Yoga teacher at Swaha Center.
Nicknamed 'the monkey' as a child, had you met a young Melina she most likely would have been hanging from a tree or doing flips on the playground. Fast forward to the present and not much has changed, the only difference is the tree is now an aerial hammock and the playground is now her mat.
After 15 years of practicing yoga on and off, chronic stress from the pressure of owning her own business drove Melina to finally take yoga seriously. Within weeks of a consistent yoga practice most of her symptoms were gone, and she instantly knew it was her path to share the healing benefits of yoga with the world.
In 2014 Melina completed her Ashtanga Vinyasa 200hr teacher training with The Yoga People (Jamie Clark and Dulce Aguilar) at All Yoga Thailand. She has gone on to further her studies by completing the Aerial Yoga teacher training and Prenatal teacher training at Swaha in 2015.
Melina's teaching style is encouraging and playful, her mission is to help her students navigate their busy lives with the help of Yoga, all with a smile on their face!
