Mixed movement artist and instructor
Melayne Shayne is a Budokon Mixed Movement Artist. She is a passionate movement practitioner as well as global director of the BDK Yoga Teacher Training program.
Before finding Budokon—while directing brand marketing for global trends at the Adidas headquarters in Germany—she has sought to practice and learn from teachers around the globe within various lineages and styles, including Shiva Rea’s Prana Vinyasa, Power Yoga, Pilates, and capoeira.
Drawn to movement and self-expression from an early age, for Melayne moving is more than making shapes with the body—it is a lifelong commitment to self-reflection, personal development, and contribution.
Her love for mixed movement as well as living and sharing the Budokon philosophy is reflected in her commitment to her black belt, and in her grounded, detailed, and compassionate style of teaching. In life and during her classes, she seeks to be inspired and inspire others, and to challenge herself and others. She enables her students to feel, explore, and discover themselves in a unique and authentic way.
She travels extensively, educating and inspiring students through BDK teacher trainings, international festivals, and conferences with her husband Cameron Shayne.
