Michelle began her yoga journey in the early 2000’s while living in Los Angeles. The allure of still moments and challenging asana was very strong. She continued her practice over the years while also becoming a registered nurse, nursing instructor, and mother. She is currently serving the community in her leadership position in public health at the Johns Hopkins School Nursing. She has been living in and around Baltimore since 2004, practicing variety of yoga styles.

The pandemic year offered an amazing opportunity for her to train to become a yoga instructor with teachers from the studio where originally fell in love with yoga. Michelle brings to her practice a passion for inclusivity and accessibility.

Michelle has two young children and a house full of pets in Baltimore. Her favorite hobbies are cooking, cycling, running, and hiking…all of it outdoors as much as possible.
