Michele first started her yoga journey as a runner looking to help soothe tight hamstrings and low back pain. She first practiced yoga with VHS tapes at home but finally got the courage to walk into Shantih’s Alignment Based Yoga class at Midtown Yoga and was hooked! After ten years of practice, Michele began teaching and completed her 200RYT in 2014 with Grow Yoga School/ Hot Yoga Plus. Michele’s teaching is both instructional and playful as she combines traditional postures and sequences with some creative choreography & music. Building flexibility is important, but strength is the focus of her flows. Michele lives in East Memphis with her husband, Brian, their two very active boys Luke and Henry, and their family dog, Minnie.
