Yoga Retreat

Melissa has been teaching yoga and meditation for over ten years,

in the form of classes, retreats and workshops in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland town of Maleny. Melissa’s studies to become a yoga teacher began with Adam and Akash Bornstein of Radiant Light Yoga. It ignited a passion for yoga and all that it entails.

Created with the intention to begin and complete the flow in one session.

Giving an intimate class/studio feel, just like you are participating in a class @ Melissa’s Healing Space.
