Melylah Botté Smith

Melylah has been sharing her love of yoga and wellness with birthing people along their pregnancy, birthing, and parenting journey since 2008.  Her teaching style encourages students to tap into their inner teacher, ancestral wisdom, and listen to their bodies, allowing the practice to meet them exactly where they are, at that moment.

Noticing the yoga and wellness community did not reflect back her diverse background, just like the corporate America she left, she seeks to cultivate space that supports and empowers  people of the global majority. 
Yoga found Melylah in 1999 when she moved to San Francisco and received her 200- hour teaching certificate in 2007 and Prenatal certification through Mama Tree in 2008.  She also holds certifications in Kids Yoga; Infant Massage and Bonding Educator; Aromatherapy; and is trained as a doula through Mama Glow. 
Melylah has much gratitude for her prenatal yoga teacher, trainer, friend and colleague,  Jane Austin, who invited her along this path of sharing yoga with those who are birthing our future.
