About Your Yoga Instructors:
Mel has been practicing yoga for nearly two decades in Colorado and abroad. After working for several years in a corporate marketing setting, sneaking her practice in when she could, Mel released her ties to conventional life and embarked upon a yogic journey. She became a yoga teacher and an entrepreneur. First, she founded and operated Love Grown Wellness to support her love for yoga, later expanding her business to include her marketing and public relations background, now owning Love Grown Wellness & Marketing.
Mel believes that the physical asana practice is very important; however, the pranayama (breathwork), meditation, and intention setting are key points in every class. Mel’s yoga offerings embody the true meaning of the practice by enveloping a mind-body connection. Mel blends her time on the mat with a deep-rooted passion for travel. She leads domestic and international retreats several times each year.
Elizabeth (EJ) will be joining our retreat as an additional leader. She will lead Yin and sound baths for the afternoon/evening classes each day.
