About

Welcome!

My name is Mely Alicia, I’m a yoga instructor registered with Yoga Alliance (RYT-200). I teach Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin in the Amsterdam Area and online. This is my personal space, where I will be sharing my practice, philosophy and class schedule with you. On this website you can follow my own journey and reach out to me for classes, tutorials and advice.

MY PHILOSOPHY

“Satya” is the Sanskrit word for truth. It refers to being truthful in one’s thoughts, speeches and actions. In Yoga philosophy, Satya stands for restraining from falsehood of reality in our actions and expressions.

This platform is all about speaking my truth and being true to myself, hopefully inspiring you to speak yours: your truth is your power!


MY YOGA JOURNEY

I don’t remember the first time I took a yoga class. I didn’t step on a mat one day and had a life-changing experience. Yoga did however change my life and what started as an occasional hobby eventually turned into a lifestyle.

In addition to flexibility, strength, countless health and mental benefits, yoga teaches me consistency, perseverance and to believe in myself. As a hyper sensitive person everything is a trigger for me: my environment, people, things happening to me. I feel everything deeply, it takes a lot of energy out of me. Some days I don’t feel like going out of bed so I drag myself to the mat and you know what? I actually helps.

Yoga helps me control my thoughts and emotions, to live a more balanced life. It allows me to truly unite it all: mind, body and soul. After all that’s the true meaning of yoga.

Now that I am on this lifelong journey, I want to share my experience and teach. Who knows, it might changes the life of one of my students too.

WHY PRACTICE WITH ME

I offer personalized classes and teach all levels from beginners to advanced. Yoga is for everybody, and as a teacher my mission is also to make yoga available to everybody. My intention is to provide a safe, judgement-free space and practice for my students. I feel grateful and honored to guide and help anyone their own yoga journey.

Namaste,
