About The Teacher

Melinda Abbott is a yoga teacher, fitness freak, and veggie lover who is constantly moving, learning and motivating others to break a sweat!

Melinda’s yoga experience dates back 20 years when she fell asleep in savasana and realized she had never before stopped to simply breathe and be in her body. Since then, she has completed over 600 hours of yoga training, at Integral Yoga (2005), Jivamukti Yoga (2012) and Pure Yoga (2012). Melinda is grateful to have studied under some truly remarkable teachers including Sharon Gannon, David Life, Scott Harig, Shana Swanson and many more.

Melinda can be found leading sold-out classes 15 times a week at NYC’s world-class fitness club Equinox. She leads local and international retreats several times per year. In the spirit of teaching from a place of truth, Melinda is dedicated to maintaining her physical fitness and pursuing a path of spiritual growth. She embraces life with fearless and loving, generous energy.
