Melinda Lowrey

Melinda has transformed through many and various careers, which have led her to be exactly where she should be. Her various "lives" have included that of a pianist and piano teacher, an early childhood educator, running an infant nursery for single mothers and their babies, to that of a software engineer, where she spent more than 30 years as a programmer, designer, trainer, and software support engineer. Through her various loves of knitting, reading and camping she also had the great privilege of raising three amazing children and is now a grandmother to seven. Along the journey she attended and received various degrees from Cal. State Dominquez Hills, Cal. State Long Beach, Pacific Oaks College, El Camino & Santa Rosa Junior Colleges.

Upon retirement she dove into her passion of yoga, which she had been practicing on and off since her mom took her to her first YMCA class at the age of 16. Her first certification in her new "life," was Yoga Meets Dance, combining her passion for yoga and dance. She shortly thereafter received her certification to teach yoga, then was certified to teach Silver Age Yoga (yoga for seniors), restorative yoga, yin yoga, chair yoga, and yoga Nidra. She next combined her passion for movement and water, receiving certificates in Aqua Kriya Yoga, Ai Chi, Ai Chi Ne. In the interim she studied and received certification in Qi Gong as well. Next came the challenge of dance. She is certified in Zumba, Zumba Gold, & Aqua Zumba.

To round out her skills, she also loves teaching hula. Melinda teaches throughout the Coachella Valley at multiple venues from private to public to resorts. She loves teaching balance and is dedicated to teaching seniors, so that we may all lead happy, healthy, fulfilling lives. Aging with grace and dignity, she brings humor, compassion, knowledge, and love of life to everyone in every class she is fortunate enough to teach.
