Melinda Neri began her yoga journey in 2012 when she attended her first class at the Orange County YMCA. She was quickly inspired by the mind, body, and spiritual connections that yoga offered, and particularly, yoga’s ability to address anxiety and depression by shifting her perspective on the world. Yoga guided her to inner stability and self-awareness, offered her an outlet to create space and let go, and connected her with a beautiful community of fellow yogis.
Melinda completed her 200-hour certification at Sol Full Yoga in May 2018 under the guidance of Arlene Kobylinski and plans to continue to immerse herself in opportunities to learn and grow as an Instructor. She lives in Suffern, NY with her husband, Matt, and fur babies, Chewy and Sasha.
