Melissa first found yoga in 2008 after a sports related injury. She was looking for a gentle form of movement to serve as another form of rehabilitation. After the first few classes she was in love with this practice, feeling a deep connection and a sense of peace. It became more then just a form of exercise.

After many years of practicing, Melissa was motivated to expand her knowledge and understanding of this practice which led her to complete her 200 hour Vinyasa certification in Newport Beach, California in 2012. After her teaching journey began she felt compelled to know more and completed her Modo Yoga level 1 in Kelowna, BC in the summer of 2016 and Modo Flow in NYC of May 2017.

Melissa is currently studying at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy with hopes of becoming an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner.
