Melissa-Fjeldsted-swoobfit-profile

Melissa has been passionate about the yoga practice since her first class in 2006. After graduating from Bountiful High School in 2008 she moved to Logan to attend Utah State University with the intention of becoming a high school counselor. Once she received her bachelor’s degree from USU in Family, Consumer and Human Development, she decided that teaching the yoga practice to others was the perfect way to combine her passions for yoga and therapy. She believes that an individual encompasses all the tools he/she needs to change his/her life for the better, and strives to help others see this power through her teaching.

Melissa received her 200-hour Yoga Alliance teacher training certification in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and attributes much of her success to the instructors there. She has practiced and studied several types of yoga including Hatha, Yin, Ashtanga/Vinyasa, Hot/Bikram, Restorative, Kundalini and Flying yoga. Melissa is also the first instructor in Utah to develop full classes, trainings, and sequences using the yoga wheel, and has begun to take her wheel class training out of state. She mixes lots of strength building into her flow and balance postures, and her classes are always creative, fun and energetic! 

Melissa has a passion for travel, the outdoors, hiking, soccer, volleyball, rock climbing and spending time with her two dogs, daughter, and her amazing, supportive husband. She is excited to continue her teaching and training and will forever remain a student of yoga.
