Melany completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training with It’s Yoga International in 2014. Since then, she has been working on achieving her 500 hour certification. Melany is also trained in kids yoga and earned an AA degree in early childhood education. Melany is the director of Kids Yoga Toledo and combined her training in yoga and college education to lead kids yoga teacher trainings. She has been leading a variety of classes at Toledo Yoga since it opened in 2014 including Rocket ®, ashtanga yoga, yoga flow, and yoga for kids.
Melany loves guiding all levels of practitioners together. Her classes focus on mindful breath and movement to create a balanced, strong, and graceful state of being. Some of her classes include handstands and some include guided yoga nidra (yogic sleep). She will go with the flow in relation to the energy of the room for that day. Her classes are relaxed and she encourages everyone to come as they are, inspire, and be inspired by the amazing Toledo Yoga community.
“In my class you can expect to receive whatever it is you wish for. Come in and rest in child’s pose for an hour or bust out a handstand in a sun salutation. I’ll encourage you to breathe and discover your inner wisdom as I guide you through a vinyasa flow. Sometimes I tell funny jokes. At least I think I’m funny.”
