Yoga Therapy

I am a yoga teacher and physical therapist with a passion for exploring anatomy, physiology, and movement, and the ways in which science intersects with yoga practice. I entered the practice of yoga around age 15 when my mom began teaching yoga in our community. Yoga has been a guiding presence in my life since then, and I began teaching while studying exercise science at the University of South Carolina. I got my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Texas Woman’s University in 2011, and became board-certified in orthopedics in 2013.

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.
