Melody Henry, born and raised in Brooklyn, NYC, is a 500-hour RYT who has been practicing yoga for 25 years and teaching yoga for 15. She's been featured on international arts and news media site Vice, in Time Out magazine and in other varied magazines and media, with topics ranging from yoga to Crossfit to wellness. Her specialty is Vinyasa yoga and she approaches yoga from the inside out, focusing on the breath and the place where breath and movement come together to create a perfect harmony and raises us to a higher vibration. Having come from a dark past, Melody absolutely believes that we must acknowledge and embrace our dark side in order to get through to the light. She holds unlikely workshops combining things like black metal music and yoga done in the dark, to dharma talks that make you face the things that have hurt you so that you can move on from them, as trauma, abuse, depression and anxiety all live in the body as well as the mind and they must be dealt with in order to move to a brighter place. She has helped countless people to replace negativity in their lives with positivity.

Melody is also a certified Reiki healer (traditional Japanese) and works on both humans and animals, a certified Pilates instructor, a life, health and wellness coach, personal trainer and teaches other forms of body movement in classes and privates. She also studies Sanskrit as well as teaching beginner's Sanskrit to up and coming yoga teachers, and is a crystal whisperer who has also been reading tarot cards for select clients for over 20 years.
