-Melissa is a 500-hr yoga instructor, toddler-mom, and self-proclaimed “movement optimist". She earned her teaching certifications from the Nosara Yoga Institute of Costa Rica where she credits her teachers Don and Amba Stapleton for her unique, interdisciplinary style of yoga. Her approach to asana is FUNctional, skills-based and dogma free, allowing her to incorporate a variety of other movement modalities into her practice, including Functional Range Conditioning (FRC), Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) and Somatic Movement. Fundamental to her teaching is a reverence for all human form and function and a humble deference to the body’s innate intelligence. Melissa’s yoga is a true reflection of her childlike curiosity, compassionate nature, and genuine zest for life. A perpetual student, her biggest teacher is her 3yr old son. Her “movement guru” inspires her to practice in a myriad of playful and adaptive ways serving as a powerful reminder of the value and importance of human creativity, variability and FUN.
