VP & Global Brand Director Budokon University & Academy

Budokon Warrior Women Tribe Leader

Melayne Shayne is a Budokon Mixed Movement Athlete and founder of the Warrior Women Tribe. She is the VP of the Mixed Movement Arts System Budokon and Director of the Budokon Yoga Program and Teacher Training. 

For Melayne, moving is more than creating forms and shapes with the body: it is a lifelong commitment to self reflection and personal development. 

Before finding a fully-authentic expression through the empowering practice of martial arts in Budokon, Melayne sought to practice and learn from teachers around the globe within various lineages and styles as Shiva Rea’s Prana Flow, and ballet.

Melayne’s love for practicing and sharing mixed-movement and living her philosophy is reflected in her grounded teaching style, commitment to her Budokon black belt and most notably, in the passion she has for bringing women together through her Warrior Women events and global network. Always a student before a teacher, she seeks to be inspired and inspire others; challenge herself and challenge others. 

Melayne’s Warrior Women events create and hold a space of empowerment, accountability and leadership for women who are on this journey as well. Her events, workshops and retreats create a unique opportunity for women to discover themselves and hold space for real, honest, yet connected and co-creative growth.
