Melinda is a 500 Hour Certified Baptiste Teacher who is passionate about sharing the practice of Baptiste Yoga as a lifestyle beyond the walls of a studio. She is committed to supporting others through building community and causing each and every student to discover their own greatness. As a teacher, she believes it is important that classes be challenging yet accessible for all levels. Her students are empowered both physically and mentally by stretching the boundaries of their current comfort zone and opening up access points to create possibilities in their practice and their life.
When not at home in Oregon spending time with family, friends and teaching at Willamette Valley Power Yoga Studios, Melinda travels the world sharing yoga, leading retreats and assisting Baptiste trainings. She is an explorer of the great outdoors, a café connoisseur, and is easily inspired by life, art and a good kombucha.
