at rewild, our deepest belief:

12 years


We are busier now than ever before in human history. We are overwhelmed. Suffering from burnout. Rampantly buying self-help books, programs, workshops, apps, yoga mats, and vats of ice cream in search of that one thing that is supposedly able to “cure” us from the inside voice that says “I am never enough.”

I know. I’ve got a whole empty collection of these things gathering dust on my shelves. I remember running around, waving my arms, saying “you hoo! I could do with some answers over here!” When I eventually hit my rock bottom in my 30’s, I’d have given anything to experience the inner peace that so many of these yoga gurus preached about.

Here’s the real talk. No amount of these programs or diets will be able to give you the one secret sauce that you want to fix yourself. Because here’s the truth: You’re not broken. 

The answer to your inner healing already exists within you. 

But sometimes it gets bogged down by our modern world that demands so much from us. It’s time to shed the layers of shame, guilt, diet culture, exercise pressure, gym fatigue, and money-grubbing bosses. It’s time to unlearn the stress we gained as an adult and get back to the true version of ourselves. 

Welcome to the ReWild Yoga Studio in Traverse City, Michigan.
Your new home for yoga and fitness that fuels the body and soul.

combine fitness w/ heart

what is ReWild?

It’s time to say adios to our insecurities and become Free. Radiant. Wild.

- Yoga & movement classes that leave you energized and rejuvenated

- Inspirational messaging built into each class to put aside the “achievement” mindset and instead find gratitude for the present moment

- Encouragement & support to live your dream life with a strong and steady pursuit of growth

- Be barefoot. Go outside. Walk in nature. Swim naked.

- Walking down the street, bold and confident that you are exactly who YOU are, and no one else

- Inviting in the divine feminine to your movement and your body - no more shaming and guilt here, please!

- Reconnecting to your authentic self by shedding the conditioning and learning to love who you are

- Healing deep within - not just the symptoms but
deep inner healing work

- Stop “should-ing” yourself (also probs not a good idea to sh*t yourself either but if you do, remember to laugh along the way ;)

- Creating new neural pathways to change the way you think (aka ditch the “just think positive” and instead, find real techniques to begin to lighten the load of the ego mind

- No fitness goals. In fact, no goals. Period. We aren’t achievement-success-driven over here. Imagine simple lifestyle changes, slow, and restoration moments instead of long to-do lists

check out my story

I believe there is no right or wrong way to be on your yoga mat. I’m a former workaholic-perfectionist-burnout-divorcee who (after being diagnosed with PTSD and anxiety) hit rock bottom. Bottom of the barrel to be exact. 

After years of depression and suffering, I found my salvation on my yoga mat. It was in my first yoga classes where I learned that life is not about achievements, having more, being perfect to fit everyone else’s standards, or completing every goal on my vision board. 

Fast forward half a decade and now I teach women to do the exact same thing.


We can go to 1,000 workout classes and attempt to do all-the-things that society tells us will “someday make us happy.” But unless we learn to embrace our true authentic self, we will keep missing the mark and continue down this feeling of burnout and being lost.

My ReWild Yoga Studio incorporates fitness and flexibility, along with mindfulness and core value strategy to shed those pesky limiting thought patterns and carve out pathways to bliss and joy. If you can’t remember the last time you laughed so hard that your belly hurt, then we need to start right there. Life is about fun. Freedom. Being wild and bold. A fusion of excitement, strength training, and restorative movement is how I live my life. And it’s helped to transform hundreds of lives since its humble beginnings. Get your life back. Get your smile back. And join me on the mat.

Hey friend, I’m Melissa

I realized that it was ok to be (im)perfectly perfect.

My purpose is helping other women leave behind the overwhelm and guilt of hectic lives and self-judgment, so they can get back to being the radiant, confident, wild version of themselves
