Mechelle Davis, ERYT, C-IAYT, RCYT, YACEP is an experienced teacher in the healing arts of yoga, meditation, qigong and personal wellness coach. She is known for her practical, down-to-earth, “just makes sense” approach that offers students self-discovery through experiencing the “power of awareness and self-observation” without judgment.
Self-Discovery * Self-Correction * Self-Love
Mechelle received her RYT 200 hour training under the guidance of Swami Jaya Devi, in Raja/Classical yoga in 2000, the eight-limb path as described by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras. She is currently in the 500 hour program studying the Kali Natha Yoga System. She has clocked over 40,000 teaching hours and earned the recognition (ERYT) as well as the respected (C-IAYT) certified yoga therapist from the International Association of Yoga Therapist. She is certified in several healing modalities to include, yoga, meditation, reflexology, qigong, AtMu-Ra-Reiki and energy facilitation.
For fifteen years she has owned and operates a private “public” practice the Yoga Hive Healing Arts Studio (aka Yoga Hive) in South Atlanta. The Yoga Hive Studio is one of a few African-American owned and operated yoga studios in Atlanta and has served the community since 2006. In addition she works for Clayton County Senior Services (14 yrs.) providing yoga therapy, meditation, and reflexology classes for seniors and teaches staff, faculty and students yoga and mediation (8 yrs) at Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA.
Her style of yoga combines her personal passion for the restoration of order to the whole person, the integrity of exchange and healing from “weapons of our own decisions”, resulting in an opportunity to move forward on the “road to health.” As a former corporate professional in Information Technology, Mechelle has experienced the emotional, financial and physical challenges that come with balancing daily life and multiple stresses. Her family, as well as her own experiences (good and bad) in her life has helped to shape a kind, patient, yet strong and accepting person.
Mechelle’s enthusiasm and passion for teaching, combined with her extensive knowledge and understanding of the foundations of yoga philosophy, meditation and holistic health, allow her to teach classes that takes students on an inner journey to get in touch with their true self at the most intimate level. Her class is not a regular practice but a trans formative experience. Favorite saying is: I’m a student of my profession always....practicing self-mastery, self-care and love.
Thank you for your support over the years and I am forever grateful for everyone who has crossed my path and I welcome opportunities to continue to share with mankind.
My students are very important to me and I love and respect each person I am allowed to work with. I use the word “my” because I embrace our journey and it’s passionate and personal to me.
The Yoga Hive is an established yet intimate yoga studio that cultivated the atmosphere of “peace of mind” and a “mind of peace” for everyone.
