About Melody

Melody’s vision for building an authentic, welcoming Yoga community led her to purchase Island Salt Air in 2018. She is an accredited Baptiste Power Yoga instructor, Yoga Alliance nationally certified E-RYT200, and a Continuing Education Provider. She developed and continues to lead Island Salt Air Yoga 200 hour Teacher Training, the first Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga School in Galveston Texas. In her yearning to deepen her practice and knowledge of yoga, Melody studied with the Baptiste Power Yoga founder Baron Baptiste to complete Level One Certification and continues to study under Baron and his Master teachers in advanced leadership trainings. After many years of practice and study, Baptiste Power methodology became evident as her personal platform for connection. The Baptiste principles give a place where we can show up as our authentic selves. The guiding principles of Baptiste Power Yoga are truly about living the practice off of the mat. Melody’s vision is to bring this to others. Working from true authenticity the possibility of great things becomes a reality. She believes that through our physical practice of yoga the real work of yoga begins; training the mind to act with intention, compassion, and grace in all situations. She believes that what we learn on the mat transforms not only our physical bodies but allows us to gain a deeper connection to our true selves, the powerful, loving being within all of us

Why Baptiste?

The practice of Baptiste Power Yoga was created and continues to be led by Baron Baptiste, son of Walt and Magana Baptiste who founded Baptiste Yoga™ in the 1940’s. From his years of study under master teachers Iyengar and Desikachar, Baron created Baptiste Power Yoga. The practice is accessible to everyone regardless of fitness level, age, experience or background. Baptiste Power Yoga will support you to raise your vitality and physical power, and will empower you to create accelerated results in your overall body strength and confidence.
