Born and raised in Cape Breton, Melissa moved to Halifax after finishing school and quickly fell in love with the charm of the city, its people, and yoga! After a 6-week introduction to yoga course, Melissa was enthralled and eager to learn as much as possible. She explored many different classes, soaking in the diverse teachings, and even after becoming pregnant, continued to practice through to week 39.
In 2009, a friend asked Melissa to join her at a Modo class. Not knowing anything about Modo, Melissa was astounded by how amazing she felt afterwards and was hooked! She soon left on a plane to Las Vegas to complete her Modo Teacher Training
Melissa is adamant that Yoga has changed her life, on and off the mat. Yoga has allowed her to connect with herself not only physically, but emotionally and spirituality, helping her grow to become the most positive role model for her daughter and son.
“Yoga is a gift that I have been blessed with, and I want to share it with others. I want to help people find the joy and peace that resides within themselves, just as I have.”
