Our Student Testimonials

Without each unique individual student, our institute would not be who we are today. Our Vision is our north star that leads our actions from the drawing board to the classroom. And, we could not make the difference we want to make without our students. Their voice is our guiding voice and a true reflection of who we are. Each of our testimonials tells us what we get right, and what to get better. 

So who better to share with you than our students and clients!

Melanie delivers. I was afforded a safe place to practice self love and to see my reflection through my styles of being while learning teacher training. I was lead on a journey that helped me understand what it means to practice Vini Yoga and its lifestyle. You get it not only because you achieve a developed foundational Vini yoga program, you get it because Melanie ensures your understanding practically, and theoretically. The special parts of Melanie's program are demonstrated through her expertise of working with people where they are at. It takes a very knowledgeable and curious teacher to understand the multitude of complexities people have and Melanie is this master in breaking it down as she has herself walked and shared her experiences from trauma stories to love stories. Melanie delivers from her heart and her experiences are shared through skillful and thought provoking ways to ensure you absorb the intention of her material in the moments. Melanie is an expert and proactive teacher in that she sees you before you see yourself in many ways. I was challenged every moment with Melanie because I met my teacher, the reflection was quite disturbing some days and blissfully awakening others, and as I continue to evolve I often seek out Melanie and her experience to draw my attentions inwards and to resolve my traumatic experiences with a person who will meet me there and hold the space of me to transform what ever part of my constitution I'm working to resolve. Melanie is a leader in my experience and opinion, in more than the professional contributions she makes daily to developing a comprehensive and ever evolving program to support yogis on their interpersonal journey, in that she believes by ensuring you have the foundations and some pretty profound transformational experiences you will then have to share with the persons you serve. Melanie is truly making a difference in the lives of the people she serves as I know she has in mine. Thank you Melanie.

Build the world you dream of in your heart and in your mind. Leave things a little better from the challenges you find.

Stretch yourself in directions you wouldn’t always go. And you will find new purpose and ways that you can grow.

These are the seeds I’ve planted and sometimes seen come true. Not only in my own life but in my children (and students) too. 

Just as one dream is ending another one can begin. Fueled by love and memories and strength you have within.
