Mélika has been a certified Hatha Yoga teacher since 2006, studying under the teachings of Sivananda Yoga International. Brought up in a yogic home where her father followed the teachings of Sri Chinmoy, she learned from a young age that being in tune with one’s body was an essential part of living a wholesome and happy life.
To deepen her knowledge of Yoga, Mélika embarked on a backpacking journey to India in 2010, opening the space to deepen her knowledge of yoga and introducing her to Ayurvedic Medicine.
In 2012, Mélika began formally studying Ayurvedic Medicine under Dr. Anita Sharma to become an Ayurvedic Practitioner. The Ayurvedic approach to health and healing is based on treating every person as a unique part of the quantum whole. Ayurveda does not concentrate on only one aspect of the body but sees the body as inextricably connected.
Each Ayurvedic consultation will begin by helping individuals discover their unique body type and the root of any imbalances that may exist in the mind, body and spirit connection. Eventually, the ayurvedic practitioner guides her clients through various tools, practices and interventions in order to maintain or restore optimal health.
Melika is also certified in Ayurvedic Facial, Head Massage and has learned Chakra Balancing Massage in her Ayurvedic studies. She loves applying her knowledge of herbs and oils into her practice and she is currently working with products from La Maison Jacynte and makes her own medicated oils for Ayurvedic therapies, always exclusively for the clients, addressing the root cause of the unbalance. She makes her oils with the traditional Ayurvedic method used for thousands of years. Mélika
is also working on her natural skin cream line which will be available on the market later on. She has sold her products in Montreal, Quebec and Sutton at health and wellness events.
Reiki is also a part of her practice that she incorporates into her treatments.
She has also done various contracts for the University of Moncton concerning health and wellness. From giving conferences for the Cardiac Wellness Program, she also taught Psychology and Kinesiology students in becoming aware of the mind-body connection. She also teaches yoga at the University and has done many workshops about nutrition, Ayurveda and Inner & Outer Beauty. While teaching Yoga and Practicing Ayurveda at Laluna Yoga, ShantiYogi and BendCity Yoga, she continued her studies and became a Naturopath in 2019!!
She was part of the committee that launched the first Yoga Festival in Moncton initiated by BendCity Yoga, with the support of health and wellness businesses. Mélika is currently working at Simple Nature Boutique, a beautiful and calm environment where she can take the proper time to treat each client from start to finish. She deeply believes everyone is deserving of health in mind, body and spirit!
