Yoga Instructor
"My name is Melody.
I received my 200hr RYT certification in 2015 from Boulevard Yoga in Kansas City MO and have since accumulated over 1,800 hours of teaching experience.
I currently live in South East Texas and teach in multiple gyms, community centers, and studios. I offer a Yoga for Athletes program with the Soft Ball and Basket Ball teams at Lamar State College and offer private lessons and special events in partnership with other businesses and locations throughout Southeast Texas. Some of my very favorite recurring community events are Brew Yoga at the Neches Brewing Company, Beach Yoga at Sea Rim State Park, And Restore & Recoop - a workshop series designed to relieve tension through stretch, rotation, and micro-facial release.

On top of all that, I am the founder of Twisted Tykes Family Yoga- a yoga and creative movement program that has weekly family and kid’s classes as well as community events throughout the area.

When I’m not teaching yoga, I work with Special Needs Education Programs and spend my summers working in with the Coterie Theatre in Kansas City. I also watch lots of Netflix on my bed snuggled up with my kitten and desperately love margaritas, theatre, the beach, my garden, and spending all of my time either in airplanes or by the ocean – preferably with a good book.

In my classes, I offer a mindful Vinyasa and Hatha practices that focus on meditation and movement. I love being able to use yoga to create community and connection where ever I am and I am so proud to continue to be a part of Heartland Yoga Festival, which does exactly that!
