Michelle, owner of Zin-Zen Yoga and a resident of Bedford, NH for 17 years, has been practicing yoga since 2001. She completed her 200-hour YTT in Vinyasa Power Flow with Frog Lotus Yoga International and is an E-RYT200 and YACEP through Yoga Alliance. Beginning yoga for the physical benefits, her practice quickly grew to include strengthening and healing of the body, mind and soul. Yoga is one of her top passions, second only to her family, including her (now adult - yikes) two sons. In addition to a strong focus on alignment, Michelle’s goal is to provide her students with the guidance to find space both during class and in their daily lives to be present, accepting of their imperfections and appreciative of the simple things. She is described by students as being compassionate and nurturing, while at the same time encouraging them to explore their edge and continually grow their practice. She is excited to share in your practice and looks forward to seeing you on the mat.
