Storytime Yoga with Melissa Hawkins

Kids love Storytime Yoga with Melissa Hawkins! She has been part of the Maya Shakti tribe since November 2016, bringing smiles and a playful vibe with her.

The sounds of happy children float down the hall as they enjoy their classes, bringing new life to the studio. They infuse the space with youthful energy that lingers long after they’ve gone home.

Melissa has been working with young children for 16 years with over 9 years of experience as a kindergarten teacher in the public schools.

As a practicing Yogini for the past 12 years, and a registered Yoga teacher through Yoga Alliance and Next Generation Yoga, she works to share Yoga as a tool for educators, parents and children.

She believes that mindfulness combined with movement helps lay the foundation for a lifetime of success.

Melissa’s Yoga classes playfully weave mind, body, and community with music and interactive storytelling, while conveying lessons in self-expression, body image, social skills, positive thinking, and environmental awareness.

Through her own personal practice Melissa has found Yoga to be the ultimate gift that keeps on giving.

“Yoga teaches me to stay connected and fully engaged with every moment. Noticing and finding beauty in the seemingly mundane, and ordinary moments is like the cherry on top of my ice cream.”

When Melissa is not teaching you might find her dancing in the kitchen; “I just love culinary adventures!” She also enjoys spending quality time with her family, reading, hiking, traveling, and lounging in hammocks.

Always uplifting and positive, it’s really hard not to feel a little better just by being near her.
