Out of your head and into your body!
Yoga has been a driving force in my life for 5 years. I have developed my own creative fusion of Vinyasa and Kundalini Yoga, using pranayama breathing techniques, meditation, and asana postures in each practice to inspire expression of the body and liberation of the mind.

Soothing yet rigorous, active yet mellow, supportive yet by no means suffocating -Michelle is an artist who knows what artists need most: balance." --Sarah Dohrmann - Writer "I took Michelle's class after a frustrating week of songwriting . She thoughtfully lead us through a practice designed to release creativity, which left me more confident, focused, and tuned in to my own process. Michelle is calm and prepared, and has an obvious knowledge of both yoga and the challenges of the working artist. She approaches both with a curious mind and an open heart." --Laurelyn Dossett - Composer, Musician.
