Melanie has completed 500 hours of Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training (level 1, 2 & 3) through the nurturing tutelage of internationally acclaimed teachers of 8limbs Yoga, Monica Gauci and Gregor Maehle. Melanie is committed to the practice and philosophy of Patanjali's 8 limbs, aspiring to live yoga on and off the mat. Passionate about merging yoga and holistic health to complement her ongoing work in the field of addictions and mental health, both of which deeply influence her teaching style, Melanie embraces our interconnectedness and individual uniqueness as infinite expressions of the Divine, so eloquently described in ageless Yogic philosophy: "Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the Self." - Bhagavad Gita Hari Om Tat
