Michelle found yoga over 10 years ago when she was suffering from back and shoulder pain as a result of her intense office job. Once she found her love and passion there was no turning back. She was dedicated and determined when she decided to be a full time yoga teacher 5 years ago. Since then she loves every single minute of teaching. She tries to understand student needs and tailors each class accordingly. She jumps with joy when she sees her students feeling great after a class or improving from regular practice. She hopes to share the benefits of yoga to the body as well as to calming of the mind to anyone who wants to.
