level 2, Yin, Vinyasa, and Restorative yoga. A kid at heart herself, Melissa also loves to teach yoga to children, and you know she’s guiding children in the room next door from the animal noises and vibrant, playful interactions.

Melissa believes that yoga brings out the best in everyone, sometimes our journey in life brings can bring us astray, but the practice always manages to guide us back. In Melissa’s classes, she likes to dull the edges of everyday life with a dash of playful sarcasm or a (bad) joke, and enjoys challenging students in a mindful way.

Other precious loves in Melissa’s life include her daughter, Bella; her dogs, Nala and Prince; she enjoys being in nature, travel, a good book, the sunshine, chocolate and a glass wine at the end of the day.
