To this day Melé remembers the effect her first yoga class had on her and her friends. An immense feeling of stillness, calm and enlightenment, yet after moving and working their bodies.The ability to guide someone into this state of peace and wellbeing intrigued Melé and started her on her Yoga journey.
It also made her hungry to understand how to bring others into
this state, which is where she began her teacher training journey.
Melé first practised yoga in 2004. She holds the following 200hr qualifications; British Wheel of Yoga (BWY accreditation), Yoga Alliance Professionals (UK) registered and Yoga Alliance US certified, having completed her 200hr Teacher Training with world-renowned yoga teacher Simon Low and The Yoga Academy,
Melé offers regular group and one-to-one yoga classes in and around Surrey. Her yoga style is a blend of Hatha, Yin Yang and mindful Vinyasa Flow Yoga.
Melé would love to share the yoga journey with you, so get

There is a pratice for everybody
Some of the practices include:
Asana – Physical postures
Probably the most well-known element of yoga. We’ve all seen pictures of yogi’s getting themselves into perplexing positions. This can sometimes put people off as they think they have to be flexible, but this is a misconception. Asana doesn't have to be complicated and can help improve your strength, balance, focus, flexibility and much much more!
Pranayama – Breathing techniques
Can help control your nervous system reducing stress and anxiety, or directing energy
where it’s needed. These techniques can promote calmness aiding improved sleep.
Meditation – Exercising the muscle of the mind!
We sometimes focus on what we can see, but if we can help clear our minds we could lead more peaceful lives. Meditation is a form of exercising the mind, helping to build strength and control.
But this is only the tip of the iceberg into the paradox that is yoga.
“Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts.”
Thích Nhãt Hạnh
