“The hardness of a diamond is part of its usefulness, but its true value is in the light that shines through it.”  - B.K.S. Iyengar




All classes and workshops at Just Yoga are conducted by teachers who hold the international Iyengar® Yoga Certification Mark, a symbol of excellence and authenticity in teaching the Iyengar method in its purest form.


Our teachers are dedicated to the practice and teaching of Iyengar Yoga. They maintain and develop their teaching abilities by attending Professional Development Days, Workshops, Conventions, Classes and training with more senior Iyengar teachers.

Melanie Palmer

Proprietor & Iyengar Yoga teacher

Melanie is the current proprietor of Just Yoga and has been involved since it opened in 1993. "I started practising Iyengar® yoga in 1990, originally to help with a problematic back. My back grew stronger and my interest turned to the educational process of yoga. I was inspired to start teacher training in 1998. Yoga has enriched all aspects of my life."

Melanie has studied with the Iyengar family in the UK and in Pune India.

Melanie is a Level 3 certified Iyengar yoga teacher
