Melanie has been teaching hatha yoga since 2000 (BWY). Her main influence has been the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli (Awakening the Spine), whose legacy is a constant encouragement towards exploration, freeing the body so as to relax the mind. Working with the ground, breath and the spine. With the wish to gradually undo, unfold, let go, release, open. Melanie continues to study with John Stirk and Sandra Sabatini. And with the Discipline of Authentic Movement. She explored movement for many years with Diane Long and Sophy Hoare.
