Melva Max began her study of yoga in 1992 when she experienced sciatica after the birth of her second child. Finding the method to be both diagnostic and enriching, Melva was struck by the transformation in her practice and her personal life. She completed her teacher training at the Iyengar Institute of New York in 2011. She strives to share and impart the precision and clarity of Iyengar yoga with others. You can find her Iyengar Rope Wall Classes at Shambhala Yoga in Brooklyn.
