    Melony Bergeron

    Melony Bergeron is an Accountant and CPA with many years of business experience. Her yoga journey began 7 years ago after the birth of her third child. The stress and anxiety involved in trying to balance her professional and personal life with three children felt overwhelming. She decided to try yoga for the first time and this class made her so aware of what she was missing in her workouts! Exercises that she had been doing at the gym were bringing more tension into her muscles while increasing her heart rate. What yoga taught her was how to slow down and focus internally while challenging her body and increasing flexibility. Yoga has become an integral part of her everyday life and she can feel the benefits from this training every day! Melony decided to combine her love for yoga with her knowledge of business by opening this studio in The Woodlands, Texas.

Tiffany believes “even though it took so long (2 kids in that time span) it really helped me grow as a yogi and a teacher”.  Now, having her E-RYT 200 ,Tiffany is excited to share all her knowledge about yoga and a teacher as the SEVA 200 RYT teacher trainer. Tiffany enjoys setting up get togethers to create a community both on and off the mat. She encourages her students to get out of their comfort zones by experiencing things that are yoga and non-yoga related. She looks forward to seeing you in class and joining in the get togethers.

  • Additional Information

    The training covers the vital basics of practicing and teaching yoga while providing a glimpse of several yoga lineages creating a well-rounded education of the ever-expanding yoga world. As a Hatha training, the Seva program incorporates several styles and perspectives on yoga while maintaining a focus on asana practice as a pathway to deeper self-awareness. The Seva Teacher Training brings together diverse instructors from different lineages and presents a variety of perspectives on the modern and classical worlds of yoga. The full program offers a wide foundation of knowledge, from which any yogic pathway is possible.

    Hatha-Vinyasa or “Flow Yoga” is highlighted in the training and serves as an empowering base of understanding for practitioners and teachers. Hatha-Vinyasa emphasizes the breath-movement connection and facilitates “flowing” through yoga asanas cultivating a moving meditation. Woven with the fluidity of Hatha-Vinyasa is an emphasis on anatomical alignment as a pathway to kinesthetic awareness.

    This Seva style of teaching yoga will provide you with an understanding how to: sequence an all levels Vinyasa yoga class towards a peak asana, offer intelligent and confident teaching cues, convey a sense of heart and personality, and offer safe and informative hands-on-adjustments.
