I am Melody Lima, founder of YogaMatUnrolled. I am a yoga & meditation teacher, wife, mom, plant-based food explorer, lover of books and sometimes writer. I feel like a creative adventurer telling my story.

I wear many hats and find myself going in many different directions. Sound familiar? Can go here You relate to a busy life-style?

Yoga has colored my path with many tools to make me whole, healthy, active and curious.

My wish is for everyone to have the exact tools they seek for a life filled with Happiness, Fun, Gratitude, Health and Abundance.

Always a student, I continue my education every year. Currently, I am learning about Yin Yoga and Neurosculpting.

Living only 10 miles from New York City, my off the mat tools are inspired by attending in a ballet performance, dinner at a great restaurant, a tour of big museums, documentary films and loads of organic shops to tingle my pallet.

YogaMatUnrolled started as a blog to share my observations on & off the yoga mat with students and parents.

Now it is a growing community for Everybody who wishes to live a whole, creative, healthy focused, dreams-come-true life. With some cool jazz, a thick book and a hot cup tea, too.
