Teacher Feature: Melissa Kirschner

Our latest teacher feature is YFAB yoga teacher, Melissa Kirschner.  Read on as Melissa shares some fun facts about herself with our community! 

1. I took my first yoga class in college almost 15 years ago…and didn’t like it at all! I could not get my inhales and exhales to match the teacher’s cues. I reluctantly returned to the mat three years later and I’m so glad I did–I have been practicing ever since!

2. I LOVE travel. Aside from yoga it is truly my passion. Especially international travel and experiencing new cultures.

3. I work, in addition to teaching yoga, in study abroad 🙂

 4. I was an art major in college and still enjoy drawing and painting…when I can find the time!

Read more about Melissa Kirschner in her full bio below: 

After over a decade of practicing yoga, Melissa Kirschner was inspired to deepen her practice by participating in OmBodies teacher training program. It was a transformational experience! Not only did she learn more about her own practice, but came to realize how much she enjoyed teaching and sharing yoga with others.

Melissa’s goal as a yoga instructor is to make yoga accessible to everyone, with a particular interest in sharing yoga with underserved populations. Her classes focus on alignment, breath, and providing space for students to explore each pose. Students can expect a balance of effort and ease, and to leave class feeling more relaxed and centered.
