Melissa is the creator of Blissful By Melissa, a health and wellness company dedicated to bringing bliss to peoples lives through SUP yoga, yoga, reiki, and meditation! Since a young child, Melissa had been drawn to the freedom and healing qualities of being out on the water. Throughout her life, Melissa had a deep desire to share these precious gifts with others but wasn’t quite sure how, until she took her first SUP yoga class! Her first time practicing yoga on a paddle board was magical, combining her two great loves was a match made in heaven. As time went on it was only natural for Melissa to expand her yoga practice by attending a SUP Yoga Teacher Training in Miami, as soon as she returned home she couldn’t wait to share all of the knowledge and bliss with the community. Melissa has truly loved offering classes and trainings on the water and loves encouraging, inspiring and empowering people to deepen their connection to themselves and nature.
Melissa designed this program for everyone, not just yoga teachers! Melissa had a deep desire to create a program that will help you build your knowledge and confidence on the water. Trainings are kept small so there is plenty of one on one time, time for questions and support.
Melissa is a Yoga Alliance registered E-RYT 200 Yoga teacher who completed a private SUP Yoga Teacher Training through Yoga-Water and has offered over 3,000 SUP yoga and yoga classes and trainings throughout Connecticut over the last 6 years. In her free time, you can find Melissa playing on her paddle board, traveling, spending time outdoors, dreaming about Bali and spending time with family and friends.
