Michelle has been interested in the mind, body, soul connection from a young age. Having witnessed the positive effects of a Meditation practice for her father, the seed was planted early! On a physical level, studying Ballet meant that there was a learned connection to the body and so it was both comfortable and refreshing for Michelle to begin her Yoga Asana (posture) practice.
Michelle completed her first teacher training in 2010 at Kripalu, a world class orgnization for Yoga and Health and Wellness. Since then she has completed numerous other trainings in Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, Yoga Therapy, Meditation and Ayurveda. She has integrated her training from these styles to create fluid, fun and inspiring classes.
“For me, Yoga is about connecting to yourself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. This connection is what allows me to stay present to what I want and need. My practice is constantly evolving along with all other aspects of my life. In the same way that it is sometimes essential for me to alter my pace of life due to illness or unexpected circumstances, I find it essential to adapt my yoga practice to meet these different needs. Sometimes a more active, flow style, is called for, and at other times a more restful, restorative practice. I believe that by connecting to your own rhythm and it’s cycles it is possible to achieve and maintain balance and health.
Remaining connected to this rhythym and to your practice can help to create clarity around your passions and desires and can facilitate in gaining the strength, courage and focus to live them!-
I look forward to meeting you!"
Michelle is currently venturing deeper in the mind, body, soul, connection studying Psychotherpy, BioEnergetics and Energy Healing at The Integral Healing Centre of Toronto.
