My name is Melissa and I have been practicing yoga since I was a teenager. My practiced deepened with personal struggles with endometriosis and cervical cancer.

Padmavati is my spiritual name and it means keeper or holder of the lotus flowers and foster mother. This name suits me well as I strive to bring my compassion, empathy and kindness to my students. I ensure everyone practices yoga in a safe, welcoming and encouraging environment.

I am trained in classical hatha yoga through the Sivananda lineage. I have additional training in chair yoga, restorative yoga and over 100 hours of prenatal ,postnatal yoga and yoga for conception (fertility) training.

I am a certified birth/labour and postpartum doula. I support those pregnant and their families in their birth preferences and help welcome new life into this world.

My focus is on all things prenatal. It brings me great joy to share in the journey’s of others during this important time in their lives.
