Michelle attributes much of her desire to delve into her yoga practice to her years of ballet training. Having had to connect to the body at a very young age, it was refreshing to start a practice that was rooted in, not only, connecting to your body, but also your breath, mind and self. For Michelle, practicing yoga is all about connecting to oneself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Integrating her training from Kripalu, Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative and Yoga Therapy, Michelle works to create classes that inspire students to explore these aspects in an intuitive, relevant, invigorating and fun environment.
“I believe that practicing yoga is all about connecting to yourself both physically and mentally. Yoga and your practice is constantly evolving along with all other aspects of your life. In the same way that it is sometimes essential to alter you pace of life due to circumstance beyond your control, for example when you get sick and must slow down, it is also important to adapt your yoga practice to meet these different paces. Sometimes a more active, vinyasa flow style is called for, and at other times we need 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.
