Power Hour


This class is taught by:

Melissa Howard

Melissa's been practicing yoga since before she really knew she was practicing yoga. She worked on crow and handstand in her front yard as a young girl and begged her mother to put her in gymnastics. Her mother finally gave in and from 7th grade until 12th grade Melissa practiced gymnastics. After graduating high school she continued this love of gymnastics, for 2 years, by teaching tumbling classes to children. It wasn't until 2001 that Melissa stepped into her first yoga class and after several months of finding the right class, she knew she was hooked. Yoga helped her though depression and anxiety, as well as many of life's milestones. By 2010 she decided she wanted to teach yoga and share this gift that she so cherished. She completed her 200 hr RYT at Dharma Yoga Studios with the love and guidance of Chris Brown. She continued on her learning journey by completing her 300 hour RYT at Asheville Yoga Center with the help of Stephanie Keach. Also getting a certification in Prenatal Yoga and Children's Yoga. Melissa loves teaching Flow as well as Yin/Restorative and continues to grow herself as a teacher to better benefit her students. In addition to her yoga certifications she is also certified in Mat 1 and Mat 2 Pilates. When Melissa is not on her mat, she's running, cycling or hanging out with her husband and 3 kids.

Hope Brooks

Hope's love of Yoga started in 2010, specifically Hot Vinyasa Flow, what Yoga did for her mind and body made her a regular practitioner. Reducing headaches and strengthening her hyper-mobile joints are only two ways Yoga has improved her life. She seeks out Advanced Vinyasa classes and grows the diversity of her own practice with many wonderful teachers and friends.

In 2013 Hope attended Zanti Power Yoga's Teacher Training and became certified through Yoga Alliance, RYT 200.
