Melissa first started practicing yoga in 2007 while in undergrad at UF, and fell in love with the way yoga allowed her to silence her mind and reconnect with herself. After graduate school at USF, Melissa moved to Chapel Hill, NC with her husband and started consistently practicing hot yoga. She quickly discovered how necessary her practice was in preserving her mental, emotional and physical health. She wanted to help others experience the serenity she found through yoga. Melissa completed Carolina Yoga Company’s 200-hour YTT, along with their Whole Mama Yoga 85-hour Prenatal YTT.
Through breath work, meditation, and asanas, Melissa creates a safe and fun environment where students are encouraged to find their own mental, emotional and physical balance and bring that harmony into their daily lives.

Our yoga mat provides a space for us to encounter challenges and practice moving through them, transforming us both physically and emotionally. One quickly finds that the practice of moving through challenges on the mat spills over into our daily lives, making life more peaceful. Pregnancy and labor are some of the most intense physical and mental experiences a woman encounters. Prenatal yoga aids us in finding the power within to calm the mind, breathe and move through our most significant challenges with grace.
Thanecha is a song-writing, guitar-playing, yoga-teaching Tampa Bay resident, and when it comes to yoga and ﬁtness, Thanecha has a deep passion for both teaching over 20 yoga and group ﬁtness classes per week and working with a handful of personal clients. She has had the honor of teaching more than one thousand students throughout Tampa Bay, and strives to use her gifts and talents to positively impact the lives of as many people as she possibly can.
Thanecha believes that yoga connects the mind, body, and spirit, and that what you learn on the mat can be taken into every area of your life, and into every experience. In her classes, she creates a space of non-judgement, where you have the freedom to go at your own pace, challenging yourself in every pose, while simultaneously being able to listen to what your body and spirit need in that moment. In each yoga class, she incorporates guided meditation, breathing techniques, Tibetan Bells and a Singing Bowl, and ends the class with live music that is sure to leave you feeling refreshed and more at peace.
Playing a role in the happiness and wellness of our community is immensely important to her, and you can ﬁnd her teaching yoga and group ﬁtness classes at LifeTime Athletic, Palma Ceia Golf and Country Club, and at Crunch locations all over Tampa Bay. She is excited to join our team at Baby Scene, and can’t wait to lead you in your practice. Namaste!

Patti has completed over 500 hours of Yoga Teacher Training (YTT), is a Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher (RCYT), and a graduate of the Yoga Education Program: Pre K-12th grade. She holds a master’s degree in Management and a Yoga Gangster’s Certificate – teaching yoga to at-risk populations.
