After years of competitive gymnastics, Michelle found yoga in 2006 in an effort to heal and connect to her body and spirit. After an ankle injury she could no longer compete and found yoga was able to fill what she felt had been missing. Over the years, the practice gradually infused into every aspect of her life. Michelle completed her first 200 hour training program in 2013 and is still continuing her education further. Some of Michelle's teachers and biggest influences include, Doug Swenson, Kino McGregor and Meghan Currie. Michelle is passionate about teaching and making yoga accessible to the community. Michelle’s motto is a body in motion stays in motion.
Michelle leads a vegetarian lifestyle and loves spending time with family and friends. Michelle's favourite pose is Urdhva Dhanurasana because it is an uplifting posture. It stimulates the nervous system and opens the heart, and can leave you glowing with energy and vitality for the rest of the day.
"I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teachings of my soul". – Rumi
