About Me

Melody is a native New Yorker who came to Charleston in 2005 and immediately fell in love with all things the city had to offer, especially the slower pace of life. With the help of some friends, she was introduced to the multitude of benefits that Yoga has to offer and so began her practice in 2010. She continues to take joy in learning new things about herself and how to cultivate the balance between mind, body, and spirit on a regular basis.

With 14 plus years in public schools as a teacher, Instructional Coach, Transformation Specialist, and certified school administrator, Melody is no stranger to the challenges that our children face today. She struggled with feeling as though she was limited in what she could do for children in her position given the constraints of public education. This “karmically” brought her to find the Kidding Around Yoga method. It was something that allowed her to combine all of her passions, education, and career experiences into a neat package that made sense!

Melody has always valued creativity, the ability to foster positive self-talk and encouraged expression of individuality with each child she’s met. KAY classes are a safe place where all of these things can happen, intertwined with the physical benefits of Yoga. It truly is a place where she finds herself feeling like she is making a difference in the lives of young people! Melody has completed her 200-hour RYT training at Holy Cow Yoga Center, is a certified children’s Yoga teacher and a trainer with Kidding Around Yoga. She is now armed to tackle spreading the love, kindness, and compassion to each and every kiddo so they too can feel empowered to live a happy and healthy lifestyle.

The Magic of Kidding Around Yoga

When children experience KAY classes, they are not only building physical strength and flexibility, they are learning skills that will provide mental and emotional benefits throughout their lives! The magic of Kidding Around Yoga is our unique class programming. KAY teachers are experts in meeting each child’s needs, providing creative activities, games, songs, and crafts based on traditional yoga and meditation practices.

Our children live in a busy world and KAY classes are an oasis providing a safe place to be creative, move freely, and experience calm. We look forward to being part of your child’s day!

Girl Scouts

Hello local Scouts and neighborhood leaders!

I would love the opportunity to introduce the Science of Yoga to your troop/den and help them earn a Yoga Fun Patch.

While teaching the Science of Yoga, KAY provides a curriculum that is specifically designed to help children be active, learn to relax, improve focus, and have FUN in a non-competitive environment. I will offer a class customized for your troop level, which can include a special scout story, meditation techniques, games, activities, and much more!

I teach all troop/den levels and can even do a private sessions as well.

I look forward to hearing from your organization to schedule a class soon.
