Melanni – E-RYT 200
My yoga journey at the age of 50. When I started my yoga journey, I didn’t really understand all the benefits yoga had to offer until I turned 55 and got to experience the different styles of yoga; that’s when it became a passion for me. I enjoyed yoga so much that I wanted to teach it to others. Since then, I have had the pleasure to teach Vinyasa yoga to people of all ages. Every time I teach and practice yoga, I learn more about others and myself. I want to continue helping other individuals in their journey of discovering themselves and enriching their lives as mine has become.
