PeaceLab Yoga Giveaway!

We loved introducing you all to the Peacelab Yoga studio yesterday and are thrilled that Melanie is going to sponsor a giveaway for our readers!

Melanie McQuown, Anusara-Inspired (TM), RYT 200, has been practicing yoga for almost 15 years.  She has been teaching in the community for over 5 years, and received her certifications in 2010.  Foremost a student, she is inspired by the many teachers she has studied with, including Behnje Masson, Rick Powell, Mimi Ray,  Desiree Rumbaugh, as well as many others.  She continues to be inspired by her students daily, and loves to see the transformation that arises from their time on the mat.  She is passionate about sharing this practice with all who step on the mat, so that they can experience joy, freedom, and peace……..both inside and out.

I’ve known Melanie for years and while I haven’t had a chance to take one of her classes quite yet, one of our guest contributors, Mary, shared yesterday about her experience at this new Grandville yoga studio.

The PeaceLab Yoga studio exists for you.

    Welcome!!! Looking forward to practicing in your space.


  31. Had the pleasure of taking my first yoga class with Melanie this week at the Grandville studio. What a lovely studio, and of course, having known Melanie for a few years, I expected nothing less. I’ve had the privilege of taking a few classes before with Melanie and love her style, knowledge and fun-loving ways. I always, always walk away from her class with a new perspective on a pose or a principle (that’s big). You’ll be sure to see me back at PeaceLab regularly.

  32. Diane Q says:

    I have been to Melanie’s classes in the past and can’t wait until I can find time to go to Peacelab! Melanie is a great teacher!

  33. Sharon Kershner says:

    I am so thrilled that Melanie has been able to open this studio. She is an awesome instructor and has a passion not only for yoga, but also for creating “community”. In her classes, everyone is accepted for where they are at in their practice – no judgement.

  34. I would love to win if eligible

  35. I’d love to win! I did a pre-natal yoga class but that is my only experience with yoga.

  36. I would love to try your studio.
