MELANIE BOYER (E-RYT 200/E-RYT 500)

Melanie began her journey with Yoga more than 18 years ago, what started as a merely physical yoga practice evolved rather quickly into something much deeper – a connection to an ancient science.  Melanie went on to complete her first teacher training in Hatha Yoga in her hometown of Southern California in 2001. She studied the Ashtanga Yoga system with David Swenson, Tim Miller, Lino Miele and David Williams. From there, she participated in mulitiple workshops and trainings in the U.S.A and internationally. In Italy she participated in Vipassana Meditation (as taught by S.N. Goenka) and felt wanted go deeper into the heart of yoga. In 2002, she headed to Kerela, India for a two-month yoga intensive, and after traveling around southern India she discovered KYM (Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram), a school set up by TKV Desikachar as a tribute to his father, the great acharya Tirumalai Krishnamacharya. It was then and there she knew she had found her roots to yoga and decided this was school where she would peruse her studies.

KRISHNAMACHARYA YOGA MANDIRAM (KYM)

KYM is located in Chennai, India and is a school dedicated to yoga through the lineage of Krishnamacharya. Since its beginning, has been known for quality teaching respecting the needs, interests, and abilities of its students.  KYM has played a key role in popularizing yoga as a holistic science derived from a well founded theoretical basis, as not just exercises for physical fitness . The concept of KYM is that anyone who wants to, can practice yoga and that yoga adapts to the individual not the other way around.  For more information, visit www.kym.org.

 

In 2009, Melanie participated KYM's first 600 hour International Teacher Training in the lineage of Krishnamacharya. She chose this lineage for its practical, therapeutic and effective benefits that give modern applications which are grounded in tradition. Since then she has traveled to India annually and to take various workshops, programs and intensives. Melanie is a member of Yoga Alliance and IAYT (International Association of Yoga Therapists) and currently studies Vedic Chanting, Yoga Therapy and Yoga Sutras with her teachers at KYM and her mentor in Mexico. Melanie teaches private and group yoga in Punta de Mita and surrounding areas. 

PILATES (MAT AND EQUIPMENT)

Melanie took her first pilates class in 2001 and immediately connected to this intelligence discipline.  She found pilates to be a great compliment to all physical fitnesses and completely different than yoga. From there she continued to take reformer and mat classes on and off during the years.  After moving to Mexico in 2004, she reconnected with this wonderful mind-body exercise and decided to become a teacher.  Melanie studied Pilates at Long Beach Dance Conditioning (LBDC) in California, after three long years of training she became a certified Pilates Instructor (equipment and mat) in the Pilates Leadership Concept by master teacher Marie José Blom-Lawrence.  Melanie chose to train at LBDC because of their strong therapeutic approach to Pilates and continues to study today, attending workshops and trainings whenever possible.  

Melanie is also a certified Post-Rehabilitative Breast Cancer Exercise Specialist from the Pink Ribbon Program which is a post-operative workout program designed to enhance recovery for breast cancer survivors.

Melanie is the best there is for both yoga and Pilates. She is extremely
well trained in both disciplines, along with being highly professional and
attentive in both her private and group classes both of which I have taken
for many years now. She inspires trust and confidence in your personal
abilities thru her teaching methods and we are very lucky to have such an
amazing instructor in Punta de Mita.
