Now that you have met the Powder Princess, let me introduce you to another member of the Royal Family. Melanie is her name, and she is so much fun to be around, so genuine and is a huge asset to our Fam!
Melanie is a multi-talented, free spirited, fun and creative soul who had a wake-up call from the universe several years ago following a breast cancer diagnosis. Her commitment to getting to the root of her disease has taken her on a journey exploring many diverse modalities of healing including Art, Yoga, Energy Therapy, Emotional Release, as well as Intuitive and Spiritual Guidance.
Throughout Mel’s life in Riverton, she raised 3 children and had been self employed as a hairdresser for 22 years. Although she still dabbles in the hair industry, she shifted her main focus to work with the healing arts.
Melanie has studied and has a special appreciation for how Yoga, Energy Work and Coaching can assist with healing the imprints of stress, PTSD, trauma and addictions.
Melanie is an artist, a writer, an Integrated Energy Therapy Master Instructor, a certified Journey Code Life Coach and also leads Trauma Informed Yoga Sessions.
Her passion for helping others really shines through when she deeply connects with the human soul. She has a loving ability to hold space and “hear “ others in subtle ways other than speech.
She knows and believes that healing, transformation and freedom is always within reach.
Melanie’s message to you is that you have the power to lovingly co create your own life. You just need someone who believes in you, to show you how it feels, so you can learn to believe in yourself.
“You can make magic happen. You can do it. I am here to assist you.”
