the mission

The mission of Melā is to offer knowledge, training, and the space to realize one's full potential as a vibrant, self-luminous being in the modern world.  Melā draws on its roots of the yoga tradition to offer programs in self-transformation, yoga, meditation and holistic health.  

the space

Forget everything you think you know about what the practice of yoga is – or who can and cannot "do yoga" – because Melā breaks the paradigm of the traditional yoga studio.  

the community

Our founding and visiting faculty members are free-range teachers, encouraged to bring the fullest expression of their authentic voice in how and what they teach.  Eager to share the benefits of these teachings in community, they teach how to integrate it into our daily lives and loves.  

Our offerings are teacher-driven, allowing students to dive deep, to connect with a master teacher, and to bring us together in practice and play:

Class 6-Packs  – Six weeks of progressive, specialized instruction in a specific area of study and practice.  Students have an opportunity to connect with their teacher – and with one another – in community.

Workshops – Unique offerings by founding and visiting faculty members, usually in a half-day, full-day, or weekend format.  Longer chunks of time together means more time for interaction, questions, and discussion.

Teacher Trainings – Choose from a variety of Yoga Alliance Certified 200-hr and 500-hr modules, as well as courses that offer CE credits for current YA certificated teachers.

Live/Web Events – Larger community gatherings, movie nights, special guests, live and live-streaming events.
