Rob is a singer/songwriter with a message of joy and celebration who began sharing his music with the yoga community after a teacher heard one of his songs, "Breathe", bought a CD and began playing it in her yoga classes. Then the same teacher asked him to lead a kirtan at her studio, and he and Melissa have been chanting ever since. Besides singing kirtan with Melissa, Rob continues to write, record and perform as a solo artist. Learn more
Although Melissa has been singing her entire life, it was through Rob's encouragement that she began sharing her sweet, lyrical voice with others. Through the discovery of kirtan and bhakti yoga she found deeper access to her authentic voice. Melissa began her practice of yoga over 15 years ago, and has been teaching since 2012. Whether leading kirtan or a yoga practice, Melissa provides a safe space to honor the humility of curiosity and welcomes the thrill of discovery in the potential of each individual's expression.
In addition to leading kirtans, Rob and Melissa also teach workshops and live music yoga classes.
