Michelle's interest in flow arts begin with hula hooping. Moving, flowing, and become one with her hoop gave her the same feelings as when she learned to breathe, flow, and become one with her mat.
Originally from South Bend, IU brought her to Bloomington for college. She received her RYT 200 certification through Bamboo Moves hosted by Know Yoga Know Peace in Bloomington.
Michelle teaches Hatha Flow and Touchstone26. She enjoys flowing from pose to pose with time built in to find the ease of the breath and the strength in every moment of stillness.
Her favorite pose is working with inversion to get to scorpion. She feels that you should go upside down at least once a day. Scorpion reminds me to see the strength within the solar plexus, which is correlated with her favorite chakra, the third chakra. Strong bodies, strong minds.
To anyone new to her class, Michelle would say " the hardest part is already over. Making the choice to arrive to your mat is all you must do...and then breathe..and the rest will follow."
When asked what season Michelle would be she replied "I'd be spring. Baron Baptiste once said 'the pose begins when you want to leave it.' In a time of new beginning, I can remind myself to be present with each moment and enjoy the journey."
