Melina Gale

Nicknamed "the monkey" as a child, had you met a young Melina she most likely would have been hanging from a tree or doing flips on the playground. Fast forward to the present and not much has changed, the only difference is the tree is now an aerial hammock and the playground is now her mat.
After 15 years of practicing yoga on and off, chronic stress from the pressure of owning her own business drove Melina to finally take yoga seriously. Within weeks of a consistent yoga practice most of her symptoms were gone, and she instantly knew it was her path to share the healing benefits of yoga with the world.
Melina's teaching style is encouraging and playful, her mission is to help her students gain tools to overcome obstacles in their lives with the help of Yoga, and hopefully have some fun along the way.

Class descripton

Tap into Your Tapas

The word 'tapas' is derived from the root Sanskrit verb 'tap' which means to burn. It is the 3rd of Patanjali's Niyamas and traditionally it is interpreted as 'fiery discipline'.
It is the fiery motivation within us all that keeps us coming back to our mats, and getting up no matter how many times we fall, it's that spark that keeps us chasing our dreams no matter how far out of reach they may seem.
Sometimes though, that fire within us can dim, and when it does we tend to feel unmotivated and/or indecisive. But it is just at that precise moment when you need to cultivate your tapas the most!
In this heat building Vinyasa class we will working on igniting our inner Agni (fire) in order to burn away all impurities of the mind and body in order to spark a new sense of passion into our yoga practice.
