Mel has been practicing yoga for nearly two decades in Colorado and abroad. After working for several years in a corporate marketing setting, sneaking her practice in when she could, Mel released her ties to conventional life and embarked upon a yogic journey. She became a yoga teacher and an entrepreneur. First, she founded and operated Love Grown Wellness to support her love for yoga, later expanding her business to include her marketing and public relations background, now owning Love Grown Wellness & Marketing.
Mel believes that the physical asana practice is very important; however, the pranayama (breathwork), meditation and intention setting are key points in every class. Mel’s yoga offerings embody the true meaning of the practice by enveloping a mind – body connection. Mel blends her time on the mat with a deep-rooted passion for travel. She leads domestic and international retreats several times each year. “Every time I leave the comforts of home, I open my eyes to this amazing world around me. New sights, sounds, energies, all coming together to reawaken me to the powers and passions within.”
Through yoga, Mel has discovered a true connection between mind, body and soul. “I’ve been welcomed into a community of warm, kindred spirits looking to find peace and strength in our busy, ever-changing world. It’s on our mats where you can unravel the tension, calm the mind and unveil our most authentic selves.”
