Michelle has an understanding of how trauma impacts the mind, body, spirit and heart. Her awareness of the world through her experience as a black woman allows her to know first hand how privilege and power operate.
She understands the toll that oppression can take on individuals and the collective physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
Whether in an anti-oppression training, yoga space, individual or group intuitive healing session, healing and wholeness are at the center of how she approaches all of my work in the world. Michelle has spent many years on the front lines of justice movements craving a space for healing through ritual, ceremony and sacred practice. A yoga teacher for over ten years, she has sat in many spiritual spaces and yoga communities whom lacked an awareness of justice and activism. She is interested in spiritual spaces that center activism and social change spaces that center spiritual practice.
Michelle is the author of Skill in Action: Radicalizing Your Yoga Practice to Create a Just World. She inspires change that allows people to stand in their humanity and wholeness.
