Walking the journey with you
Melanie Taylor – The founder of Life of Wellness Institute
A mom of 2 university students, and a wife of 23 years. As a child, Melanie felt like she was the reason everyone around her was in pain… so she tried really hard to be perfect in every way. That led to constant judgment, burnout, binge eating and dissociation from her body. She experienced anxiety, depression, pain, and self-loathing and was at the cross roads, of “do I give up” and “there has to be freedom”. It is here at the fork that she knew she had to fight for her survival and discovered how to be free from the suffering they bring.
She has been supporting clients as a Transformational Coach for more than 25 years, and is also a certified Yoga Teacher Trainer, Mindfulness Stress Reduction Therapist, Yoga and Thai Massage Therapist.
Her personal journey includes 25+ years with Hatha, Therapeutic Embodiment and ViniYoga, and is one of reclaiming herself and awakening her inner awareness and strength.
