Michelle began practicing yoga in 2000 when a coworker invited her to take the class she taught at a local gym. The physical practice was immediately intriguing but it was not love at first class. Michelle continued to be drawn to yoga and it was there she realized this was the only activity she had ever experienced that would quiet her overactive mind. In 2011 Michelle competed the 200 hour teacher training at Verge Yoga and in 2015 Michelle completed Wall Vinyasa teacher training with Erica Taxin Bleznak.
While it took some time for Michelle to find consistency in her yoga practice there is no denying she was being called to a journey of discovering her authentic self. Each time on the mat she continues to seek the truth in herself while lovingly meeting others where they are on their journey. The truth cannot be unseen, it can only push, shove and sometimes propel you forward to where you are meant to be. Michelle enjoys deepening her students alignment awareness with playful exploration while providing mindful meditative flows. She wants all of her students to share the benefits of self inquiry and self discovery on their mat while feeling the freedom to be playful and have fun. She believes that yoga is like recess for adults. A place where you can be free to try new things, connect with others or play by yourself and leave feeling focused and energized for what awaits.
Michelle lives in Plymouth Meeting with her husband, Phil, 2 amazing and energetic daughters, Sophia and Caelin, and their dog Mowgli.
