I truly believe that yoga is an integral part of a healthier lifestyle and healthier aging. I encourage movement for healthier aging using gentle, and dynamic yoga, inclusive options, a less is more approach.
Curious for a while about yoga but hesitant due to the popular media images of slim young women shaped like pretzels. At 40, I found my courage to take that first step and joined my first yoga class and began to explore a personal practice (2004). Ten years (2014) later, I chose to share my yoga experience with others and I became a Certified Yoga Instructor from Atlantic Yoga Teacher Training (AYTT - Kripalu Inspired Yoga) and Certified Yoga for Healthy Aging Teacher by Baxter Bell and Melina Meza.
My goal is to make yoga welcoming and approachable. To invite people to explore yoga while they learn to maintain or improve strength, balance, flexibility, agility, manage stress and cultivate equanimity with a balanced practice of movement and breath work.
My classes are for anyone wanting a gentle, mindful yoga class. You are encouraged to move at your own pace and to listen to your needs. My classes include guided verbal cues and choices for taking care of oneself.
I am inspired by nature, my garden, my happy go lucky dogs ( my walking companions) whether it be the beach or the forest or a wander through town. I explore my creative side through knitting, rug hooking, with a sprinkling of photography, writing and other curiosities ... nurtured by nature and creativity, food for the soul.
In light. Michelle.
