Chris Melcer
Role: Office Support

In an almost previous life, my attention was on software development, jogging, ballroom and Latin dancing. More recently, my focus was on my family. Most recently, since mid 2012, I have so enjoyed being a part of The Wellness Institute, which I find to be a truly amazing co.

The Wellness Institute is proud of our legacy of teachers that truly have been more than teachers – each one is an awakener. We’re presenting here the 49 individuals who have taught our classes over the past 30 years. We are deeply grateful to these gifted and dedicated teachers for all that they have contributed to our network and to the world. Namaste, Diane and David
