Certified Yoga Instruction

A life-long yoga practicioner, Melissa found it so rewarding, she decided to pursue certification as an instructor in 2002, training at the School of Complete Yoga in Chester, NJ. Her natural talent for coaching was so apparent, the school asked her to join their teaching team even before she completed the course.

Since then, Melissa has taught classes and provided private, one-on-one yoga instruction, helping countless students achieve better health, flexibility, strength and range of motion, as well as mental focus and clarity. Some of her students have even succeeded in reducing their number of medications as they gain better health through yoga.

Melissa has seen first hand just how much mindful movement can benefit health…as well as how difficult it can be to prioritize in today’s busy world. That’s why she chose to include in-home yoga coaching as a core part of Eat Well 2 Live Well.


FREE ASSESSMENT: Contact Coach Melissa for a FREE in-depth consultation, to establish your baseline and discuss your health goals. From there, Melissa will research and design a class customized to your specifications.

IN-HOME INSTRUCTION: Melissa will come to your home to guide you through the class, providing private, one-on-one guidance until you feel comfortable with the plan and poses. Following that, you can book in-home sessions of varying lengths and frequency, depending on your preference.
