  • I actually don’t have words to describe how grateful I am for the past few days. I feel like I have learned more in 4 days with you than I’ve learned in the past 4 years of my yoga journey as an aspiring teacher. What an incredible feeling to know my body better, and to have the knowledge to be able to share it intelligently with others. Thank you from the depths of my soul.


  • Melanie McLaughlin's Yin Yoga Teacher Training has been the highlight of my 10 year yoga and my 3 year teacher training journey so far. Life-changing on so many levels, it reignited my passion for the mental, emotional and physically healing aspects of yoga, as well as cultivating a newfound love of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Taoist Philosophy.
