You can learn more about Melissa’s professional coaching practice at MelissaEisler.com.

Melissa teaches Vinyasa classes at her favorite studio in San Diego, meditation and yoga to kids and families in the oncology ward at Rady’s Children’s Hospital, and yoga and meditation in corporate settings. 

Her favorite part of coaching, teaching, and writing about the world of personal growth and mindfulness is the challenge of figuring out where people are in their journey, and meeting them there. It's about encouraging her coachees, students, and readers to open their minds and hearts each time they step into a coaching session, onto the yoga mat or open an article to read. It’s about finding the right way to reach people and connect with them so they can understand, relate to, and benefit from the practices of yoga, meditation, and all of the ancient wisdom and teachings.
