Online Yoga and Mindfulness Classes
We are moving through changing tides, and navigating new territory together as a global community and as we begin diligently practicing social distancing and face lock-down and homeschooling, I find myself feeling strangely comforted in being called home. It feels like the antidote to fast-paced, distracted, mindless living. We are being invited to stop, rest and slow down. We are being afforded the time to make peace with living a simpler life at a more nurturing pace.
We are all feeling as though we are living in uncertain times, and that creates fear and anxiety, and for that reason now, more than ever, we need to keep perspective, breathe and not feed the frenzy.
With the birth of something new comes labour pains, whether that be the stress of homeschooling, anxiety associated with uncertainty, cabin fever or the fear of social isolation.
With most of us already living in conditions of enforced slowness and distancing I want to be able to offer opportunity for connection, togetherness and support.
Michelle is offering ONLINE yoga and mindfulness classes. Meet as a community right from home on Zoom.
These online classes are designed to add to your lives at this time, when we are being given the opportunity to work less, spend time with loved ones, chat, read, play music, cook, and engage in all the pleasures we had forgotten to cultivate as we were chasing other things.
SO IF YOU FEEL THE NEED TO:
- stay connected to others
- move your body safely but need guidance from home
- could do with a calming influence
Work withMichellee one-on-one OR gather a group of friends, a group of kids, teens, or siblings who could do with some yoga or anxiety management or come together as a family for a group experience and meet online together for a class.
Michelle uses evidence-based practices to help you move well, improve mood, calm the nervous system, improve concentration and sleep. No previous yoga or meditation experience is necessary.
Classes are tailored to your individual needs. For all bookings and enquiries please use the contact form below:

This workshop offers a unique opportunity to connect with your tween and explore resilience together using art and yoga in a fun, gentle, supportive environment. You do not need any previous yoga or creative experience to be a part of this workshop.
