Melody Le Goff
Melody (RYT 200) was born and raised in Paris and Cannes, France. She first started visiting the United States, attending the Bollettieri Academy in Florida, when she was very young in pursuit of a career in tennis. This culminated in a 4 year NCAA Division 1 tennis scholarship. In 2006, Melody discovered yoga while she was seeking to fix some of the recurrent pain that came as a result of 15+ years of playing through repeated injuries to the shoulder, elbow and knees. She experienced immediate relief and became devoted to deepening her practice to include aspects beyond just the physical realm of her body. She now shares the healing experience that she has experienced with her students.
After years of building a successful career in business, earning a spot as a Regional Managing Director for a large International Corporation, Melody decided it was time to make a shift and follow her passion as well as practice what she preached. Melody earned her 200-hour Yoga Alliance Hatha teaching certification through Elka Yoga & Wellness Center. Melody has studied many styles and practiced in several countries around the world with many teachers to deepen her practice in yoga, meditation, breath and energy work.
Melody teaches a range of classes from Restorative, Yin/Yang to Vinyasa. She encourages all students to focus on connection with the breath first, followed by the strength and flexibility that come from proper posture alignment.
