Michelle discovered power vinyasa yoga while living abroad in Australia in 2008. Shortly after her return to the states, she began studying Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga. She has completed over 600 hours of training in the Baptiste yoga methodology and is a certified Baptiste instructor. As a teacher, Michelle strives to empower her students and leave them up to something bigger in their practice through sweaty, challenging asana and deep ujjayi breath. Expect to be eased outside of your comfort zone and try something new in her classes. Michelle is honored to be a part of the Surya Yoga team and looks forward to meeting students and building the yoga community in the NJ/NY area.
