Melanie Ashley

Melanie is a registered Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance UK. This accreditation demonstrates excellent standards as set by Yoga Alliance UK. having trained in India and Thailand on and off for over 10 years and taught for 8.

She initially trained in advanced Thai Yoga Massage therapy techniques, followed by Ashtanga Yoga with Michael Gannon before going to Mysore to practice with Sharath Jois – the Grandson of Sri K Pattabhi Jois.  Her more recent training has been in Kaivalyadham with Shri K Tiwariji where she became one of very few certified teachers of classical Pranayama. She has also coming to the end of her studies in Yoga Therapy with Ganesh Mohan of SVASTA Yoga.  These, together with influences from Danny Paradise, Paul Dallaghan, Joey Miles and Charlie-Taylor-Rugman means that Melanie’s classes have a strong traditional edge yet light  hearted, full of experimentation and adventure  to create balanced, transformational yoga programmes.

Today, Melanie combines these skills together to offer therapeutic and health regeneration through using traditional tools and techniques with senior executives, mothers, mentally and physically disabled, people in respite care and people who just want to be fit, keep healthy.  The common thread is to help people to find and maintain their zest for life through the practice of yoga.

“I am constantly surprised and fascinated about the power of yoga, meaning that so many people have been able to enrich their personal and professional lives to achieve more than they could personally dreamed of.  I can honestly say that I feel privileged to be able to share this practice and to be a facilitator in peoples growth. My heart goes out in deep thanks to all my teachers and people who I have been able to share the discipline of yoga with. And the best thing … the learning and growth is never ending.”
