Teacher Training Facilitator
Melanie Smith is a Yoga Alliance registered RYT-500. Melanie has quickly begun to travel the world sharing her passion for the practice of yoga on land and on the water. Her fun loving classes are a spiritual journey with one part breathe work, one part alignment, another part humor; then mixed with an eclectic soundtrack, and sprinkled with a handful of LOVE. Melanie has been facilitating Stoked Yogi SUP Yoga teacher trainings since 2016 and is leading the way with SUP Yoga in the northeast region.
Melanie launched her current yoga business under the moniker “Miss Melanie Yoga LLC” which includes her teachings in the studio, as well as launching her Stand Up Paddle Board Business, hosting SUP Yoga classes, retreats and retail sales of Glide boards. She fell in love with Stand Up Paddle Boarding during a trip St. John USVI which led to her to becoming a certified SUP Yoga teacher. The practice of yoga has inspired Melanie to continually step out of her comfort zone, challenging the ideas of what life and work should look like. Her purpose in practice is not perfecting every yoga pose but creating a lifetime journey in which yoga enhances everyday life, making dreams a reality.
