I've always thought I'm not very good at yoga. As a result I've avoided attending classes although I have tried on and off for a couple of years.
I'm now attending regularly and that is down to you. With your instruction and encouragement I am progressing with my ability and me confidence.
The class is more than relaxation and getting the poses right....Your calm and patient method of teaching makes the experience a real pleasure and I always want to come back next week.
Additionally, I've seen and felt some real results from the classes in relation to my body and my performance. I am less stressed when I leave yoga and you always make time for me even though you have a busy and full class.
I feel as though your mine and everyone else's friend as you provide a trusting and encouraging delivery every time.
You are a beautiful person.
Thank you....that is all.
"Michelle is a wonderful, warm and inspiring yoga teacher and in the short space of time that I have been doing the class I have felt so many benefits both mentally and physically. Michelle is the perfect yoga teacher and I really do recommend her."
"I started Yoga with Michelle around 9 months ago. From the start, Michelle was really supportive. I thought my first class would be terifying however it was quite the opposite as Michelle helped all the beginers by recapping on the moves and coming around and adjusting us. While doing this she still catered for the rest of the class.
The classes are great as they are mixed around the seasons and leave me both feeling like i have had a good yoga hour but also relaxed due to the meditation we do."
Thank you, Michelle, for helping my body remain strong, supple and energised and my mind content, tranquil yet focussed. Your Sunday morning class is simply the best start to the day!
Michelle's classes are wonderful and affect you on many levels.
Addressing the physical, emotional and spiritual body through a flow of meditation and mindful movement, the classes are fluid, non-competitive and give you permission to take things at your own pace.
I love the combination of repetition to really consolidate the core asanas and the variation Michelle brings each week to keep the practice fresh and interesting.
I've tried a lot of different yoga but Michelle's particular style has been a really good fit. I feel both worked and relaxed and always leave her class grounded and calm (with my legs shaking!)
Michelle is a lovely, attentive and energetic teacher. I really recommend her classes.
