I am Melody Lima, founder of YogaMatUnrolled. I am a yoga and 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 direction. Sound familiar? Can 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.



I am an E-RYT 500 Hour registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliace. With over 15 years of experience and several certifications, I have taught yoga and meditation to everybody: busy moms, kids, pre- & post-natal moms, seniors, beginners, overworked dads, adults with disabilities and many students looking to advance their practice.

I love to teach from the 8 Limbs of Yoga presented in the Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.

I mentor and teach students earning certifications in yoga teacher trainings. Need to expand your knowledge? I am a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP). I teach workshops and programs that qualify as Continuing Education hours for Registered Yoga Teachers (RYTs).

Most yogis I know, myself included, love to read. Looking for a book or an article?

Here at YogaMatUnrolled, I will share with you my articles and some book reviews.

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

Living only 10 miles from New York City, my off the mat tools are inspired by attending 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 and off the yoga mat with students and parents.

Now it is a growing community for Everbody 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.
