About Melinda


“To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.” ~ Osho


Hi, I’m Melinda DiOrio –  a Photographer, Yoga Teacher, Conscious Creative and Explorer. 

My work thrives in the world where creativity, connection and curiosity meet.

I love that the work I do allows me to connect with people. Today this takes place in both my roles as a Registered Yoga Teacher and a Photographer.

In my past career, I designed children’s clothing. While I loved the creative aspect of it, most days I sat behind a computer screen, feeling like something was missing. That’s why I love teaching yoga and taking photographs. Both allow me to get out into the the world and connect with people on a level that inspires me daily. 



When you look at a photograph of yourself, what do you see? If you want to see your inner and outer light shine through in an image, then you’re in the right place. I’ve photographed people and places around the world, and I’m currently booking sessions in New York City. To learn more about my photography services and style, click here



Are you interested in beginning or deepening your yoga practice? I offer private yoga instruction and meditation in the NYC area. Check out the yoga page to learn more about my teaching style and personal practice. 



To read more about my personal journey, head over to the blog. In addition to sharing my explorations of the world, I also write pretty often about an exploration of the self – what it means to practice gratitude, mindfulness and manifestation. (Basically, how to feel really good every day and bring really awesome things into your life.) 



I’m passionate about supporting and working with ethical fashion brands, caring for our Earth, and living and traveling consciously. If you’re a fellow changemaker and would like to collaborate on a project, please email me
