Melinda is a champion at empowering others, and this is true in her teacher trainings as well. She takes the time to get to know YOU….to really see you and all that you have to offer. She has inspired and encouraged me to find my own voice as a teacher and even as a human being. In fact, I didn’t intend to teach when I signed up for training. But as I learned more about myself and explored ways I wanted to be a light to others, my intention shifted. I am now sharing my love for yoga with others as an instructor, and Melinda continues to inspire me to learn and grow in this practice.
Whether you wish to teach or simply want to deepen your practice, training with Melinda will help you do that and more. Perhaps most importantly, through my training with Melinda, I learned more about myself and the ways that I can be a light and inspiration in my community.
