About The Teacher
Melanie McDaniel; Yoga Teacher and Owner of “OM” Time Yoga Studio Dunsborough, West Australia; completed her Yoga Teacher Training in Goa, India at Himalaya Yoga Valley in 2011. After 25 years of practicing Yoga, this brought an adult life-long dream, to fruition. Previous years of working and training in the Fitness Industry since the age of 17, has given Mel a deep foundation of knowledge in physiology and anatomy, a real compliment to teaching Yoga. Her ongoing thirst for Spirituality since the age of 19 and staying in Ashrams from the age of 26, has led her to a thorough understanding of Yoga philosophy, pranayama, meditation, chanting, charkras and kriyas. Melanie brings all of this and more, to her students in each class, through her love of yoga. She believes that we all need Yoga in our lives; not just for flexibility and all the health benefits that it brings to us, but also to keep us accountable to be the best human beings that we can be; to use Yoga on and off the mat as a tool for self-enquiry in all that we do!
Although trained in Ashtanga originally, Mel has gone on to do further teacher trainings with Jo Phee, and study with Donna Farhi and Simon Borg Oliver, all of which has greatly influenced her teaching style, currently she teaches Hatha Vinyasa flow, Yang Rejuvenate and Yin yoga classes at her Studio. Her all-inclusive teaching style and ability to cater for anyone from beginner level to more advanced practitioner allows anyone to join her classes and Retreats.Source: kurakurayogaretreat.secure.retreat.guru
