Hi, I am Melissa Scagliarini, your retreat host.
Melissa been practicing yoga for over 20 years and teaching for more than a decade. She is the founder and owner of Satya Yoga Studio. Alongside extensive experience, formal training, and an in depth understanding of human physiology, Melissa brings humor and warmth to each of the classes she teaches. She has been trained in multiple traditions by some of the leading teachers in yoga. In 2017, Melissa became a certified Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist through the Himalayan Institute. In 2010, Melissa traveled to India to participate in a month long Advanced Yoga Training, also through The Himalayan Institute. Traveling to the geographical heart of yoga was a personal and professional milestone for Melissa—a true lesson in Yoga off the mat. Melissa learned to look at herself with a bit more softness and love and was able to truly practice letting go of attachments.
