Born in Switzerland, Mela is a yoga teacher, breathworker, holistic nutritionist and bodyworker. She is nowadays teaching internationally, sharing classes, workshops and retreats in India, Bali, Thailand, Spain and Switzerland.
Mela studied various styles of yoga from Ashtanga, to Kundalini and lived in spiritual communities throughout Asia. Her main practice is Kundalini Yoga, taught through Reinhard Gammenthaler, the last disciple of Dhirendra Brahmachari. It utilizes unique combinations of Asanas, Mudras, Bhandas and Pranayama. Kundalini Yoga and the power of the breath finally brought her a deeper understanding about herself and her work with the students.
Mela's greatest passion is all about the breath, in yoga, in breathwork, movement and sound. She also studied rebirthing breathwork with Leonard Orr and facilitates group breathwork ceremonies.
Mela loves combining her knowledge as a nurse, holistic bodyworker and nutritionist. Through living and studying abroad from different cultures and backgrounds, she integrates shamanic ancient traditions, western holistics approaches, tantric teachings and advaita vedanta.
In Mela's classes and workshops, students will be able to explore the depths of breath, trust, touch and an awareness of their whole body.
Let the beauty of what you love be what you do. Rumi
