I’m Melissa, I was born in Mexico and grew up with my feet in the sand, my skin always salty from the sea and my curly hair knotted. My parents are French, my mum is half Senegalese and I lived in Marseille for 6 years, I also lived in London for 11 years and I have now been living in Central America for 5 years but the World is my Home.
After living most of my life as I thought I should; going to university, completing a Masters degree, working in the corporate World and spending money on things and experiences that brought me temporary fulfilment, I found Yoga.
I now realise that I was looking for something, without knowing I was, or what it was.
I longed for meaning that no pair of shoes, holiday or promotion could ever give me.
I fell in love with the practice.
I started meditating daily, went to yoga classes most days and I began to notice how my spiritual practice positively radiated to every area of my life.
Yoga led me to the most profound realisation – Everything I ever longed for was within me.
Yoga impacted my life and my relationships so profoundly, that I felt inspired to deepen my understanding of yogic philosophy and share it with others.
Yoga Teacher Training revolutionised my understanding not only of Yoga but of mySelf and Life itself.
I have since continued to learn from wonderful teachers that have guided me and inspired me to further my learning and continue on the path of self-realization.
I guide classes, workshops, ceremonies, retreats and Yoga Teacher Trainings and I continue to be amazed by the healing and transforming powers of breath, movement, stillness, intention and connection and am grateful every day for the opportunity to share these practices with others.
