Melody Van Kay

Melody’s vision for building an authentic, welcoming Yoga community led her to purchase Island Salt Air in 2018. She is a Tier Two Certified Baptiste Power Yoga Educator, Yoga Alliance registered RYT 500, E-RYT 200, and YAECP. 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.
