Michele, RYS 200 & M.Div, trained in a vinyasa-style yoga at Yellow Tree Yoga. She teaches private yoga sessions at Mind Body Health Associates, a mental health and stress management center in Findlay, Ohio as well as Simple Gifts Dance.
You can expect an easy-to-moderate flow, with postures welcoming to most body types and accommodations readily available for all. Even if you join us and rest on your mat to breathe with intention, it is a worthwhile practice!
When you join for a practice, wear comfortable clothing that permits easy movement. Consider only a light snack within an hour before practicing, as opposed to a heavy meal. You are welcome to bring a bottle of water and your own mat; if you don’t have a mat, a few are available to borrow or for purchase. At your first visit, you will be asked to fill out a release form.
Have any questions? Feel free to contact Michele with questions. As with any new health regimen, contact a health provider before participating.
