Melanie has been practicing everything 'yoga' since her lengthy sojourn in India 15 years ago. While based at the Sivananda ashram in Kerala, Mel not only focused on the postures of yoga but meditation, breath work and every other positive experience yoga has to offer and stayed on for her first of many teacher trainings. This has now become her foundation to the way she practices and teaches today.

Upon her return to Australia, Melanie continued to deepen her personal practice by assisting and shadowing classes with Sydney-based teachers and teaching at Powerliving and BML. Inspired by the profound changes she realized from consistent practice, Melanie then trained with Baron Baptiste in the style of Power Yoga, Twee Merrigan in the style of Vinyasa Flow , Paul Grilley in the form of Yin Yoga - her current passion. This training gave her the platform she needed to find her own teaching style, which is a blend of modern Western/traditional Indian and Daoist approaches. During this time Melanie also began four years of study with her metaphysics teacher, Paul Balch. She is now certified at the teacher trainer level and shares many aspects of her energetic work in her yoga classes.

An honored ambassador of Lululemon Athletica, she also regularly contributes to Australian Yoga Journal, Women's health and Women's fitness magazine's. Now happily settled into the eastern beaches of Sydney, she was a founding director of This Is Yoga and currently director of The Yin Space and you can find her @ This is Yoga Clovelly and Inyoga Surry hills for regular weekly classes, yin yoga teacher trainings and private tuition. www.thisisyoga.com.au
