Michelle's love for yoga began when she personally realized the many physical and mental benefits a regular practice brings. Not long after she began a consistent yoga practice, she enrolled in her first 200hr teacher-training program to learn how to share these benefits with others. Michelle has completed many hours of training since, simply because she loves to learn and then share her knowledge with others. Michelle's teaching experience ranges from chair yoga and gentle flows to advanced vinyasa yoga. Michelle's greatest passion is teaching yoga to beginners providing a classroom experience that meets the needs of each student in her care.
