I specialize in working with students who have musculoskeletal pain…pain that affects the muscles, tissues, tendons, ligaments and bones, as well as the psychological effects of living with chronic pain…stress, anxiety, and depression. In over a decade of teaching I’ve had numerous clients find that yoga has improved some of their symptoms. They have seen a decrease in their pain response, anxiety and stress level, an increase in mobility, flexibility, strength and balance, and experience a more restful nights sleep.
As your “Wellness Engineer“. My approach is to utilize different styles of yoga – Viniyoga, Kundalini Yoga, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, meditation, breathing techniques, and deep relaxation to address all aspects of a healthy lifestyle. I have taken extensive training and specialty certifications to enable me to work safely with people with injuries, limitations, and other health complications.

Thank you Michele for another knowledgeable, interesting and very helpful workshop: Posture for Healthy Aging.
This four week course was very detailed and with helpful homework…yes homework: daily exercises of yoga practice for good posture.
More important though were all the suggestions on how to apply the given tools to my lifestyle and implementing the posture changes throughout the day.
I can already feel improvements in my posture or at least I’m very confident I will get better with all the knowledge I’ve gained in this workshop.
This is my second workshop with Michele and I look forward to the next one.
I recently attended Michele’s Posture for Healthy Aging class and learned that good posture is muscle memory that begins with brain training. Think of the pelvis as a basin of water, keep the water balanced and in the basin. Keep your eyes on the horizon and your chin will be parallel to the ground. These tips for brain training and many more are in Michele’s presentations that are both educational and motivational. Her suggestions for yoga poses and flows that lead to strengthening and stacking the body are captured well in written flows and videos and provide the tools to place what you learn into practice. And, these articles are your homework assignments (omwork). Michele is very knowledgeable in how and why the body reacts as it does and then how to make improvements in flexibility and movements with a yoga practice. She demonstrates each pose, explains the benefits of the pose, and provides practical suggestions for your improvements in the pose. And, she does all this with a splash of humor. Michele is a master of the practice of yoga and an excellent class leader who wants the yogi to achieve the most benefits from his/her efforts.
