Melodie began Iyengar Yoga in the late 80’s after a 17 year career in Dance, teaching for the renown Limbs Dance Company and Performing musicals for Mercury Theatre. She was looking for something new. Iyengar Yoga captured her creative mind and disciplined body taking her on a journey of self discovery through yoga.
Since 1998, Melodie’s annual visits to the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute has allowed her to study directly with the Iyengar family. Over this time she has developed a yoga Centre in Herne Bay Auckland, built a strong Teacher Training Programme and is an Assessor and Moderator for the New Zealand Iyengar Association.
Melodie has taught workshops and Teacher Training Internationally in Brazil, Indonesia and Bali.
