Say hello to our lovely

Yoga Practicioners

MELISSA MASSELLO

500 RYT

Yoga Therapy Intern

Melissa Massello is a trauma-informed, body positive yoga teacher (RYT-500) and yoga therapy intern (IAYT) as well as a former professional figure skater and wellness editor. Melissa’s classes focus on a therapeutic, functional, and holistic approach to yoga with an emphasis on bringing balance and ease back to the body—especially for those suffering from chronic pain or nervous system dysregulation. 

As an athlete turned desk jockey and person living with hypermobile Ehlers Danlos syndrome (hEDS), Melissa is no stranger to injury and chronic illness and she found many years ago in her own body that the therapeutic application of yoga as a lifestyle can be the key to reducing suffering, increasing joy, and moving from languishing to flourishing.

Amanda takes pride in teaching a Yin Yoga class that welcomes everyone, regardless of their prior yoga experience. Amanda firmly believes that time on the mat serves as a practice for all facets of life.

Beyond Amanda’s yoga practice, she is also an advanced EFT/Tapping Practitioner and operates an HR Consulting Business. Join Amanda on the mat to explore the art of stillness, mindfulness, and balance, nurturing both body and soul.

MORGAN ASHLEY

200 RYT

Morgan is a yoga teacher, singer-songwriter, wannabe philosopher/rockstar that grew up all over Texas. She landed in Austin, Texas in early 2011 and has spent most of her adult life here between little hops around the world. In 2019, she did her 200RYT training in Bali before she left ATX on a crazy adventure to Costa Rica where she spent about 2 years there fully immersed in living her dreams of traveling, playing music, and teaching yoga in various settings -- retreat centers, luxury hotels, beachside local, etc. Her style has evolved from Hatha vinyasa training into something entirely her own. She likes to teach slow, stretchy flows inspired by both Hatha and vinyasa with an added flare of her favorite gift of yoga - peace and love. Her classes focus on ease, self love and relief of resting in long postures to feel their benefits. 

Morgan has completed a Holy Fire Reiki certification as well as a Yoga & Life Coaching certification. She incorporates lessons from all of her trainings into classes like setting intentions to encouraging students to lean into their bodies and out of their minds.
