 Hello, I’m Mélissa.

Welcome to the incredible journey of self-discovery and transformation.

My name is Mélissa Loréna Dähler, and I'm thrilled to share my story with you. Get ready to embark on a rollercoaster ride filled with passion, resilience, and the power of yoga.


Picture this: I was born into a family of musicians in the vibrant city of Zürich, Switzerland, on a warm summer day, August 23, 1994. From an early age, art flowed through my veins. My mother, with her French-Spanish roots, instilled in me a love for creativity and expression. I attended a French school in Switzerland, immersing myself in diverse cultures, languages, and ideas.


But my thirst for exploration didn't stop there. I hungered for knowledge and immersed myself in the world of art. I found myself studying at an Italian "Licéo Artistico," where I delved into various artistic disciplines. Painting, sculpting, dancing, and acting all became part of my repertoire. The canvas became my sanctuary, and the stage my playground. Art, in all its forms, became a vital part of my existence, fueling my passion and igniting my imagination.


However, amidst this artistic whirlwind, a new calling beckoned me. At the tender age of 13, I stumbled upon the enchanting world of yoga. Curiosity sparked within me, and I embraced this new path with open arms. You see, I had been involved in numerous sports, pushing my physical limits, but yoga was different. It captivated me on a deeper level, resonating not only with my body but also with my mind and spirit.


I vividly remember the early days of my yoga practice. Holding poses for what felt like an eternity challenged me physically and mentally. It pushed me to my limits, but the beauty of it all was in the transformative power it held. Each session left me with a sense of fulfillment and a hunger for more.


My thirst for knowledge propelled me through a whirlwind of yoga styles. Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Bikram, and more. I voraciously absorbed everything, seeking a deeper understanding of the essence of yoga. But something was missing. I yearned for a teacher who could unveil the ancient secrets and wisdom buried within this ancient practice.


Determined and relentless, I embarked on a 17-year quest. A journey filled with dedication, self-reflection, and unyielding passion. Yoga was not just a physical practice; it was a way of life, a path to self-realization.


Yet, life had other plans for me. At the age of 15, I made a bold decision that would forever change the trajectory of my existence. I left the comfort of my home, venturing out into the vast unknown. Self-exploration became my mantra, as I sought to uncover the true essence of Mélissa Loréna Dähler.


But life has a way of throwing curveballs. Love entered my world, and with it, heartbreak. At such a young age, I was forced to confront life's complexities, and I questioned everything. Relationships became tangled, toxic, and suffocating. I lost myself in the process, withdrawing from my family and succumbing to self-destructive habits. It was a turbulent teenage phase, but little did I know that it would become the catalyst for my own metamorphosis.


A turning point came at the age of 24. Something within me ignited, screaming for change. I mustered the courage to walk away from the corporate world as an international trust officer in Zürich. The allure of financial security and societal expectations no longer held power over me. I yearned for a life of purpose, fulfillment, and authenticity.


Embracing the unknown, I embarked on a remarkable journey of self-discovery. I bid farewell to my life in Switzerland and set forth on a path of exploration, a pilgrimage to uncover the depths of my soul and the wonders of our beautiful planet. Travel became my companion, introducing me to extraordinary individuals and breathtaking landscapes that stirred my spirit.


Amidst this transformative odyssey, I found myself drawn to the enchanting island of Bali. Immersed in the island's mystical aura, I felt a deep resonance within my being. Bali became my sanctuary, and it was here that I completed my first yoga teacher training.


The training was a revelation — a profound awakening that turned my world upside down. I embraced a life of harmony, balance, and self-realization. Through the practice of yoga, I reconnected with my family on a profound level, forged genuine connections with like-minded souls, and basked in a newfound sense of purpose and contentment.


Inspired by my own transformation, I felt an unyielding desire to share the invaluable tools and wisdom I had acquired along my journey. I returned home at the age of 27, ready to build a sanctuary where others could embark on their own transformative paths. And so, Move Breath & Connect was born.
