Melanie Castleman

My practice started in 2001 when I discovered that all I needed to do was tie myself into a knot to feel at peace ? After a few years I had completed two teacher trainings, 2004 YYI (Iyengar based), 2005 Hatha (Haum of Yoga) as well as many workshops/immersions with various international and local teachers.

I am Inspired by Anusara, Vinyasa, Forrest, Ashtanga and Kundalini. I have experienced Desiree Rumbaugh ( Anusara ), Jordan Bloom ( Anusara ), Ashtanga in the Shala with Charat and Saraswati ( AYRI Mysore, India), Gurmukh on the Ganges ( Kundalini), Seann Corn ( Vinyasa), and many of our fantastic local teachers. After experiencing many different styles of yoga my passion lies in Vinyasa,  it allows me the freedom to combine my favourite aspects of other styles into one while adding my own personal “twist”. I enjoy discovering ways of stringing and infusing postures into a sequence that inspires and changes our way of habit, liberating body, mind, and spirit. My classes are challenging for those who wish to deepen their practice as well as accommodating to beginners. I look forward to seeing you on the mat.
