My name is Cathy Mussman and I founded Mel O Yoga in the fall of 2013 after living in the area for 4 years and realizing Palm Bay did not have a yoga studio. Having practiced and taught at many wonderful studios in both Melbourne and Indialantic I realized that the 35-minute commute both to and from negated the calm I shared with my students on the mat.
One night as I drove home after class white knuckled and annoyed I decided it was time for a change and change we did! We actively searched and found the perfect space to call home, Suite #6 in the Beautiful Shady Oaks Plaza at the corner of Babcock and Malabar Roads. We jumped in with both feet, we found our new home on a Wednesday, and by Monday of the following week we signed our lease and hired Southern Services to design and build out our dream studio. Not without blood, sweat, a few tears and many long nights - Mel O Yoga was born!
We lovingly refer to our studio as boutique yoga where we offer small class sizes that encourage our students to step onto their mats without fear of competition and or judgement.
