Meet Yoga Teacher Melissa Spigutz

Melissa Spigutz began her training with three immersion weekends led by Jonny Kest at Cleveland Yoga in 2009. She completed her 200-hour teacher training with Tami Schneider at Cleveland Yoga in 2013.

She is forever grateful for connecting with CY in 2008. The community has inspired and supported her in many ways, elevating her yoga practice on and off the mat. She continues to learn from Kathryn Budig, Tiffany Cruikshank, her fellow teachers at Cleveland Yoga, students, family, and friends.

I am thankful for:

My amazing family and friends, good health, and yoga

Why Yoga?

Awareness, strength, community, freedom

Favorite yoga pose and why?

Seated meditation

Best advice you have ever received:

“Work hard and have fun everyday.” – Dad

What do you do for FUN:

Yoga, run, cycle, swim, snowboard, hike, explore, kick it with friends and family

I’ve never forgotten the moment in yoga when…

I realized I was too complacent in my life and needed to change
and challenge myself so I could grow.
