WORk WITH ME

Tune your body + tone your nervous system

Movement is how we're wired to digest life experience, self-regulate & self-resource.
Mindfulness & meditation combined with movement patterns that balance the needs of modern life helps cultivate strength & flexibility in more than just the body, but also the mind+heart.

Training

After 20+ years of teaching weekly classes, my focus is now centered on training & education on subjects that are missing from most classes & teacher trainings of embodied practice - especially embodied yoga.

Learn how to customize regular practice for yourself & others, honoring uniqueness as well as interconnection.

You’ll help yourself & others move better, feel better, live with strength & fluidity, for as long as possible.

Hoop Vinyasa on Yoga Alchemy

The hoop invites the spirit of play, curiosity & discovery while supporting energetic alignment, balanced transitions, & heightened awareness from including a novel prop.

Movement sequences cultivate patience, sensitivity & awaken the experience of deep connection in the spine. The hoop teaches moving in curves, spirals, & in the non-linear world we inhabit. Hoop Vinyasa pathways are inspired by yoga asana-vinyasa, the art of hoopdance, & research into non-linear functional anatomy. Watch the trailer HERE:)

PRAISE FROM STUDENTS
"Michelle brings a combination of deep knowledge, a playful attitude and sparkling wit and humor to every yoga class. I would recommend Michelle unequivocally to anybody considering a Yoga related practice regime -- from the casual practitioner to those embarking on a life journey of discovery."  ~ John B.

“The body is the instrument of realization. The body is conceived as a musical instrument, tuned by the yoga practice, in order to vibrate spontaneously in harmony with the cosmos.

Everything that brings Spanda (vibration-wave-pulse of awareness) into the body is part of our yoga, as long as the body is in a silent and spacious mood, free from all opaque routines, fears, and needless elaborations of the mind."   

~ Shiva-Svarodaya
