Melissa Lago, MA, MDiv is a mind-body educator, yoga teacher, and graduate of Harvard Divinity School. She completed her masters thesis, “Yoga Transforms Us" in 2018. Her life is her laboratory. An avid researcher, keen observer, and life-long learner, she seeks to support, inspire, and facilitate transformation from the inside out.
She integrates yoga with tools, practices, wisdom and research from psychology, contemplative practice, spiritual care, and science. Weaving this knowledge together with inspiration from her teachers, mentors, authors of prose and poetry, nature, and life, defines her approach to teaching and living. She has taught yoga and lectured about yoga for over a decade. In addition, she has taught philosophy, religion, interdisciplinary studies, and the Mind Body Wisdom process, a process that she developed naturally while working with a private client and built upon at Harvard.
As a teacher Melissa seeks to create an environment that is welcoming, safe, accepting, and uplifting. In 2022 she joined the Yoga Studies faculty at Naropa University as a Visiting Instructor. In addition, she teaches at The StarHouse in Sunshine Canyon in Boulder, CO, as well as privately and to groups both online and in person.
