Hi! I am Melissa Maimoni, a certified yoga instructor and nutrition coach based in Boca Raton, FL. I have been drawn to yoga and mindfulness practices since a young age. As a mom of 2, and a former healthcare worker, I have come to understand the importance of making our wellness a priority. I began teaching yoga and sharing my passion for health and wellness with others, and 2 years ago I added classes for our youth. By sharing the practices of yoga + mindfulness I believe we gain invaluable tools that can only benefit us in navigating life and in creating a sense of inner peace. Having these tools at a younger age is such a bonus! I believe we must be the change that we want to see. While I may not get to see all the effects of the changes I’m making, it fills my soul to know I get to have a hand in leaving the world a more loving and peaceful place by helping others create a sense of balance within.

Rylan Knox
Ryt-300
Yoga Instructor

Rylan grew up dedicating her time to intense training, competing in gymnastics for about 8 years. She then went on to spend many years coaching gymnastics. Upon moving to south Florida she was introduced to yoga and breath work by one of her best friends. Her personal yoga journey began after the sudden loss of that very friend. Yoga quite literally saved her life in a time of grieving and pain. She graduated from MSD in 2018 and has spent a long time healing and processing from the tragedy that occurred. She has struggled most of her life with mental health disorders and came to realize how much the breath work, mindfulness, and focus of yoga helps keep her mind at ease. Despite all the tragedy and loss she has experienced, she chooses to use her experiences to grow and allows them to fuel her passion for helping others discover their inner peace. She is a 200 hour RYT certified through American Yoga Teacher's Training, as well as a certified Reiki Master Teacher, and a certified sound healing practitioner. Her goals in teaching yoga are to help others heal, and to inspire and guide you through your own practice and self discovery process. She wants to use her own story to inspire people to get the help they need and let them know that it's okay to not be okay. What we benefit from yoga on our mats, the physical asanas, is only a sliver of all that yoga has to offer.
