Our Teachers

Michelle’s aim is to make yoga accessible for everyone.

This stemmed from a trip to visit family at home in England as her father was very ill at the time.  He saw her practicing yoga and said “I wish I could do that.”  Those words touched her deeply as she knew he was able to do yoga and he would benefit from it and may aid in his healing. Michelle’s hope is to reach all people out there who think they can’t as she has often thought this but has found that on many occasions she can.  This got her thinking about others who also thought yoga isn’t accessible for them and through Michelle’s own healing with asana and meditation she has been shown that yoga is so much more than just the physical practice – it gives us the greatest gift of all, connection to our breath and to ourselves, mind, body and spirit.

Michelle had wanted to do a yoga teacher training to deepen her own practice as she had been truly touched by yoga’s transformative power internally and externally.  Her father’s words ignited her passion to share her love of yoga and on her return home from England she saw that Ananda Wellness was offering a teacher training and knew this was the path she had to follow. Michelle graduated from Ananda Heart Bliss-Hatha Yoga (RYS 200 Yoga Alliance) in 2015.  She is truly thankful to Mary and the teachers at Ananda for their love and inspiration.

She teaches her classes from her heart, creating an uplifting, safe environment for students to begin to explore and expand within their own bodies and consciousness.

Feeling most at home being outdoors with nature, Michelle has taken her yoga off the mat through the studies of medicinal herbs with Rosemary Gladstar, surfing and long hikes with her dog, Kekoa. .

Michelle is planning on taking a Restorative Yoga Teacher training (Relax & Renew – Yoga for stressful times) in the autumn with Judith Lasaster, to further her knowledge and love for a deeper restorative practice.
