Since attending the women’s yoga group, I have noticed some amazing changes in myself...being more patient with myself and others, being more compassionate toward my thoughts and actions and feeling inspired to take more calculated risks in my life. As a result of some of the exercises we’ve done in the group, I feel more empowered to “dance like no one is watching” both literally on a dance floor, and in life! This awareness is so freeing and makes me smile with happiness! I would recommend this group to all women and can almost guarantee they will gain something missing from their life.

APPRECIATION FROM PARTICIPANTS

__________

Through yoga I am learning to enjoy who I am and realize what I have to give. A group of women together is such a powerful energy especially in a warm and loving environment like the yoga group. We learn from each other and can help each other heal.

I was a little nervous about what the dynamic would be and if I would feel safe to be vulnerable. I have to say, from the very first group, I felt completely accepted. The space that Michelle has created is safe and inviting. She has a way of propping you up when you feel small and inspiring you to embrace who you are despite your flaws (because we all have them). I feel so blessed to share this experience with such an amazing group of women. This group has challenged me every day to be more mindful of who I am and accept that I am perfect exactly as I am. Embracing every part of me. I would recommend this group to any woman who has felt alone, or unaccepted or misunderstood. For someone who is looking to feel inspired and for a space to challenge you to grow. The sun always shines a little brighter the morning after I have attended this group.
