Teaching Yoga Since 2019
Melaney Houle is the owner of Lotus & Compass Yoga, and President of Lotus & Compass Inc, a trendy boutique clothing and gift store for women. Melaney has been practicing yoga for over 15 years and has always felt so empowered as a result. In the spring of 2019, Melaney made the decision to finally pursue a yoga teacher training program. She completed her 200 hour yoga teacher certification from Yoga San Kalpa, in Florence, Ma. Additionally, she holds a 50 hour certification for Yin Yoga from Yoga San Kalpa. Though she has practiced yoga in some form since high school, Melaney dove into her yoga full force as a way to find peace within her mind and body after the birth of her second child. Becoming a mother had transformed her whole life in the best way possible, but in midst of the chaos, she felt herself often overwhelmed with anxiety, and was longing for a little bit of structured self-care in her week. She began to practice daily, and within a matter of weeks she found a significant improvement in her daily anxiety levels, and a much deeper sense of self-love and self-acceptance. In addition to these positive benefits of her yoga practice...she also discovered something she never anticipated: a calling to finally become certified to teach this practice to others. Melaney is happily married to her partner Brandon, with whom she has shared the last 10 years of her life. Together, they have two children: Hunter and Haven, passionate little yogis and the official Lotus & Compass Yoga ambassadors!
