A FORMER teacher accused of having sex with a pupil after a boozy school leavers’ prom is now charging rich clients in Dubai up to £200 for yoga lessons.
Melissa Tweedie, 28, also advertises tarot, palm reading, meditation and hypnotherapy classes in her new career in the millionaires’ playground.
And the ex-PE tutor — who was found to have kissed the lad, then 18, at a hotel — hoped to rake it in hosting an ultra-exclusive 22-hour “retreat” for around a dozen guests costing some £270 each.
She had denied his claims they romped together and a disciplinary panel found that charge not proven.
But she moved to the United Arab Emirates amid the allegations and is now said to be making a fresh start.
A source revealed: “Being forced to leave teaching appears to be the best thing that ever happened to her.
“She’s living her best life out there and seems to be doing really well for herself.
“She’s engaged to a hunky guy, is soaking up the sun, making plenty of money and doing what she loves.
“Being struck off under the circumstances she was must have been really embarrassing, but it couldn’t have worked out better.”
Tweedie, of Glasgow, details her new life online, where she also promotes her lessons and posts photos of beach trips, boozy lunches and parties on private boats.
She worked teaching English as a second language while she studied a 200-hour course to qualify as a yoga instructor during the pandemic.
Tweedie, who stayed first in Barcelona and then Dubai following the end of her teaching career, leads sessions in hatha flow and vinyasa, which includes the famous downward dog pose.
She charges around £57 for one person or up to £204 for five to take part in her 90-minute lessons — and coins in the same amount for meditation classes using crystal bowls and gongs.
Her mystic tarot and palm readings cost nearly £60.
Tweedie also organised a “connection retreat” at a private spa on the UAE coast, an hour-and-a-half from Dubai.
She wrote on Instagram: “I’d love to tell you that positive changes in our life come about naturally.
“But speaking from my personal experience the best things are brought about by difficult times.
“Often something has to happen that deeply affects you or leaves you with no choice but to have this miraculous shift in energy and different perspective in life.
“But just know throughout all of it — the good and the bad — the universe has your back.”
Tweedie was spotted dancing inappropriately with pupils and taking shots with them during their prom in the SWG3 nightclub in Yorkhill, Glasgow.
The General Teaching Council for Scotland banned her from the classroom after ruling she had kissed one boy on a bed following the end-of-term bash.
A panel declared her “unfit” for the job.
