What People Are Saying
Michelle’s yoga classes are a pleasure and something I very much look forward to.  I always leave her class feeling relaxed, with a renewed sense of calmness.  Michelle has a unique teaching style and awareness of the participants in her class, making those new to yoga feel welcome and comfortable.  At the same time, she presents options for the various movements and poses she is teaching which challenge those not so new to yoga.  The rhythm and cadence Michelle sets in her classes is rare and especially important to me.  It allows ample time to check posture, breathing and to sufficiently stretch with each movement.  In sum, Michelle’s skills and teaching style are second to none. Tim Cornell

Michelle tailors her classes to all experience levels and also demonstrates the different modifications for each pose; this way everyone benefits. I also appreciate her hands-on approach. She’ll come around and help you to make the necessary adjustments so that you get the most out of each pose. My favorite part of her classes is how I feel afterward. I always feel deeply grounded, relaxed, and acutely aware of my surroundings. Heather Bybee Coleman

I began receiving monthly massages after I was in a car accident in 2007, in which I broke my leg and neck. I had trouble finding a consistent person that was able to understand my body and what it needed. Then enter 2012, when Michelle and I reconnected. Michelle handled my first and ongoing massages with professionalism, courtesy, and above all, she listens to my body and understands what it needs. I love her deep tissue massages and I have never had someone release tension from my neck the way that she does. Michelle often plays calming music, carries essential oils, and holds polite conversation while giving a massage. I highly recommend Michelle for any of your massage needs.
