My name is Melissa and my yoga journey began close to forty years ago. It began as a way to control my breath and exercise while living with severe asthma. Yoga has made me stronger, mind, body and soul. Since an early age, I have always been drawn to meditation.
I completed my 200- and 300-Hour Yoga Teacher Trainings through The Yoga and Ayurveda Center under Steph Ball-Mitchell. I am also certified in restorative yoga, chair yoga, yin yoga and curvy yoga. I am registered with Yoga Alliance as an ERYT-200, RYT-500 and YACEP; and certified as a 500-Hour Yoga Teacher with World Yoga Federation. I am certified as a Grand Master of Meditation through Meditation Alliance International after studying under Swami VIdyanand.
I have the honor of being an International Ambassador of the Meditation Alliance International and Ambassador-United States of America for TIME Meditation. I am an Usui Reiki Master and received my attunement at 4 Hands Spiritual Healing.
My husband and I founded Zen with Zegley, which offers reiki, yoga and meditation-with and without sound offerings, as well as workshops. I also offer YACEP through Online Yoga School Yoga and Ayurveda Center.
Off the mat, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading, being outdoors, gardening, paddle boarding and kayaking.
