Mel grew up in Germany where she studied Physical Therapy. In her mid 20’s she had the urge to leave and to discover the world. Travelling to different places she eventually found Maui and fell in love with the island.
“I started working as a licensed Massage Therapist and discovered different modalities such as Myofacial Release , Active Release Technique (ART) ,Visceral Manipulation and Cranial Sacral Therapy. I also certified with NASM as a Personal Trainer and Corrective Exercise Specialist.
When I met Karin and saw how she used her knowledge from the Corrective Exercise curriculum and brought it into yoga and I fell in love with the practice, experiencing directly that it can heal and not strain the body.
Mel has been a student of Karin’s for a number of year and in November 2018 received her RYT 300hr certification with Karin.
Drawing strongly from her many years of experience as a body worker and now her Fitness and Yoga trainings Mel is excited to be sharing her extensive training with students to support them on their path to health and healing.
