Melanie was one of the original students to be certified by Sri K. Pattahbi Jois, the father of Ashtanga yoga, and is one of only 17 women certified worldwide. Before Pattahbi Jois’ death in 2009, Melanie traveled for years to study with her guru at his home in Mysore, India. Melanie’s experience is felt in every adjustment and instruction that she gives to her students. The Ashtanga Yoga Room opened in 2002 with Pattahbi Jois’ blessing. Melanie imbues every class, training, workshop, and retreat with a deep knowledge of Pattahbi Jois’ teachings, a unique understanding of the transformative powers of the body’s subtle energy centers, and the distinctions made through 20 years of her own practice. Melanie cherishes Ashtanga Yoga as much today as she did when she started out, and still receives great benefits from the work. Melanie is known for her deep understanding of the physical body, her fantastic adjustments, and her keen eye for alignment. Says Melanie, “It is an honor to do this work and a great gift to love what I do so much.”
