Melissa McLaughlin's passion for movement began in long-distance running where she fell in love with running's rhythmic and meditative quality. With yoga practice, Melissa discovered she could run smoother, faster and farther and continued to delve into other forms of moving and seated meditation. After 6 years of yoga practice, she became a yoga teacher in 2014. In her first yoga training, she became fascinated with human anatomy and biomechanics and went on to earn a certificate in Fitness, Nutrition and Health as well as certification as a Personal Trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine.
