Yoga Instructor

Melanie Schorr has been practicing Yoga for over 18 years and teaching group and private
classes for over 12 years. Her practice started in her hometown of Toronto after a bad car
accident left her in extremely bad condition. Since then, she has had numerous other
accidents, injuries and surgeries, using yoga as a tool for physiotherapy.

All of Melanie’s formal training was done under the highly respected Yogi Vijay Amar in
Dharamsala, India. Her training was an intense one-on-one course consisting of not only
the actual doing and teaching of Yoga, but also of human anatomy and the effects of Yoga
on the body. She then opened up her own Yoga centre in Thailand, and in addition, taught
private and group classes at a few luxury resorts. After 10 years in Thailand, she returned
to Toronto.

Melanie specializes in traditional Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga, though you may also catch
her teaching a few Vinyasa or core classes. She continues to develop her Ashtanga practice
in Toronto under the guidance of KPJAYI Level 2 Authorized teachers Paul and Rachelle
Gold.
