By helping individuals gracefully manage daily stressors and life adjustments through yoga, mindful movement, meditation, breath work, and essential oils, Michelle offers the practical, spiritual assistance needed to make life work, and to work through life.

“I am passionate about connecting with others and teaching them how to build physical and emotional strength, improve mental flexibility, and reduce stress and feelings of overwhelm, worry, fear, frustration, and sadness through the system of yoga. With a strong intuition, I am able to easily sense what someone is feeling in their body, when they don’t have the words to express themselves. Clients find a sense of calm, peace, physical and mental wellbeing, and the skills to manage uncomfortable symptoms, through bringing an awareness to patterns in their mind, movements, and breath.”
