Melanie has been teaching hatha yoga since 2000. Her main influence has been the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli. She hosts annual weekend workshops  with  John Stirk and Bill Wood, and explores movement with Linda Hartley  (Authentic Movement) . 


Yoga  classes, workshops and residentials will explore ways of working using the ground, the breath, the space and the spine, to enhance and deepen the experience. Melanie's teaching has evolved during her search for a more exploratory and creative way of moving and being.  Unwinding more fully and freely, as we discover together a natural and easeful way of being in our bodies. Melanie also offers 1 to 1.

Melanie Willsher graduated with a B.A. from University of Cape Town, completed a two-year postgraduate diploma in Music Therapy at UCT College of Music, and studied for her PGCE at University of East Anglia.
