Melissa Goodwin, E-RYT 200, RYT 500
Prajna Yoga Senior Instructor,
Certified Restorative Yoga Teacher
Melissa fell in love with yoga at the age of 10, when she and her mother attended a community yoga class. She is grateful to have found her long-time teachers, Tias and Surya Little, when she moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2007, and earned both her 200-hour and 500-hour teaching certifications through their Prajna Yoga program. Melissa also earned her Restorative Yoga Teacher Certification through Judith Hanson Lasater’s program in 2009. She taught for five years in Santa Fe before moving to Punta Gorda, Florida in 2013, where she joined the teaching staff at The Yoga Sanctuary. Always a student, Melissa is currently exploring how various yoga practices can assist in healing brain trauma and nervous system dysfunction.
