About

Hi, my name is Melissa. I am a Certified 200hr Vinyasa and Trauma Informed Yoga Instructor from the beautiful Caribbean island of Puerto Rico. Yoga became an important part of my life in 2009 after a long battle with depression. Upon discovering yoga and its healing benefits, I dove deep into the practice and finally decided to bring my new found love to others by going through a 200hr Vinyasa Teacher Training in 2015 at The Yoga Room in Astoria, Queens (NY). My hope is to share my love for yoga and music in my classes and inspire others.

During my time as a yoga instructor, I have had the absolute privilege of teaching in New York City, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, Croatia, Morocco and France. Because of this, I now speak three languages. My native languages are English and Spanish and currently I’m at level B2 in French. My desire is to connect with more yogis around the world as I continue my spiritual journey. Thank you for visiting my page.
