300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training : Announcing Melissa Curtis

Melissa has been teaching women yoga for over 15 years and is a Mother to 3 children. Having started yoga in her 20’s in San Francisco, Melissa’s yoga journey has been fairly colourful. She is a fully trained Bikram, Hatha, Yin, Pre & Postnatal Yoga teacher, Kids yoga teacher, Pilates teacher, Infant Massage Instructor and Cuidiu breastfeeding counsellor.


Melissa is very passionate about birth which led her to start facilitating birth preparation classes, complete a doula and postnatal doula training and a Well Woman/Womb Yoga training with the well-known women’s health advocate, Uma Dinsmore-Tuli.


Melissa’s passion for women’s health is obvious regardless of what style of yoga she is teaching due to her nurturing approach and being able to respond to the needs of women’s health issues.  Whether in or out of the yoga room and knowing well how challenging life can be, Melissa loves to empower and support women from all walks of life.
