Had Mélanie known to which extent yoga would change her life, she probably wouldn’t have dared to start with it. As an emergency care medical doctor she came from a success-oriented, fast-paced world and turned to yoga in an attempt to wind down – and, to her surprise, she instantaneously fell in love with it. The initial fascination for the physical workout soon developed into a deep enchantment for also the mental and spiritual benefits – oh how did she enjoy the formerly unknown awareness and peace which yoga gifted her! Ever since completing her 200h teacher training at Frog Lotus International in September 2011 she has been teaching Vinyasa Flow yoga, be it in her home town Zurich (Switzerland), or Buenos Aires, Argentina and Barcelona, Spain.
Over the years Mélanie expanded her yoga horizon by also incorporating yin-yoga, a subtler form of yoga with long held stretches and meditative mindfulness, into her practice and into her teaching. As a passionate Acro-Yogi and a certified AcroYoga instructor, she happily shares the playful acrobatic elements and challenging partner practices with students from all over the world.
Since 2012 Mélanie moreover works as an anatomy instructor for yoga teacher trainings in Switzerland, Belgium, Spain and Bali, where she shares her passion for yoga and her anatomical background with soon-to-be yoga teachers. She’s contagiously enthusiastic about transforming anatomical knowledge into safe and intelligent yoga classes. It fills her with joy and gratitude to support aspiring yoga teachers in their transformative journey of physical, mental and spiritual growth.
She feels honoured to now be part of the FLY teaching team, since it’s the school where she met the most inspiring yoga teachers so far.
