In addition to her yoga training, Michelle has completed various meditation and mindfulness courses. The one that had deepened her practice the most was a 10 day silent retreat, lead by S.N. Goenka, learning the technique of Vipassana meditation. This retreat was profound for her, and has strengthened her understanding of mindfulness and equanimity. Later, she completed 100 hours of specialized meditation training with Jivasu. This refined her practice as she brings more understanding of the benefits of mindfulness and meditation to her classes and retreats.
Michelle meshes her strength in her understanding of the breathing techniques and movement of yoga to help others find their way as they embark on their own journey. Her life experiences broadened her vision and understanding, which allows her to see and appreciate all moments in the now. This has allowed her classes to be conducted with careful attention to her students needs . She has the uncanny ability to see situations from a different angle, thus creating the moment of awareness for others.
In 2015 Michelle chose to deepen her practice by travelling to India. It was there that she was able to absorb in the culture as well as complete 100 hours in yoga asanas, philosophy, and meditation. During that time, Michelle had the inspiring opportunity to learn an immeasurable amount of information which she brought back with her and uses in her classes. She enjoys learning through her own life journey, as well as helping others find their way.
