WHAT IS YOUR MESSAGE?

Life can be crazy. After experiencing first hand the effects an uneven work-life balance can have on the nervous system and overall sense of well-being, I began teaching yoga and mindfulness meditation. 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.

WHO IS YOUR INSPIRATION?

My inspiration is Indra Devi ! Born Eugenie Peterson of Russia, she was the first woman to break the glass ceiling of yoga and study beneath Sri Krishnamacharya. Known as the mother of Western yoga, Indra Devi invoked lasting social change across the globe that put into motion the idea that the practice of yoga should be accessible to men, women, and children alike.

About Melody Rogsuchka

WHY YOGA?
"Honestly, why not yoga! Like a best friend who is always there to listen and love, yoga can be anything I need it to be. It's a powerful breath practice to help me wake up at 6AM, and also a tool to help settle my anxiety when I'm stuck in rush hour traffic. It's the sweaty workout I need to drop out of my mind when it's racing 100mph, and the supportive rest I need when my back and feet are tired from teaching all day.

Yoga isn't really a pose, but more a toolbox for us to draw from. It's the connection between mind and body that reminds us who we are, and allows us to face this chaotic world with a focused mind and an open heart."

FUN FACT ABOUT MELODY

I collect Alice in Wonderland books! Life to me is just like tumbling down the rabbit hole; the further we go the curiouser it gets, and the only thing we truly control is how we show up to the experiences we're given.
