Her main practice is Kundalini Yoga, taught through Reinhard Gammenthaler, the last disciple of Dhirendra Brahmachari. It utilizes unique combinations of Asanas, Mudras, Bhandas and Pranayama.
As a nurse Mela has always been interested in health, anatomy and bodywork. She has extensive experience working with children and teenagers in psychiatric clinics. For many years nutrition has been a big passion in her life. She has completed a diploma in holistic nutrition and taken courses in Reiki, Chi Nei Tsang (Taoist abdominal massage) and other healing modalities.
Mela loves exploring various forms of bodywork in her daily life. She finds her joy in dance, acrobatics, breath-work and singing. She is passionate about using her voice with mantras, playing harmonium and offering space for bhajan. As a teacher she endeavors to share her abundance in a fun and transformative environment.
In her yoga and partner-acrobatics classes students will explore the depths of breath, trust, touch and an awareness of their whole body.
