After practicing yoga for a number of years, Michelle took the opportunity of free time upon completion of her Honours in Psychology to pursue a yoga teacher training qualification in 2016.
She completed a 300-hour Vinyasa Teacher Training with Jim Harrington Yoga Union, equipping her with a teaching approach saturated with the anatomical and physiological processes involved in asana practice.
Michelle’s aim is for students to be given the space to playfully connect with their bodies and minds in a physically safe way, while moving through creative sequences.
Although Vinyasa is her first love, Michelle is also trained in Bikram, and ramps up the intensity of her Vinyasa classes to leave you sweating after a Power class.
When not teaching or practicing yoga, you can find Michelle working on her Master’s in Neuroscience through the University of Cape Town, spending time with the animals of her own or helping out at animal shelters, or with her nose in a book. An important fact about her is that she requires chocolate milk to function!
