Melanie Salvatore-August


Our perception is our reality. Melanie “Mel” began practicing yoga to shift out of destructive thought patterns and to heal from anxiety and feelings of powerlessness. Through yoga Mel has changed her perception of her life and transformed it in every way. A 18 year journey from suffering to joyfulness has created an inspiring energized courageously loving offering to her students. Integrating the simple yet profound tools of Focus, Fire, Truth and Love with the Mindful Precision of the YogaWorks Method Mel awakens students to the ever present light in and around them.
“When we awaken to the magnificent beauty of our life we become empowered to create our deepest healing dreams as true reality. Awakening from the dull slumber of habitual life (which holds ignorance of our true nature, fear, isolation) we beam light and guidance to others by our example. Thru that example and the echo of each of our joyful empowered awareness we will shift the consciousness of the world from scarcity to abundance.” MSA
