Soul Surfing Yogi - committed to authentic evolution - inspired to dance with the flow of life in its raw natural essence.
Mel found Yoga in 1995 when during her psychology studies she intuitively felt drawn to explore eastern philosophy as a compliment to her western understanding of the human mind.
She qualified as a Yoga Alliance certified teacher in 2009 and enjoyed the incredible privilege to study traditional Yoga from the source in India.
Her knowledge is firmly rooted in the classical teachings of Krishnamacharya, focused on the disciplines of Iyengar and Ashtanga Yoga, yet expands beyond any particular system to include a variety of wisdom teachings from Tantric, Buddhist, Shamanic and Daoist traditions.
Mel’s approach is open and inquisitive, drawing inspiration from the raw elements of nature and her direct experience of life. Continually expanding her knowledge of the rhythmical flow of life force in body, mind and soul, she creatively weaves a tapestry of insight into her classes.
Expect a deep dose of Yoga philosophy mixed with eclectic sounds, anatomical alignment cues and transformational Yoga flow.
