Originally from Hawaii, Melanie moved to California in the late 90's and began to explore different styles of Yoga. She became a registered yoga teacher through True Nature School of Yoga in 2008. Since then, Melanie has taught yoga in hospitals, schools, Yoga studios, in outreach centers, and on the road for touring musicians. Her passion for Yoga’s healing properties led to an in depth study of anatomy and physiology. Melanie has completed Yin Yoga training with Paul Grilley and is currently working towards her HHP (Holistic Health Practitioner) degree with a focus on Ayurveda and Clinical Herbology. As a Holistic Nutritionist certified through NHI, she is creating a wellness program offering nutrition and wellness coaching.
Melanie is on faculty at True Nature School of Yoga, where she trains yoga teachers in anatomy, Ayurveda, and alignment in asana, and is co-owner of Yoga Oceanside, where she teaches weekly yoga classes and offers Rebel & Muse workshops.
With both parents being composers/song writers, music was everywhere Kaleo was. The name 'Kaleo' translates to 'the voice'. Born and raised in Hawaii, he moved to Southern California with his band, Pepper, to pursue their musical career. With the success of Pepper, and years of touring and recording, it is still his great passion to deeply connect with people while sharing music. After becoming a yoga teacher, he found inspiration in bringing yoga and music together.
