Melissa Marks Garner is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Yoga Teacher. She holds a Master’s degree in Art Therapy and Creativity Development from Pratt Institute. Melissa began her own meditation practice in 1997 and has been practicing ever since. She has had the great honor of receiving teaching and meditating in the presence of His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, and Cealo among other spiritual teachers. She has studied Siddha Yoga, Art of Living, Sahaj Samadi, Vipassana, Mindfulness Meditation as well as other meditation traditions. She received her yoga teacher training certification from the Yoga Studio of Corpus Christi in 2005.

Melissa began giving wellness workshops and meditation trainings in 2005. Over this time, she has lectured and provided meditation groups and individual sessions to hundreds of people. She has had the great privilege of working with all types of people, but all with one common goal: to reduce stress in their lives. Melissa has worked with cancer survivors (those in remission as well as those actively treating their disease), people with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), survivors of rape and domestic violence, people struggling with Anxiety and Depression, and those simply seeking more peace and focus in their lives.

As a Corporate Wellness Consultant with an extensive background in mental health, Melissa works with businesses that care about their employees just as much as they do their bottom lines. She works with people new to meditation, as well as those who wish to deepen their existing practice. Her ideal client is anyone who wants to maximize efficiency in their workplace, create a culture where employee self-care and employer profitability go hand in hand, and ultimately make the work environment a place where people enjoy going to every day.
