Welcome to Lemon Balm Yoga & Wellness!

This website is a collection of my offerings and an exploration of self expression.

Blessings & Namaste, Melissa

Matthew 5:14 “You are the light of the world.”


Melissa is on a mission to guide individuals to become more present within their body, mind, and spirit, by encouraging self love and compassion. She says that inner light is within us all, because we are all connected to the One True Source! Yoga reminds and guides us to shed layers that keep us from knowing this connection to our True Self that we were always meant to be! We are love and light!

Yoga: Melissa is a 500 Hour Yoga Alliance Experienced Yoga Instructor and Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider. She has completed many other intensive trainings and certifications, including Yoga Trapeze Certification. She believes in the true inner and outer benefits of a regular yoga practice, because she has witnessed countless for herself. This stands to reason why she eventually transitioned from a corporate job as a dental hygienist to spreading her inner spiritual gift and light across the Mississippi Delta and far beyond!

Her Shop: Melissa appreciates the awareness that her father instilled in her to be  mindful of the things she put in and on her body. Melissa first made her All-Natural Lotion Bars as a compliment giveaway for one of her yoga workshops. The rave reviews that she received from the product encouraged her to start making these products to sell. She hopes you are motivated to investigate what you and your family use on the skin you’re in, and that you are inspired to “show yourself some love” as well! She is happy to offer a natural, safe (non-chemical) way to do just that!
