Melissa’s yoga practice is rooted in her optimism and excitement for life and apparent through her smile and playful energy. Sharing in life’s energetic journey is a major foundation of her yoga teaching. Ingrained with deep spiritual beliefs since she was child, Melissa began the physical practice of yoga through curiosity and the discovery of YouTube videos and online applications. After earning a degree in Sports Psychology from West Virginia University, Melissa relocated to Vail and was introduced to Integrated Vinyasa Flow through her teacher, Julia Clarke. She found a true connection to this style of yoga practice and took on studies at the Colorado School of Yoga to complete her 200-Hour teacher training. Melissa strives to make the practice of yoga accessible to all through her class sequences, mindful modifications and a passionate influence of music and rhythm. She is never-stopping to learn from experiences on and off her mat and will challenge you to do the same. Her classes will encourage you to let loose, laugh and dance with the higher vibrations of life. We are all creatures and love and deserve to fulfill our composition!
