Michelle began practicing yoga in 2010 after being overwhelmed with her job working and living with cancer patients and their families. After falling in love with the practice, Michelle completed her 200- hour Bikram teacher training at Melt Hot Yoga in Edwardsville, PA. Wanting to bring the tools of yoga into Allopathic Medicine, Michelle then completed her Master’s degree in yoga therapy at Maryland University of Integrative Health. In addition to managing the House of Care at GMC, Michelle is program manager of Integrative Medicine for the health system. Wanting to expand her teaching repertoire, Michelle will complete her 200-hour Vinyasa Teacher Training at Balance Yoga in Forty Fort in December 2018.
In addition to Yoga, Michelle works in other energy modalities. She completed Level 1 reiki training in August 2016, Level 2 reiki training in February 2017, and is now working under Jasmine Loney to complete her year-long reiki mastery study. Michelle completed her Vibrational Sound Association training in Portland, OR in July 2018 and will be offering group and private singing bowl sessions at the studio.
