Jean-Marie has been teaching various styles of yoga since 2006. She attended her first yoga class in 1995 when she was a group fitness instructor, and she immediately incorporated yoga postures into her classes to promote flexibility. She subsequently received her 200-hour YTT certification in Anahata Integral yoga, and her 500-hour certification in Shakti yoga. As a perpetual student, Jean-Marie has an ongoing self-study practice, which consists of daily meditation and being present in each moment. She invites you to experience her diverse teachings in each of her YogaBalance classes.
Melissa received a 200-hour certification from YogaWorks. She began practicing yoga in Tennessee in the late 90s. Initially drawn to the athleticism of yoga, Melissa's practice was strictly a physical one until the birth of her daughter in 2010. The new physical limitations she then experienced sparked the beginning of an interest in the deeper aspects of yoga, and now she loves both the physical challenge on the mat and the peace that extends beyond it. Melissa is excited to have you join her for a fun practice that will leave you smiling and with a full heart.
