Most recently, Michelle published her first book entitled, "I Forgive You, Daddy - Yoga and the Angels Healed Me! - Along with Astrology, Channeling, Dreams, Past-Life Recall, Psychicism, Telepathy, Walk-Ins and the Whales." The book is a deeply moving account of how one can be pushed to the edge of darkness and utilize these healing tools to return to the Light.
Michelle has had a long partnership with Yoga beginning her study in 1970. She started offering classes in 1985 and in 1995 received her training and certification from Kripalu Yoga and Health Center in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. She returned in 1997 for training and certification in Integrative Yoga Therapist through Joseph LePage. Michelle trained in Yoga for special needs children in Evanston, Illinois in 2005 and YEAS (autism spectrum) with Kaylon Family Services of California (2011) and has taught over 8 years for children with special needs (experienced with those diagnosed with autism, Asperger’s, emotionally disturbed, adjudicated and learning disabled), able children, in addition to working with adults and Seniors. She studied dance for 11 years, DansKinetics (at Kripalu) and graduated LCCC with honors with a physical education major. She has taught and lectured at national conventions, at the collegiate level and presented the Yoga Therapy classes for The Cleveland Clinic study entitled, "The Impact of Yoga on a Chronic Pain Population." This study revealed that "Yoga practice yields statistically significant results." (If interested, write firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of the poster.)
Michelle received her Reiki Master/Teacher certification in 1996 and has traveled in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and Pennsylvania (and now Florida) giving Yoga and Reiki continuing education seminars for physical and occupational therapists to integrate Yoga techniques into their work and personal lives. She has herself greatly benefited physically, mentally and spiritually from the practice of Yoga over a span of 44 years.
Michelle also received Certification in the in the OverLight modality of Vagus Nerve Activation and has learned more about the Tube Torus, how it flows, how to work with it to create greater health and balance and the importance of the Vagus Nerve. (The ancient Yogis knew about the VN.) Now that we are in a new energy cycle with much faster vibrations, Michelle has new insights and training to share with her clients and students. Many already have an active Vagus Nerve, but she can enhance it and explain how to strengthen, tone and keep it and its relationship to the Tube Torus creation center active.
