Melinda’s website

Melinda is passionate about sharing the practice of Baptiste Yoga as a lifestyle beyond the walls of a studio. She is committed to supporting others through building community and causing each and every student to discover their own greatness. As a teacher, she believes it is important that classes be challenging yet accessible for all levels. Her students are empowered physically and mentally by stretching the boundaries of their current comfort zone and opening up access points to create possibilities in their life.

When not at home in Oregon spending time with family, friends and teaching at her two studios in the Willamette Valley, Melinda travels the world sharing yoga, assisting Baptiste programs and leading retreats/teacher trainings. She is an explorer of the great outdoors, a café connoisseur, and is easily inspired by life, art and a good kombucha.

Maya Davis’s dream of becoming a yoga instructor began when she first visited Nicaragua in 2009. Looking for a way to enhance her surfing performance and prevent injury, she began a daily practice of Vinyasa yoga and was immediately hooked. Not only did she see her flexibility, strength, breath and body awareness improve, but yoga provided the same meditative quality she experienced and loved when riding waves.

Life took an amazing turn in December 2015 when she found a beautiful studio location in Casco Viejo, Panama City. Together with her husband and passionate yogi Edwin Davis they opened Casco Yoga in January 2016. The studio combines their dreams of teaching and practicing yoga. She holds her 200 E-RYT certification and her Mat I and II Pilates certificates. She is also a Reiki Level Two practitioner and offers private Reiki sessions.
