About the instructor, Melissa Lido, RYT 500

Melissa has been practicing yoga for over ten years. In 2008 she was inspired to deepen her practice through Yoga Garden’s Live Your Yoga Teacher Training.

Melissa’s mission is to provide students with opportunities to discover new possibilities and transform themselves spiritually, mentally, and physically through the science of yoga. Melissa’s classes come from a place of patience, love, and joy. She offers her students creative and well-rounded classes. By cultivating a supportive class environment, she encourages students to be true to themselves, acknowledge and honor the teacher within, and tap into that deep awareness that ultimately leads to self-realization.

Melissa has a special interest in restorative yoga, and holds a certification in this specialty area from the NC School of Yoga. Additionally she has had the privilege to study with several master teachers including, Dharma Richards, Sri Dharma Mittra (Classical Hatha Raja Yoga) and Judith Hanson Lasater (Restorative Yoga).
