Melina began her yoga journey 15 years ago, practicing to supplement her dance training. She completed her yoga teacher training 3 years ago and began sharing her yoga practice with others. By teaching community based classes and volunteering at a Cook County Correctional facility, Melina’s desire to be involved in community outreach programs grew. Her mission to bring health and wellness to undeserved communities brought her to The PiEproject. With a unique background in dance and medical sciences her style incorporates mindful fluid movement and therapeutic assists. She is excited to incorporate her background, love for yoga, health and wellness as she continues through medical school.
