“What draws me to yoga is what it does for my body and my mind. I feel more confident in my own body, fulfilled and centered by the end of my practice no matter if it was a “good” practice or not. I also, enjoy both the challenge and therapeutic opportunities yoga offers. I like teaching all levels and love sharing yoga with people because I believe in its healthy effects in every aspect of our lives. I hope to guide my students in a gentle and strong practice, learning to cultivate strength and mobility for a practice that can last you a lifetime!”

Melissa’s yoga journey began in 2013 shortly after having her first child. She was tired all the time, stressed from the pressures that came with being a new mom with a high pressure job, and was left constantly putting her personal health at the bottom of the priority list. After hearing a lot of positive experiences from friends about yoga, she decided to give it a shot. After her first class she was hooked! Within a few months of regular practice, she felt healthier and stronger than ever, both mentally and physically. Yoga taught her about the importance of self care, being present, living with an attitude of gratitude, letting go of expectations and resentments; and through all of that it truly changed her life for the better. She wanted to share those revelations with the world. She completed her 200hr RYT training at Get Zen Hot Yoga in 2016 after having her second baby. In 2018 she became a certified Kidding Around Yoga teacher to further her practice with her own children, she loved the KAY practice so much that she decided she wanted to share it with as many families as she could! Shortly after completing her second training course she started her business, Family Yoga with Melissa. She is a firm believer that yoga can change the world, one peaceful child/person at a time.
As a yoga student for twenty years, Sarah has long recognized the powerful healing accessible through yoga. In her own journey through addiction recovery, motherhood, and divorce, yoga was an indispensable tool in healing, self-care, and growth. After personally experiencing the benefits that yoga provides through mindfulness, physical wellness, and self-awareness, she felt called to become a teacher in order to bring the goodness to others. Sarah’s 200hr RYT training was completed at the Viveka Yoga School of Mercer Island, which included diverse modalities and a focus on mindful class sequencing with emphasis on anatomy and functional movement. Her ongoing training includes addiction recovery yoga theory, the study of yoga nidra and restorative/yin style asana, and assorted specialized workshops on everything from chakras to alignment. Sarah is excited to join the One Mind Yoga family and can’t wait to meet you on the mat some day soon.
