Bio: Melina Meza, BS Nutrition, 500-RYT, has been exploring the art and science of yoga and nutrition for over 16 years. She combines her knowledge of Hatha Yoga, Ayurveda, whole foods nutrition, and healthy lifestyle promotion into a unique style called Seasonal Vinyasa. She has been teaching yoga full time at 8 Limbs Yoga Centers (Seattle, Washington) since 1997, Co-Directs the 8 Limbs Teachers’ Training Program, and holds a bachelor’s degree in Nutrition from Bastyr University.
In addition to leading group classes, workshops, and private sessions, Melina facilitates year-round yoga retreats in extraordinary sanctuaries around the world. Her continual growth as a teacher and practitioner has been influenced by studying with numerous instructors, including Svoboda, Scott Blossom, Sarah Powers, Jin Sung, Gary Kraftsow, and Kathleen Hunt. Retreats and sabbaticals are also vital to Melina’s personal practice and bring her deeper reflection and inspiration.
Melina is the author of the Art of Sequencing book. She has also created the Yoga for the Seasons video series, which premiered in September 2009 with the release of the Fall Vinyasa DVD. Both the book and the videos are practical, affordable, and enjoyable wellness tools that can help practitioners connect to physical health on an ongoing basis.
While attending Bastyr, she found what her body, mind, and spirit had been waiting for—yoga. From her very first class in 1993, she have never stopped exploring the physical, mental, and spiritual practices passed down from the ancient sages. Yoga has been the “launching pad”—as one of her teachers Gary Kraftsow describes it—that has rocketed her into a life journey of cultivating the disciplines necessary to gain insight and wisdom necessary to be healthy, compassionate, and radiant, and then how to share those gifts with others.
