Melissa Brown is excited to be teaching Yoga at Dance Connection. She grew up taking dance classes on the east side of Indianapolis, including Jazz, Ballet, and Tumbling. It was during her middle school and high school years of cheerleading that she first began to practice Yoga. She felt her Yoga practice was a great complement to her cheerleading in aiding her body to stretch and helping her mind to focus academically. Melissa completed her 200-hr Yoga certification at Invoke Studio in 2013 and is a registered instructor with Yoga Alliance. Melissa enjoys being able to offer a piece of calm and comfort to her students. Her classes incorporate breathing practices and guided meditation techniques that her students can utilize both on and off their mats. She also likes to incorporate essential oils for an added layer of relaxation. Melissa’s goal is always for you to leave her class feeling well-stretched, a little lighter, and more centered.
She has a heart for teaching students of all ages, but feels privileged for this opportunity to teach Yoga to kids and young adults. She has an associate’s degree in Youth Work as well as an undergraduate degree in Applied Mathematics. She is currently pursuing her law degree and certification in Invoke Studio’s Bar-Effect™ classes.
