Mel is the founder of Wellness Retreats NZ, with a diverse background including crewing on super yachts, managing a high-end women’s surf and yoga retreat in Bali, and extensive corporate event management. She is extremely passionate about health and well-being. A personal battle with chronic fatigue was a life-changing experience and led to an immersive journey to wellness again only using natural and holistic treatments. This journey has fuelled her desire to share her story, educate, inspire and guide others on their own journey to lead healthier happier lives. Mel is certified in Vinyasa Flow and teaches at various studios around Auckland. She is also a guest teacher at lululemon and provides private yoga instruction to individuals and businesses looking to bring more wellness into their everyday life.
