Melissa Schwenk

Melissa Schwenk (RYT) began her practice of yoga after time in the culinary industry left her body and mind in need of positive changes. Through yoga she continues to discover a space for clarity of mind and the deep understanding that we are all connected.

She completed her 200 HR hatha yoga teacher training with the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Organization in Grass Valley, CA. She has also completed a 95 HR children’s yoga teacher training with Mission Propelle here in her beloved city of Chicago.

Melissa brings a sense of playfulness into her teaching whether with children or adults. Melissa believes that when we connect to our breath and show compassion for ourselves, we can dissolve barriers within and to the world around us. Melissa believes there is beauty in silence and always strives to make each class accessible to everyone.
