With 20 years experience in the field of yoga and mindfulness, Melissa is a leading authority on healing and growth. As a leader and the founder of Breathe With Me Yoga, Melissa has influenced thousands of kids to connect with their mind, body and spirit through breathing, relaxation and mindfulness. As a speaker, coach, and author, and the founder of Rise2Wellness Inc., she uses her own experience with postpartum depression and anxiety to work with a wide range of individuals inspiring and empowering them to navigate – and overcome – stress, anxiety and depression. As a founding partner of the League of Giants, Melissa is on a mission to change 100 million lives.
After helping her son navigate anxiety at an early age and spending time in the classroom with so many children, it became Melissa’s biggest passion to help children and their parents navigate their way through anxiety, bullying and positivity. Melissa has helped countless families to find strategies that work. It has also become her passion to help all women step into their purpose and power. Melissa is the host of Story Time Yoga (for children 5-9 years and families 2-9 years) on the Roku, Apple and Amazon “In the Limelight” channel (https://www.bingenetworks.tv/channel/in-the-limellght-14192), Mat Chat (where she discusses wellness topics from her yoga mat), and the Wake Up With Giants show on Kat Country Radio (www.thedonpearsestudios.com). She is an international best-selling author, an award-winning speaker and entrepreneur, a 200-hour RYT, a 95-hour RCYT, and a proud mother of two.
"Buried. As I ran from my home leaving behind my baby girl and my 2-year-old, the tears streamed down my face. I got into my car and drove into the night, not knowing where I was going. Anywhere, in the quiet car was enough. I knocked on a friend’s door not knowing how I got there or why, and when I entered her home I was acutely aware of her own children, the same age as mine, sleeping not far away. I apologized for intruding and as I fell into a chair, buried, was the only word that came to me. Not buried beneath piles of dirt per se, but having fallen into that deep dark place. Unable to climb from the bottomless hole, alone, cold and dark. As I cried sitting in her living room, not even her presence took away the feelings of despair and loneliness that I felt. I didn’t know how to climb out of the hole. It would be another year before I discovered that ‘buried’ was a gift, an opportunity to grow..."
There is so much more to share with the deeper learnings in this story of rising from tragedy to triumph!
