Melissa Longfellow

Melissa will lovingly hold space for you to excavate the gems that make you uniquely amazing. Originally from Boston and raised mostly Catholic, her Guatemalan mom exposed her to many Spiritual practices. At age 8 Melissa was given the name “Padmavati, meaning lotus flower, by the late Siddha Yoga guru Swami Muktananda. After years of beating up her body snowboarding and skateboarding and beating herself up mentally for everything, she sought out yoga in 1999 for healing and arrived into a life-changing daily yoga practice with Baron Baptiste, her main teacher even today. Melissa lives in Bellingham, WA where her 2 sons are growing up quickly. She leads programs for the Baptiste Institute and enjoys traveling around the globe to teach yoga. Melissa is an experienced, 500-hour Certified Baptiste Yoga Teacher, Certified Standup Paddle Yoga Instructor Trainer, the founder of Power Yoga Academy and the leader of the global handstand challenge movement #100x100handies.

Tina Templeman

Tina is one of Seattle’s top yoga instructors, a 2011 Lululemon Ambassador, certified 500 hours, and Baptiste Yoga instructor. Chronic pain was Tina’s first yoga teacher. Like many students in her classes and patients in her massage practice, she discovered the power and joy of yoga and meditation as an antidote to injury. And in her case, an alternative to surgery.

Beginning in 1999, Tina embarked on a journey to learn the art and science of yoga. Simultaneously, she studied to become a licensed massage therapist (LMP). Her early yoga focus was on Hatha yoga and the 5 Tibetan Rites, along with deep meditations of OSHO’s Dynamic & Kundalini meditations. Tina’s knowledge of anatomy and physiology, her extensive yoga training, consulting practice with the doctors in her massage practice combined with her own lived experience of yoga’s power to heal and transform, help make her the powerful and evolving teacher that she is. Every moment is an opportunity to listen to the body’s intelligence and explore new possibilities. See more photos and other events by this presenter
