Hi and welcome!
I'm so glad you're here!
Movement, meditation, sound, and the breath have a unique way of teaching us about ourselves and the world we live in. The classes I share are intentionally slow and spacious and focus on cultivating present-moment awareness, energy flow and self-inquiry. They balance slow, passive, long-held postures (yin) with more rhythmic, muscular flows (yang). My sound meditation and sound massage practices involve the use of Tibetan singing bowls, chimes and other instruments.
My aim is to inspire curiosity about how we relate to ourselves, each other, and our natural environments through the practice of yoga. I have been interested in these relationships since my studies in marine biology and anthropology, and I am passionate about exploring our deep belonging through yoga.
This is an invitation to come and explore everything that is waiting to be discovered right now. Come exactly as you are.
Here’s What Clients Are Saying
Mel is the calm, gentle, intuitive yoga teacher I’ve been needing in my life. Earthy and unpretentious, Mel’s classes allow you to be where you’re at, to pause and breathe in the moment and to genuinely enjoy the practice. The classes are completely accessible and inclusive (regardless of previous yoga experience) and the added bonus of being bathed by some healing, balancing frequencies during Shavasana is divine. So grateful. Thank You.
It is very rare to find an instructor that is both an expertise in their field and an expert at the teaching process. Mel delivers an extraordinary blend of care, empathy and wisdom in her classes that not only make them enjoyable but actually life changing. Participants hoard her classes like the sneaky secret of the week and if you can find a spare mat, just do it, you will love it.
I'll look back on 2020 with great fondness thanks to your beautiful yoga, which flows into so many aspects of life, it's truly life-changing! Thank you so much for including us here on Kangaroo Island.
