Melanie Jabul Yetter, Founder of Open Door
Principal Meditation, Mindfulness, and Breath Work Teacher for the
Open Door Teacher Training School (RYS)
I am a Meditation and Dharma teacher in the Zen Buddhist tradition as well as in Insight Meditation (Vipassana). I was trained and ordained as a Buddhist monk while attending seminary, and am currently enrolled in the Mindfulness Facilitator Program at the UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior. I also have the great honor of being mentored by Josh Korda of Dharma Punx NYC. It is my pleasure to provide Spiritual Counseling in both group settings and one-on-one meetings. Each week, my Great Students and I share Dharma Lessons, Meditation Training, Mindfulness Education, Prānāyāma (breath work) Exercises, and Community Building.
I am an E-RYT 500 / YACEP®, and Director of Open Door's Meditation and Yoga Teacher Training School (RYS). I was trained and certified as a Yoga Instructor by Pranava Yogadhama’s master teacher and founder, Jayakumar Swamysree, in Mysore, India. My focus and specialty training includes Meditation, Prānāyāma, Sanskrit Chanting, Asana, and a Traditional South India practice.
