Welcome! As a knowledgeable and experienced yoga instructor, I want to make the practice of yoga accessible, fun, and keep you coming back for more! Intrigued? Take a peek below and explore what sets me apart from the rest.



Allow me to introduce myself...

My name is Michelle. I am a full time army wife and mom with a yoga business side hustle. Before teaching, yoga started out as my opportunity to take off all the various hats I wear and focus solely on myself for an hour... (it's since been coined "self-care.") It wasn’t long before my selfish love for yoga cultivated a desire to share my passion and creativity, so I ventured off to Thailand for a 200 hour intensive training course and became a Yoga Alliance certified Ashtanga instructor. 

As a teacher with extensive experience teaching several styles of yoga, with crowds of all ages, abilities, and body types, I aim to use simple and direct language making myself easy to understand. I always keep my teaching style playful and authentic. I take pride in my classes being uniquely sequenced to include inversions, flow, and static stretches; all of which will accommodate the beginner, but also challenge the more practiced yogi. My music playlist varies from day to day, ranging from Bon Jovi to Post Malone but will typically match the vibe and flow. My goal is for every student to feel comfortable and confident. My hope is for every student to laugh, have fun and let go!

Ways To Twyst Up Your Yoga

Did you know businesses can write off yoga provided to their employees as a business expense? Keep your peeps happy and productive with a little exercise during lunch break.


Yoga. But on water. A truly magical experience for beginner and expert yogis and paddlers alike.
