Beginners Yoga


This class is taught by:

Melanie Summers

Melanie’s first yoga experience came at the age of 17 when she and her mother attended a vinyasa style class together in her hometown of Chandler, Arizona. She had recently left competitive swimming due to injury and was looking for an activity to fill that void. She gradually began practicing more frequently, exploring the spiritual nature of the practice in addition to the physical. Melanie was inspired to pursue teacher training upon going on a week-long yoga retreat, hoping to expand her breadth of knowledge and deepen her personal practice. After graduating from college and moving to Redlands for her job she finally found the opportunity to do so, studying under Phil and Sandrine at Inner Evolution. She quickly realized that she had a passion for teaching yoga, grounded in a philosophy of mindful alignment and movement with breath. Melanie believes the practice is deeply personal and the asana should be modified to the individual. She works to bring all limbs of yoga into her practice on and off the mat and hopes to instill that in those she teaches.

Philip Fulton

Born in Kansas and raised in Africa, Philip’s unique upbringing and extraordinary life experiences provide him with a progressive and unparalleled insight into teaching yoga. Philip began studying Yoga in 2003 as a means to improve his rock-climbing skills. He couldn’t believe the power and flexibility he developed that took his climbing to the next level. Not only did his physical strength and stamina improve dramatically, but he found mental clarity; that same ‘connection’ that was there on the rock he found on the yoga mat.

Philip has been certified in both contemporary and classic methods of yoga and continues to blend the best of both worlds, resulting in a style the builds not only physical power, but mental strength and agility as well. No matter what physical shape a person is in, from Martial Arts Masters to Executive Assistants, Philip believes that anyone will benefit from the effects of regular yoga practice.

“I’ve had the privilege to work with some of the area’s top athletes, from Olympic hopefuls to the weekend warriors,” says Philip. “Yoga has helped take us to the next level.” philip@innerevolutionyoga.com Mobile: 951-204-2793
