Meet Michelle

Hello!  I’m a yoga & movement educator, teacher trainer, an illustrator & designer and a proud new Mommy.  I am deeply interested in how the body moves and in feeling good.  I’m skilled at demystifying the practice of yoga with love and like to invite inquiry into movement.  Simplifying complex postures into smaller, digestible pieces is my jam.  My yoga classes are open to all levels and explore building strength, awareness and resilience in the body, not only through traditional asanas, but through playful movements as well.   In my classes you can expect thoughtful sequencing and natural movement that you can take with you into your daily life.  And in each of my classes, I like to include an opportunity to restore, even for just a few moments. 

As an illustrator and designer, I love to create traditional hand-painted illustrations and lettering, and joining them with graphic design to create unique, one-of-a-kind pieces. 

 

When I’m not teaching or drawing, I’m playing with my daughter and learning how to move all over again.  She is my best teacher.  Spending an entire day with her and my husband is pretty much all I look forward to, and I would happily spend all my days just spending time and exploring with them. 

 

As far as my time in the field, I have been teaching yoga for 7+ years in New York City and in Westchester and hold 500RYT and 200E-RYT designations.  I called Yogaworks in New York my home for many years and found my voice as a teacher and a teacher trainer there.  I am also Yoga Tune-Up Certified teacher.
