"The average age of widowhood is 56, and indeed I was 56 when my husband of 32 years passed away. With meditation and concentration, I sent a message out to the universe wanting more than ever to 'participate' in this new life, explore my new freedom, and challenge my fears. I took advanced yoga training and began to teach." Melanie teaches at Barkan Hot Yoga Studio in Fort Lauderdale, privately in her home and onboard yachts and cruise ships worldwide. She completed Duke University Integrative Medicine's Yoga for Seniors and Yoga Therapy certification and incorporates this training in her annual Labor Day Weekend Retreat at Robert Redford’s Sundance Resort. She taught yoga while traveling to SE Asia as part of the CARE International delegation, participated in the Caribbean 1500 sailboat rally and taught yoga while on board and at beaches in the British Virgin Islands. She was a guest instructor at Treasure Island, Fiji and she climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro and practiced yoga with her crew while ascending. She has been a guest instructor at Jnane Tamsna in Marrakech as well at Sundance Resort, Utah. In December 2012, Melanie taught yoga daily on a Kenya and Tanzania Safari. Her 2014 travels will take her to Tahiti, New Zealand and Fiji where she will be a guest instructor at Jean Michel Cousteau Resort.
