About Melanie

Melanie Leithauser works as a planetary change-agent for consciousness and self-love.  NOW is the time for all humans to awaken to their most potent, loving, and powerful selves.  NOW is the time for all of us to shed any OLD self-limiting beliefs and rediscover our true magic and connection to the Earth. Melanie serves as a catalyst for this transformation through her offerings of yoga, Shamanic Breathwork, integrative workshops, retreats and massage therapy.  Currently living in her hometown of Ft Collins CO, Melanie appreciates the power of travel to give a deeper perspective on life. She has traveled to Peru, Panama, Mexico and France and can’t wait to add Ecuador to the list! For more info on Melanie and all her offerings, visit her website: www.befreehealing.com .
