Ok, so if you don't know already I am pretty obsessed with yoga (check out my yoga website here). So at the beginning of 2017 I embarked on my journey to become a certified yoga instructor. After completing my RYT 200 I came across Mel Marie's RYT 300 training program. I instantly knew this was my path. It was a Adaptive and Therapeutic Yoga Training Program and if you know my story you know how yoga saved and continues to save me in my journey through chronic illness. I wanted to be a yoga teacher for others struggling with their health and I knew this program could help guide me on my course.
I called her up immediately to learn more. I was timid having just graduated from my Teacher Training and not feeling prepared for advanced training but the steady and beautiful voice on the other end calmed my nerves and I knew this was indeed my dharma. I completed my RYT 300 with her this past December and let me tell you the journey was incredible. Mel Marie and the women I met through her training touched my soul. We laughed, we cried, we learned together and supported each other on our course. Seriously if you are considering a yoga training program I encourage you to look into hers. You won't be disappointed.
At the end of the program she told us the wonderful news that she was opening her Self Care Shala which would be a sanctuary for all things self-care. I was thrilled for her and even more thrilled that she has asked me to teach here in 2018... more on that later. Since she literally just opened in this past week I asked her if she would like to be our featured vendor for January and she graciously accepted. I stopped in the other day to chat with her and take some photos for this blog and the place is a gem!! I have lots of wonderful collaborations coming up with this beauty but for now I will let her share her business with you. Enjoy... and remember self-care is self-love!
