Melanie was inspired to try yoga in 2006 when training for a triathlon. Her instant realization that the practice went far deeper than just a way to tone led her to explore the philosophy and history of yoga. Melanie received her 200-hour RYT certification in 2012. The studies proved to be a ‘game-changer’ in her life; the first step was to open her heart to learn what made her ‘tick’ in order to live a life full of compassion, love and acceptance. Melanie will always think of herself as a student, always grateful for the lessons yoga teaches her each time she steps on the mat. She continued her yogic journey completing her 300-hour RYT certification in 2015. Her most recent certification was earned in 2017 for a 200-hour RYT Pyschotherapeutic Yoga. As a certified holistic health coach and founder of Holistic Haven LLC, Melanie has crafted a 360-degree holistic approach to wellness offering a path to complete health – mind, body and soul.
