Melanie has been teaching hatha yoga since 2000 (BWY). Her main influence has been the teaching of John Stirk, with a constant encouragement towards exploration, freeing the body so as to relax the mind. Working with gravity, the breath and the spine, to discover what our bodies can teach us. With the wish to unfold on all levels, to discover how we are and might be, as we gradually undo, let go, release, open. Melanie continues to engage with a more exploratory, creative way of moving and being, with Sandra Sabatini, Bill Wood and the Discipline of Authentic Movement. She studied for many years with Diane Long.
