Melody was born and raised in Paris and Cannes, France. She first started visiting the United States, attending the Bollettieri Academy in Florida, when she was very young in pursuit of a career in tennis. This culminated in a 4 year NCAA Division 1 tennis scholarship. In 2006, Melody discovered yoga while she was seeking to fix some of the recurrent pain that came as a result of 15+ years of playing through repeated injuries to the shoulder, elbow and knees. She experienced relief and became devoted to deepening her practice to include aspects beyond just the physical realm of her body. She now shares the healing experience that she has experienced with her students.
