Wellness Coaching Sessions

Wellness Coaching turns your struggles into your successes!
Is there a change you’ve been wanting to make? Are you going into a difficult situation and want to prepare yourself to stay grounded and centered for success?
Do you want to give yourself the tools and skills to always show up as your best self?

Wellness Coaching is so much more than adding exercise to your life or losing weight, although it can be those things.
It’s about changing habits, improving your lifestyle, polishing off the old habits and things you cling to that keep your bright inner light from shining fully.

Michelle uses the tools she has learned through grief and loss, yoga, Ayureda, grief education, reiki, and study of spirituality to help you cope with challenges and make positive changes from the inside out so you are set for success!

Words of Praise

"Michelle is my weekly burst of sunshine! When I felt discouraged after 15 years of practicing yoga because of my advancing multiple sclerosis, Michelle opened my eyes to the wonders of adaptive yoga and encouraged me to join her class. I'm now thriving in a beautiful new community of people like me who are buoyed by her trademark enthusiasm, patience and humor -- always underscored by her attention to our safety. With Michelle's gentle guidance, I am inspired and empowered to keep reaching for my edge, wherever it is, on any given day!" -- SS


"Michelle has a gift and a unique combination of skill, passion, and ability to connect even with skeptical clients going through a very difficult time in their lives.
Specifically, Michelle helped me relax, feel better about myself and the world around me. I have been able to sleep better, feel less stress and get in the best physical, emotional and spiritual shape of my life- and six months on I continue to utilize the meditation and gratitude practices she shared with me!
No matter what comes my way big or small or just everyday life challenges I am grateful for the tools I have learned and continue to practice and hone from Michelle’s expertise and caring. Thanks, Michelle you are the best! -- AR


Michelle is a thoughtful, attentive, and knowledgeable teacher. I have learned a lot from my yoga classes with her. She has helped me build strength and deepen my practice. She is very tuned into her student's struggles with injuries or physical problems. She has helped me manage and heal my own issues. I am very appreciative that I have had the opportunity to be her student. -- DE


I am feeling grateful today for many things…..among them is all you have given me since February when I started yoga. You radiate kindness and healing in every class. I have benefited from your presence. I believe all of your students have, as well. -- DH
