Michelle has practiced Iyengar Yoga since 1994 and has been teaching since 2001. She made her first of several visits to Pune to study with the Iyengar family in 2005. She has studied primarily with the late Mary Dunn and with Judy Brick Freedman.
Michelle began ballet training at the age of eight and performed professionally as a modern dancer for twelve years in San Francisco and New York.
Her teaching is strong and precise. She blends physically demanding asana work with clear verbal instruction. Her aim is to lead her students while allowing them to stay connected to their own experience.
She says: “Come to class with curiosity and enthusiasm. Be patient—explore the process. The results will come in their own time.”
