About Melanie…


Namaste…My name is Melanie Veenstra. I believe that your natural state is one of joy, light heartedness and peace.  It is my greatest joy to create a safe space for you to heal, laugh and embrace your magnificence.

I started practicing yoga in 1999 and completed a 500 hour certification course at Still Point Yoga in 2007. Yoga transformed my life and launched me onto a path of personal empowerment and spiritual development that continues to surprise and delight me. As well as teaching yoga, I am a Certified Consulting Hypnotist with the National Guild of Hypnotists, the world’s oldest and largest training and professional association.   I am a certified Metaphysical Teacher with Inpowered Living.  I also offer Thai Massage, Christos Technique, Hot Stone Massage, Intuitive/Energetic Healing, Metamorphic Technique and a variety of workshops developed from my experience.

My spiritual journey has been guided by International Spiritual and Empowerment Coaches, Paul & Jaylee Balch of Inpowered Living.  I also hold a B.A. in Psychology from Queen’s University.

My dream has been to create a spiritual community where others can heal and learn to embrace their magnificence – where celebration, joy, and laughter are considered a right of birth.  I am living this dream and am blessed to share my life with a supportive partner named Mark, and two amazing children, Harm & Maeve.
