Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher, 200 hours
Melissa took her first yoga class when she was in high school, but began a consistent practice about 3 years ago. Due to multiple injuries, yoga was the only thing that helped her heal. As a result, she likes to focus on proper alignment and strengthening muscles to ensure safe movement through poses. She believes music is a form of meditation in itself, so you can expect her classes to have a high energy flow paired with upbeat music.
Melissa is originally from New Jersey, but after she graduated from UMD in 2017, she moved to Washington DC. There she found CorePower, where she completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training and a 50 hour continuing education program.
