Canadian Melanie Schorr is co-owner and head instructor at The Yoga Studio. She has been practising Yoga for over 15 years and studied under the well-known and highly respected Yogi Vijay Amar in Dharamsala, India. Her training was an intense one-on-one course consisting of not only the actual doing and teaching of Yoga, but also of human anatomy and the effects of Yoga on the body. She loved her training so much that upon completion she knew that this was her calling.
Because of her teachings in India, Melanie’s own teaching style follows that of her teacher and is therefore quite traditional. It focuses on helping to move energy throughout the body; aiding the body to function properly internally. She also follows the Indian philosophy behind Yoga and believes that Yoga truly is the coming together of the body, mind and soul.
For the past 10 years she has taught Yoga in some highly acclaimed resorts throughout Thailand as well as at The Yoga Studio’s two locations; Koh Phangan and Khao Lak.
