Melissa became a Registered Yoga Teacher in 2016 and she has absolutely fallen in love with teaching yoga! Melissa offers an athletic power-flow class with creative sequencing, fun music, and an emphasis on strong and safe yoga practices. While her classes deliver a challenging physical experience, they also create a positive space to quiet the mind and calm the breathe. Melissa's yoga practice has taught her to become both strong and steady, kind and assertive, and most importantly, truly herself. Teaching yoga has proven to be the best gift; as it allows her to share her love for yoga, create one-of-a kind yoga classes, and help her students deepen their mind-body connections.

Samantha first discovered yoga after a running injury forced her to seek an alternative form of exercise in 2013. Yoga quickly grew into much more than exercise to her. This practice has remained a constant through years of changes, multiple moves, and major life transitions. It gave her the ability to come back to herself and feel grounded in her mind-body connection. As a therapist, Samantha saw the immense benefits of yoga on her own mental health awareness, and wanted to share these benefits with her clients. She decided to deepen her practice in early 2018 by traveling to Bali for 6 weeks to complete a 200-hour yoga teacher training through Yoga Alliance at Power Of Now Oasis. Samantha is excited to be back in Chicago to share this powerful practice! At True, Samantha teaches Girl Power Yoga.
