Melissa has been practicing yoga for over ten years. However, at the beginning of her journey her practice was more about being fit and toned.
However, after finding success through the military and a corporate career, she became depressed and unfulfilled. She found that a consistent mindful practice was the only thing that was able help her work through issues and more authentic. She received her yoga certification at the Mindful Yoga Academy in Spain. Melissa opened the studio to help make yoga and healthy living easy and convenient in a community setting. She is also a certified Yoga Gangster and hopes to do more work with at risk populations. She enjoys teaching yoga with a mindful focus, employing awareness with the mind, body, and spirit rather than trying to bend into pretzels (although that can be fun too). In her spare time, he enjoys cooking, gardening, and doing just about anything in the water. She is also the owner of Ignite Your Bliss which combines yoga retreats with fun hobbies throughout the world.
