Movement, Meditation, Sound:
Michelle will take you step by step through some gentle movement and breath to awaken the body. You will then be guided through a simple meditation for connection. The practice takes you on an in depth journey through sound like no other. You will experience drum medicine along with chanting. The celestial sounds of koshi, bar and other chimes will awaken the light hearted playfulness within. Ocean drums and rain sticks will immerse you in the soothing sounds of water as you drift into other lands. The practice is sealed with the magical sounds of quartz crystal singing bowls, shruti box and other beautiful instruments. You will awaken to a new state of being with the rumbling vibrations of the symphonic gong. You will leave feeling rejuvenated and with a deeper sense of grounding, self connection and gratitude.
Bring your yoga mat, a pillow or bolster for under your knees and a blanket. The pillow will help position you so your lower back does not get stiff. The blanket will keep you warm as the body temperature can drop dramatically during sound bath. Feel free to bring a journal or crystals to charge. Water is a great idea as hydration will support the body in any practice. Last, bring an open mind and an open heart. A little magic is about to happen!
What is a Sound Bath you ask?
A sound bath is an immersive full body listening experience that uses sound to nurture the mind and body. This ages old practice uses any number of instruments such as drums, chimes, singing bowls and much more. The use of sound can soothe the parasympathetic nervous system and some studies have even shown a connection between sound and repair at the cellular level.
The use of singing bowls can be deeply therapeutic and help realign the chakras or different energy centers in the body. As each bowl is resonant with a different vibrational frequency, those frequencies are also resonant with each of the chakras.

What Michelle wants you to know:
I found yoga in 2006. What started out as a curiosity for a new "workout" turned into the work IN of a lifetime. Every time I stepped on my mat; it was an adventure in self-discovery. Over time my practice became my safe space and my mat my best friend. I slowly began to immerse myself in literature and workshops until finally taking the first of many teacher trainings in 2017. I never had the intention to teach. Before I even completed my first training, I was asked to lead a weekly series of meditation workshops. When I saw the power of what the core of this practice can offer to those that were seeking to travel inward, how it could help heal and connect in ways nothing else could, I knew the importance of what I had been tasked with. Moving forward it has been my privilege to hold space for anyone looking for greater self-connection. Now in my 40's as a mother of 3 and a wife I am more committed than ever to living my yoga OFF my mat as well as on. While I appreciate the power yoga that was my introduction to the practice my endless desire for growth has led me to extensive inner work with plant medicine, breath and trauma healing. My constant search for evolution has led me to certifications in yoga, reiki and healing breathwork as well as intuitively guided me into my journey as a sound healing facilitator. I am passionate about guiding others in their journey to tapping into their own inner healer. I find myself constantly shifting and expanding so that my offers are an inclusive space! I hope to bring a dynamic and introspective practice where ALL HUMANS from all walks of life can connect mind, body, and spirit safely and lovingly.
