Large_l81a1005Melissa Abdine (RYT 200) is a recovering Type A who has been practicing yoga for over 16 years. After the birth of her 2nd child in 2009 she began exploring Bikram and Iyengar based vinyasa yoga. It didn’t take long for her to discover the mind and body benefits from consistent practice. In 2013 she took her practice to the next level by completing her first teachers' training with Gioconda Yoga. She continues to pursue education in yoga and will be participating in a training for teaching kids yoga with The Little Yoga House in 2015, and will lead her first yoga retreat to Sonoma in 2016. This ongoing process of learning is what provides the fresh insights that inspire her teaching. Melissa’s classes are alignment based, playful, and refreshing. When she is not on her mat, you can find her drinking way too much coffee with her husband, biking around the ‘hood with her daughters, teaching elementary kids crafty things, or chilling out in her backyard.
