In 2019, Yoga Alliance defined contact hours as real time sessions including live streamed classes. With the impact of shifting services and classes online, Mel Marie Yoga Academy has accommodated to these changes providing yoga teacher training programs that allow students from all over the world to train with Melissa Aguirre and her team in Adaptive Therapeutic Yoga. Currently, we are only offering both our 200 hour Yoga Training Program and 300 hour Advanced Therapeutics Training Program via Livestream.

"I loved Melissa’s 200YTT so much that I rolled straight into her 300 hour program. The breadth and depth of information covered was phenomenal. YTT helped me rediscover myself after a long road of cancer treatment. Melissa’s passion and guidance helped me cultivate my own unique teaching style and left me feeling empowered to go out and share my gifts. 🙏🏼💫" - Natalie H

"This has truly been a wonderful experience. I have learned so much and have the tools to continue my learning and teach others. I have gained confidence in myself and abilities as a yoga teacher. I came into this very interested in the adaptive side of yoga, but had little understanding but now feel passionate about it helping others. I'm thankful for the lessons, the way you teach. I will cherish this experience throughout my life." Kimberly, RYT 200

"Melissa has a great way of making the 8 limbs of yoga come to life. Her knowledge is beautiful and she seems to really enjoy and love sharing with others. We laughed, teared, connected together. If you are looking for a whole body, mind and spiritual connection- see Melissa!" Lynn, RYT 200 

"Melissa's passion and care for others is apparent and shines through whether she is facilitating asanas or delivering theory. She is diligent in her research so her students understand how yoga fits into our communities, in our healthcare system and every day lives. She is kind, thoughtful and her door is always open. Because of Melissa's desire that her students have a well-rounded education I feel my path as a teacher has a solid foundation. I look forward to following in her footsteps helping others lead healthier lives the yogic way." Amber,  RYT 200
