Michelle has spent the last 18 years exploring several styles of Hatha Yoga in depth: Ashtanga, Jivamukti, Yogaworks, Vinyasa Flow and Anusara. In 2002 she met Ana Forrest and was inspired by her style enough to fulfill the rigorous requirements to become a Certified Forrest Yoga Teacher. Today Michelle's Deep Flow classes are a direct expression of her many years on the mat, including 11 years teaching. Michelle has three distinctly different yoga teacher trainings under her belt (Yogaworks 2001 - with Maty Ezraty & Lisa Walford, Forrest 2002, Shiva Rea 2004). An insatiable and curious student, Michelle started studying pole dance in 2008, and she is now certified to teach through Felix Cane Inc/OC Pole Fitness. Her Sensual Yoga classes, a fusion of dance, sensual movement and yoga, receive accolades from women of all ages. In 2012, Michelle completed an 85 Hour Prenatal Vinyasa Training with Jennifer More and is now a Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher (RPYT). Michelle is fiercely caring, thoughtful, funny and creative. She teaches Forrest Yoga, Deep Flow, Sensual Yoga/Pole classes in the SF Bay Area and beyond.
