Meet the Instructors

Melanie Pallsca

Involved in the world of yoga since 2010, I continue to be inspired by the teachings that it uncovers within myself and the magical world that surrounds me. I completed my 300 hours Intensive, Moksha Yoga Teacher Training in Nicaragua of March 2018 and am dedicated to keep learning. I am committed to sharing the gift of breath, mindfulness, and peace that yoga has brought in my life, with other people seeking this within themselves. In my spare time I love to figure skate, discover new hiking trails, go camping, spend quality time with family and friends, draw or paint, read, listen to music and travel to new destinations. “Yoga is a lifestyle. It has taught me how to find stillness in my mind, to be able to listen to my heart and has brought me awareness towards what truly matters in my life. Through my practice I continue to learn more about where I belong in this world and to appreciate each step of the journey.”

The series works to stretch, strenghten, and tone muscles while helping to detoxify the body and calm the mind. Practising the series can bring vitality, calm and joy along with the many other benefits.

The standing series, is a cardiovascular set of postures. The focus is on building strength, balance and endurance, using mindful breathing and an evolving sequence of asanas (postures). Asanas are held anywhere from ten seconds to one minute, allowing the skin to sweat and help detoxify the body.

The floor series, works on strengthening the upper body muscles, abdominal muscles, as well as the joints and the spine. Having thoroughly warmed the body in the standing series, the body is ready to open at the hips and spine. The floor series improves posture, relieves tension and helps alleviate lower back pain, as well as pain in the knees, shoulders, neck and hips.
