Melanie at Life of Wellness has been a mentor of mine for just over 2 years now. She has mentored me through my 200hr yoga teacher training as well as my Thai massage therapy training. Melanie holds a vast wealth of knowledge in many different aspects and is very supportive in helping her students succeed. She is such a kind, compassionate and caring soul. I am honored to have had her as a mentor, teacher, and friend over these past few years!
Melanie was a key part of my Yoga Teacher Training experience. She taught with kindness, empathy and skill. I hope to embody those qualities as a yoga teacher myself. I would highly recommend taking any classes from Mel.Kristen PowellFounderResonance Art Studio
Melanie is a true gift in our community! Great person all around, and you will definitely leave feeling happy and complete! Highly recommend.Heather CowieAirdrie Family Eye Doctors
Melanie Taylor invited Safe4Life into her home studio to offer our self-defense message to her network. It was an amazing experience to be with her for those few hours. She is gracious, gifted, warm and authentic - definitely the real deal! She does amazing work and I truly am excited as we plan for more events together. Thank you, Melanie, you are a gem!Lorna SeligSafe4Life
I have been a client of Life of Wellness since September 2017 and I am a huge fan of how Melanie uses curiosity to draw out of me the answers to my own questions. Her gentle, compassionate nature and keen awareness for what is needed in each session is a beautiful thing to experience. I always left my appointments with clarity, self-compassion and a drive for action, my effectiveness in life saw huge growth.Airdrie Exchange Connection ChannelAirdrie Exchange
Did a yoga session with Melanie, I was extremely tight and was limping due to ongoing gluteus max. pains... At the end of the session, I was still in pain but more relaxed. She asked me how I felt, I told her; right then and there she said to stay for 5 minutes, she proceeded in giving me a 5-minute Thai massage (never experienced this before), and when she was done I felt relief (which has NEVER happened after hour-long regular massages). I had to rave about this because my outlook on massages changed drastically.
I’d like to thank Melanie at Life of Wellness for making a very thoughtful and generous donation to Airdrie’s 4th Annual Unmask Mental Health fundraiser. I also had a session with Melanie and it was very helpful and relaxing which is hard for me to do, relax that is. Thanks Melanie!Mike LoughmanUnmask Mental Health
I saw Melanie for coaching in the fall of 2017, I loved how she was a curious bystander asking me the questions I needed to ponder. On any given appointment she read my needs and provided the grounding exercise, meditation, brainstorming, stretching and or Thai massage and I would walk out of my appointments absolutely fresh and ready to take on my world. She instilled a sense of self-compassion and reinforced consistently everything I need, is already in me. Great experience, highly recommend.
Melanie Taylor is truly gifted at her craft! This massage is amazing and beyond relaxing. I highly recommend. xoLenora CollinsLet's Connect
Melanie is a role model to me in mothership and cares for her clients in a way that always has them feeling listened to and well understood. I have had the honor of learning yoga teacher training from Melanie and we both share a passion for bringing tools to our clients for stress reduction, the empowerment humanity and trauma-informed practices. Melanie is a key support person for those of us in this community and has volunteered endless hours of time to better the community and support the people who are part of it.
Had a mini Thai Massage at the Farmers market today. Amazing, Melanie helped me get rid of a headache I've had for 3 days. Thank you.Charlotte BlackwellWorld Castle Publishing
You will no be disappointed by booking time for yourself. Melanie Taylor is so good at what she does and her compassion for healing others is so strong.Michelle EdgarSope for Hope
The staff enjoyed the workshop and overall I believe they are acknowledging their stress and handling it better. Our industry like many has stress and then combines it with busy lives and it can be a lot to handle.Janette KaminskiPlatinum Insurance
I started as a student of Melanie's in Jan 2018 during my 200 hr yoga teacher training and loved her so much that we became co-facilitators of an embodiment and mindfulness focused program this past year! Melanie is able to connect with people through her vulnerability and compassion; she meets her students where they are at and is a beacon of light towards a newfound experience of empowerment and self-love. Thank you for continuing to challenge and support me in all I am up to in the world, Mel!Sherri StokesFounder and Yoga TeacherOasis Within
Melanie is such a wonderful teacher and what’s more, is she uses her whole heart in her teachings which make her classes authentic and real!
I just wanted to send a personal note of gratitude for the past four weeks. You cultivated such a safe, transparent environment for us to learn and be vulnerable. Although we have never met, I always left the class feeling like I have known you forever! Your voice will now be another opportunity for me to resource with the intention of seeking comfort and peace. Your soul is full of light, and I am so grateful to have learned from you. I hope to see you at a campfire talk in the future. Again, thank you & namaste!
Thank you so much for your amazing teachings. I understand now and know how to properly breathe moving forward. Forever grateful
