Mel started practicing yoga in 2013, when she finally discovered a form of exercise she actually enjoyed! She gained a broad experience of various styles (including Iyengar, Hatha, and Modern Vinyasa) while practicing at studios in Sydney, Perth, New York and Indonesia.
She soon realised the benefits of yoga, not just for our bodies, but also our minds, and set a goal to become a qualified yoga teacher to share these benefits with others.
In 2018, Mel completed her 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training with Stefan Camilleri. The course centered around Alignment-based Vinyasa, combining her love of both Iyengar and Vinyasa styles. She’s committed to ongoing education and development, taking every opportunity to further her skills.
Mel now teaches throughout Perth with a focus on safety and alignment during fun, Vinyasa-style classes. She holds a RYT® 200 with Yoga Alliance (Registry ID 267285).
“I started practicing yoga in 2010 and have used it over the years to help recover from various sporting injuries. I love the way it balances the body and works equally on both sides, while building strength and flexibility. Since completing my 200YTT in 2018 at Empowered, I have also done Restorative Yoga teacher training with Lizzie Lasater.

I am currently doing an Experiential Anatomy course as well as a fusio
