For the last 18 years, Melina Meza has explored the art of nutrition and yoga. She utilizes her knowledge of Ayurveda, Hatha Yoga, nutrition, and healthy lifestyle promotion to create what she calls "Seasonal Vinyasa." Every yoga class, retreat, and workshop emphasizes alignment with nature and the crucial importance of sequencing. In addition to asana practice, Meza's works include understandings on physical health and nutrition as well as how to inspire self-knowledge that allows for the conscious adjustment of day-to-day choices. Exuding in her love of yoga, Melina Meza's colorful and hopeful perspective on life, originates from her devotion to yoga and eating well, to teaching and nutritional counseling, and traveling and experiencing different cultures. Until December 2011, Melina Meza was a yoga teacher in Seattle, Washington at 8 Limbs Yoga Centers, when she moved to Oakland. At the 8 Limbs Yoga Centers she was the Co-Director of the 8 Limbs Yoga Centers 200 and 500 Hour Teachers Training Program. She continues to grow as a teacher, and is influenced by studying with numerous teachers, including Dr. Robert Svoboda, Scott Blossom, Sarah Powers, Jin Sung, Gary Kraftsow and Seattle's Kathleen Hunt. Meza believes that retreats and sabbaticals are vital to her personal practice and bring her deeper reflection and inspiration. Melina Meza is the author of the Art of Sequencing books and produced the Yoga for the Seasons video series, which premiered in September 2009 with the release of the Fall Vinyasa DVD.
