Kutilaa School of Embodied Resilience

Michelle Logo-GOLD.png

Trainings for  yoga & movement lovers -& teachers- to transform & advance embodied practice through an understanding of our neuro-myo-fascial biotensegrity matrix.

It changes everything.


If you don't know what that means, it's because it's missing from most of the yoga & movement trainings out there. It's a map of understanding embodiment that honors our body's design from within & gets you in tune with your unique alignment - all while remaining true to the teachings of yoga (sometimes more true than modern postural yoga in fact!)

Just as ancient wisdom teaches, science now shows us that the bodymind is ONE.
