who we are

She completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training with Amanda Feinstein, and more recently has received her advanced yoga training 300-hour certification with Gail Cristelli at Freehold Yoga Center. On top of her regular yoga certification, Melanie is also a health and wellness coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition as well as a Reiki Master, Pilates mat certified and paddle board yoga certified.
