Meet the Teachers
Hi, I'm Melissa.
For me, the practice of yoga has been a powerful ally for reconnection. With intention (and without judgement), linking breath, movement, sensation, and the mind to the present moment. Being with yourself just as you are, from a place of wholeness.
I received my 200 hour teacher certification through Passion Yoga School in Costa Rica. I am certified in yin yoga through Soma Yin, as well as restorative yoga, certified through Synergy School. I believe stillness and gentle movements with love to be an art form to reclaim your space from mental chatter, heal injuries, counteract stress, and find wellness.
Currently, I am working to complete my Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Antioch University here in Seattle. I teach yoga at a domestic violence agency where I am also an interning therapist. It is my passion to blend the philosophies of yoga with my knowledge of the nervous system, reversing the effects of stress on the body and mind.
I look forward to meeting you on your mat!
