She was a co-founder of The Heart of Yoga Association and is a graduate of the American Viniyoga Institute E-RYT 200. Melissa had the honor of accompanying U.G. Krishnamurti, a Jivamukti, in his travels during the last five years of his life and is the author of “No Teaching Yoga: The Authentic Guide,” published by Gatherinsight, a reflection of her spiritual journey. Recently, her Yantra artwork was acknowledged in December 2016 issue of Yoga Journal magazine for the suggested buyers list, September 2017 article called “Power of Design”, and illustrates the 2017 release of Karttikeyan Yogic Method, author Samyama, published by Balboa Press, among other publications.
