Offering classes and private yoga therapy in the New Orleans area, Laura Stell is a holistic nurse with over 30 years
of study and training in a range of yoga styles. She has completed an advanced Teacher Training with the American Viniyoga Institute, and has studied yoga therapy with Gary Kraftsow and Robin Rothenberg's Essential Yoga Therapy. Viniyoga emphasizes an approach to personal practice that integrates and adapts elements of the eight limbs of Classical Yoga to meet the needs and intentions of the student. Her private sessions particularly welcome students new to yoga practice, or those seeking a gentle, therapeutic approach addressing injuries or illness.
Melanie Fawer has been teaching Ashtanga yoga for almost twenty years. As a certified Ashtanga lineage holder of Sri
K.Pattabhi Jois, she feels it her obligation to pass on this authentic knowledge to others regardless of level or previous study.
A deep interest in Eastern philosophy and spirituality in her teens led Melanie to explore yoga in her early 20s. Ultimately, she felt there was more and in 1994, she traveled to India for the first time. She fortuitously met Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India, the father of Ashtanga yoga, who became her teacher. In 2001, Jois certified Melanie to become a lineage holder and carry on the Ashtanga teaching tradition, an honor held by only 18 others in the U.S.
The Yoga Room in New Orleans offers Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga for students of all levels. Led and Mysore-style classes and private instruction are offered and Melanie hosts retreats and workshops.
