Melanie is a Yoga Teacher, Certified In Holistic Nutritionist & Reiki Healer. Growing up as an athlete, she's always had a passion for health & wellness. After becoming a Holistic Nutritionist in 2013 she began to understand that being healthy wasn't just about what you put in your body, it was just as important to balance the emotional, spiritual and energetic aspects of yourself. Up until then, she had pursued yoga as injury-prevention and fitness but quickly began to see positive shifts and it brought her to a place of deeper connection with herself and the world around her.
Her yoga classes focus on breath work, mind-body connection, and healing from the inside out– all complimented by contemporary music to form an inviting atmosphere. She inspires students and clients to connect to their authentic selves and embrace all of their unique abilities.
Melanie Emlyn instructs the following:
Start your day with awareness, movement, and breath with this vinyasa based practice. This class will get your heart pumping, while working with your body post sleep. An energetic practice that blends sweat, strength and flexibility in a class that thoroughly tones the body and disciplines the mind. Everyone welcome.
“There’s something extra special about these early morning classes because everybody in the room took the extra effort to set the alarm and set off while most of the city is still sleeping. It’s a warm, inviting kind of energy and I use that to gently wake the deepest parts of ourselves before firing it up to set you for the rest of the day...”
Kate W. Mak
“A slow, sacred, rhythmic start to the day. Focus is on alignment and breath and deep, intimate self love.” Jamie Cameron
“I believe in the power of intention, ritual and following the rhythms of mother nature. Sunrise yoga brings me closer to each of these practices at the same time...” Stacey Irvine
Vinyasa Flow Yoga
A class of exploration for syncing movement and breath. We will uncover the magic of non-sequenced flow, and how the wide array of postures linked with pranayama will help support and build a strong mind, body and heart. Each class will be a different experience based on your teacher’s creative choice and background to bring you to new depths and your edge on that particular day. Vinyasa yoga is an opportunity to challenge yourself while accessing a non-traditional flow and the way in which you show up on your mat. How we do one thing is how we do everything. We can’t wait to meet you on your mat, and see where our movement takes us. Everyone is welcome to this class. It will meet you wherever you are in your own personal practice.
“movement steeped in breath + strength” Jennifer Mehalko
“A class that is always slightly different and inspired by what I am working through in my own life and personal practice. Each class is like a fingerprint, unique and different… just like us...” Kate W. Mak
“Strong and sweaty” Adriana Britton
“I adore this style of yoga as it helps us to remember our inner strength through the manifestation of the physical body. I’m inspired to teach this because it brings people to the edge of their perceived limitations and encourages them to get curious.” Stacey Irvine
Flow & Restore
The class is a beautiful balance starting with a steady practice matching movement and breath, heart with lungs. Your teacher will create a fluid unique sequence with a primary focus on generating internal heat through breath, sun salutations, balance, and strength. Once you are warm, muscles primed, you will transition into a sweet surrender of restorative yoga postures and the use of props to allow your mind and body to unwind. All levels welcome.
