Michelle was introduced to yoga as a teen at Unity Woods Yoga center in Washington DC. From then on she continued to study different traditions of yoga and movement modalities. Michelle has found yoga to provide a strong counterpoint to modern day living, and is a lifelong student and practitioner.
Michelle’s classes tap into the tempo and energy of the students, inviting them to tune in and discover their present state and all their inner resources. She provides students with a solid foundation to explore yoga as a creative practice that allows them to strengthen, unwind, and open up to their highest self.
In 2008, Michelle completed her 200-hour Interdisciplinary yoga teacher training at the Nosara Yoga Institute , under the tutelage of directors Don and Amba Stapleton. She has continued to study with Nosara Yoga Institute, and Evolve Wellness, receiving advanced trainings as a yoga guide, a pranassage practitioner, and a yin yoga teacher. Michelle has studied with a variety of master teachers from different yogic traditions such as Biff Mithoefer, Daniel Hickman, Sarah Powers, and Ann Hunt. Michelle credits the wise guides she has encountered in life to encourage her growth on and off the mat, and is inspired each day by all the wonderful people she has met through yoga.
