Michelle wants to help people find the best expression of themselves and she believe yoga is one way to do this.
Having come to yoga at the early age of 12, Michelle began taking her practice more seriously post college. Having been a collegiate athlete Michelle wanted to find something that would be less impactful on her joints yet still challenge her physically. Her yoga practice began as a form of exercise, although it quickly evolved from an exercise practice to a lifestyle practice – the marriage of a healthy mind and a healthy body.
Quickly, Michelle developed a growing desire to share this new-found lifestyle with others. While she and her husband lived in England she attained her RYT200 certification from Yoga London. Michelle taught in her local village and joined the admin team of YL. After returning to Boise in 2014 Michelle taught prenatal yoga and volunteered at the VA teaching veterans how tap into the breath and integrate subtle movement into their everyday.
Michelle’s teaching style is powerful and steady. She believes sound fluid movements create strength, which comes out in her vinyasa and yin classes.
Michelle also holds a RYT500, Prenatal Yoga, and Kids Yoga certification. She has led local workshops on making malas and trainings about self-care and burnout, holding space, and meditation.
