About Us

Sorella (translates to Sister in Italian) is a community of like-minded health and wellness professionals with a unique focus on a woman's journey through life. We started with a foundation of Pelvic Health Physiotherapy, but understood this was always meant to be a community approach to care. We quickly joined with allies and new team members who were just as excited as we were to have a supportive space for women's wellness. It is by working together with other talented professionals in complimentary disciplines that we can offer our clients the best chance of success.

We are Physiotherapy, Yoga, Acupuncture and Massage Therapy. Our experts are passionate about finding holistic and effective ways to treat difficult medical conditions along with connecting our patients to a higher level of overall wellness.

Meet your Sorella experts below!

Melodie Yoga

Melodie Richardson

Yoga Teacher

Melodie was born and raised on the island of Barbados, and as such, movement, colour and light have been a part of her life since birth; she sources her life from their very presence.
Her love affair with yoga began in 2004 after completing her Naturopathic Medicine degree at CCNM in Toronto. The alignment, movement, and breathwork were so complementary to her ND practice, that she found herself drawn deeply to her mat and ultimately to becoming a teacher.

Melodie completed her first Hatha yoga training in 2006 with Paula Tursi,
and as a life long student has continued her studies. She has completed teacher
trainings in Anusara yoga, Prenatal yoga, and Livity Movement. In addition to this
she is trained in Integrated Myofascial Therapy (MFR) and certified through ITEC
in Reflexology.

Melodie describes her teaching style as playful, expansive Hatha.
