Melissa found her way to her mat back in 2003 in NYC as a way to heal her injuries from dance and as a necessary escape from the hustle of NYC’s streets. Her regular Bikram practice brought her strength, flexibility and a softening she did not expect. After her acting career lead her to LA, she found a new home at CorePower Yoga decided turned her extensive knowledge of anatomy and alignment into a career when she completed her first 200 hour yoga certification in Hot Power Fusion. She has since completed her second 200 hr certification in Power Vinyasa Flow. Melissa’s BA in dance guides the way she teaches and her detailed cues help her students focus on proper body alignment while they deepen their relationship with both their body and mind. Yoga has truly made Melissa a better and stronger person inside and out and she is thrilled to share her love and passion with everyone that enters the studio.
