Michelle Waltz is an E-RYT 500 hour Registered Yoga Teacher and a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP). She is also an Energy Medicine Yoga Master Teacher.
My classes focus on integrating the body and mind through sensory and breath awareness, as well as mindful movement through the yoga postures. Each person is unique and the poses are brought to meet the individual's body and energy level. The ultimate goal is a return to wholeness, including stress reduction, a sense of well-being, increased flexibility, balance and strength.
I completed my 240 hour teacher training at North Carolina School of Yoga in Raleigh (n/k/a Shanti Niketan Ashram) and went on to complete my 500 hour teacher training at Asheville Yoga Center in Asheville, NC. I hold certifications in hatha, vinyasa (flow), yin, prenatal, children's and restorative yoga, as well as meditation. I'm also certified in the Yoga Warrior method for trauma, PTSD and TBI (traumatic brain injury) and I have a Yoga for Seniors instructor's certificate from Duke Integrative Medicine in Durham, NC.
I began the inaugural Energy Medicine Yoga Master Training Program with Lauren Walker in 2018. This is a year-long transformational training for teachers dedicated to mastering the wisdom of EMYoga. EMYoga amplifies the restorative power of yoga by integrating the body's energy systems with time-honored yoga practices.
