About Michelle Shipley

Lead trainer and co-founder of Mothership School of Yoga established in 2015.

Mama Ship's Background:

In January 2007,  I travelled to Nosara, Costa Rica to study under world-renowned yogis, Don and Amba Stapleton, at the Nosara Yoga Institute, where I became certified as a Yoga Alliance recognized Interdisciplinary Yoga Teacher.  

More recently my studies have included workshops and master classes in Ashaya Yoga lead by Todd Norian, Amy Ipoliti, Rod Stryker, Rodney Yee, Colleen Saidman Yee and Tiffany Cruikshank Yoga Medicine and am now an ERYT 500 Hour Yoga Instructor and Lead Trainer at Mothership School of Yoga.

In yoga we are asked to check our egos at the door – which I can do – but – I travel with my sense of humour.  I find it to be such a good tool when guiding a yoga class!  

The foundations of my public yoga classes are a gentle Hatha Yoga based practice exploring Yin Yoga postures while incorporating a strong emphasis on Iyengar’s alignment principals.  

Breathwork with emphasis on coming home to the body as a major theme is presented through guided meditation and asana practice.
