Melanie Richard

Edinburgh & Dumfries based Little Greene Yoga Foundation Years (3-8yrs) Kids Yoga Instructor

Melanie has been practicing yoga since she was 18 years old and living in the States. After moving to the U.K. in 2013 and dealing with trails of living alone in a different country, yoga became like a best friend to her. This was the moment the she decided to become a 200hr qualified Yoga Instructor.

Melanie has a degree in Childhood Development and has worked in a nursery in Northumberland since 2014. She has always had a passion for working with children since she can remember. Doing the Children Yoga Teacher Training has combined the two things in life that she loves and is passionate about.


By introducing yoga into the nursery, she has already seen the many benefits in self-confidence and creativity that yoga can bring into a child’s life. “Being able to bring a sense of joy and freedom while also teaching children about their own emotions is such a wonderful gift to have. I feel very grateful to transfer all the benefits that yoga can attract into every person’s life.” Melanie is a mother of two young boys. She is looking for nursery/primary schools in the area of or around Edinburgh to begin her journey.


Melanie successfully completed her Little Greene Yoga Foundation Teacher Certificate (3-8 yrs) in February 2018.
