"Be good to yourself. If you don't take care of your body, where are you going to live?"
Raised in the mountains of Park City, Melody knew from an early age that there is a special connection between people and the Earth. She recalls passionately playing in her grandmothers garden as a child, and, always a lover of odd things, crafted healing kits and nature potions out of plants and stones after tragically losing a childhood hamster. Before graduating high school, Melody had a serious medical trauma that debilitated her mobility, and required her to approach life in a much different way. She discovered the practice of yoga, initially very slowly and quietly; it served as a foundational tool for her to heal physically, but also laid the blueprint for future psychological and emotional healing.
Melody attended the University of Utah for her Bachelors of Science, then moved to the San Francisco Bay Area for an exciting and fated new opportunity. It was there that Melody realized her ability to communicate and her passion for holistic health made a unique match. She studied at Namaste Yoga and Wellness under Vicki Russel Bell, Ashley Sharp, Nubia Teixeira, Domonick Wegesin and Sariah Jiwan Shakti — and soon after began teaching yoga classes and wellness tools to East Bay residents.
Melody has continued to follow her interest and passion for healing trauma, studying Kundalini yoga, essential oils, pranic shamanism and sound healing. She enjoys bringing these practices into her sessions, and educating clients on the energy meridians of the body and how to live in rhythm with the Earth.
In her words, “Yoga is more than just a practice, it’s a lifestyle, and a way of being. Yoga teaches us to move freely, to understand our bodies, and to unlearn all the things that separate us from our Self. Yoga teaches us to be. “
