Mel Gorman Wegimont

Mel Gorman Wegimont is a hatha and vinyasa yoga teacher who wears her zest for life like a sparkly jacket. She became a student of yoga and the healing arts in 1999, when a friend brought her – one week after a breast-cancer diagnosis – to Kendall Sheldon's yoga class. In that first class Mel discovered the healing power of yoga, and today she is not only radiantly healthy but also joyfully sharing the healing benefits of yoga with students and mentoring others coping with cancer. Mel’s journey with yoga has taken her to India and beyond. She completed her 200-hour teacher training with Cathy Cesario of Spirit Tree Yoga and her 500-hour Prana Flow® teacher training with Coral Brown. She is also certified in Reiki I and II.

 

Mel’s alignment-based yoga practice and teaching are formed by study with numerous teachers, and focus on safety, ease and joy, awareness, breath, and flow. In her classes students encounter a mixture of levity, reverence, and honesty as Mel guides them to their own experience of yoga. She encourages students to take their yoga – this practice of finding what they need in body, spirit, and heart – off their mats and into their lives.



Mel Gorman Wegimont instructs the following:
  • Stretch + Breathe
