About Melanie:

I am blessed to have grown up in the Black Hills in a loving family and supportive community, and I am grateful to be living here now, having raised my own family, doing what I love, which includes being the first Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist, Certified  Advanced and PaRama BodyTalk practitioner, BodyTalk Access Trainer,  MindScape Instructor, Emotional Resolution Practitioner and HelioSol Practitioner in South Dakota. 
My family taught me "if your head, heart and gut agree, you know it's right."  Now I find much joy in supporting people in listening to their head, heart and gut by connecting with their bodies through Body Wisdom.  If you are interested, I encourage you to follow your heart and come to the mat to discover if this is for you.

My commitment to myself and to my clients is to continue with my passion to broaden my understanding of how to connect deeply with ourselves so that we can connect deeply with others and with God (whatever we perceive God to be), finding our own unique way of expressing ourselves in the world.

Besides nurturing and being nurtured by Body Wisdom, I am also a Holistic Health Practitioner, a teacher at The Yoga Studio, an Artist-In-Schools for Dance with the South Dakota Arts Council, a grateful supporter of Black Hills Dance Theater, founder of BodyTalk South Dakota, a part time tree farmer, land consultant, student, mother of two wonderful people, and happily married to their father.  I am delighted to have the opportunity through Body Wisdom to work with newborns to 94 year olds (but taking other ages as well :), individuals, couples, partners, families, and groups who have requested my presence as they take responsibility for their own healing. 

I love my job!
