Melanie Fawer has been teaching Ashtanga yoga for almost twenty years. As a certified Ashtanga lineage holder of Sri K.Pattabhi Jois, she feels it her obligation to pass on this authentic knowledge to others regardless of level or previous study.
"The Practice of Teaching" – Melanie's Teacher Training & Yoga Immersion offers a thorough understanding of the Ashtanga teaching tradition, including lessons on yoga philosophy & history, adjusting & alignment, Ayurveda, chanting, Pranayama, Energetic Anatomy, and other healing modalities. It is for yoga students and aspiring or current yoga teachers. The training will take place one weekend/month, October 2013 – April 2014 (make-ups available). Upon completion, participants will be eligible to register at the 200-hour level as a teacher with The Yoga Alliance. For further information, visit: http://www.ashtangayogaroom.com/teacher-training.

A deep interest in Eastern philosophy and spirituality in her teens led Melanie to explore yoga in her early 20s. Ultimately, she felt there was more and in 1994, she traveled to India for the first time. She fortuitously met Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India, the father of Ashtanga yoga, who became her teacher. In 2001, Jois certified Melanie to become a lineage holder and carry on the Ashtanga teaching tradition, an honor held by only 18 others in the U.S.
The Yoga Room in New Orleans offers Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga for students of all levels. Led and Mysore-style classes and private instruction are offered and Melanie hosts retreats and workshops.
