Melissa Ferrigno began practicing yoga about 8 years ago. She was looking for an outlet to help balance all her day to day tasks while reducing stress and countering her other workout activities. After her first vinyasa yoga flow class she was hooked! She had found a place where she could let go and focus on her connection of mind, body, and spirit while also toning and strengthening her body. Melissa wanted to deepen her practice and learn more about the history and philosophy behind yoga and signed up for her 200 hour teacher training at Breathing Room in South Portland. Whether it is your first time walking into a yoga class, or you have been practicing for years, Melissa hopes that each student is able to come to class, let go of their busy lives, and become reconnected to their breathe and body. In addition to her 200 hour training, Melissa is also certified in Restorative yoga, children’s yoga, and Reiki.
