In the 200-hour teacher training at Vastu School of Yoga, Michelle was taught the gentle confidence to teach Hatha yoga, Sivananda style. In 2016, she went to Ajijic, Mexico to Yoga Veda 200-hour teacher training to renew and expand on her Sivananda experience and added Ayurveda and meditation.

"Enjoy the time for self development !"
This is a great short course for people that want to develop there yoga practice and start to teach, also those you love yoga but have not had time for themselves and want to get back I to it. It's tough but not intense, you get nearly full weekend of and Tullum is cool to explore on a bike it has big Mayan Ruins and the snorkling is cool especially with the turtles 😎

"nice people but disappointing experience overall"
I have a lot to say regarding the professional aspects of the YTtraining itself and I really hope that the 2 teachers won't take it personal as the aims of this feedback isn't to criticise them as persons, but to share our impression after experiencing their training.
Most of us in the group shared our views during the last week and we were all feeling the same way...mostly desapointed by the training...
So the best thing we could do is to be honest and give a real feedback of what we felt during these weeks. Because there is nothing best we can wish our teachers than to improve and raise the overall level of the training they are offering.
The most positive thing was about the people themselves : Two nice and kind ladies as teachers and a small group of 5 students, from beginners to advanced, from 28 to 65. Nice variety of backgrounds and culture creating a respectful, friendly and supportive atmosphere ;-)

As one that has enjoyed many teaching styles and multiple instructors on and off for many years... for me, it comes down to the teacher as much style. Michelle is that teacher. After moving to Tulum I did everything but yoga. My problem was that I kept getting injured.
Michelle was giving a yoga class close to our house, so I went. Luckily for me it was a small class and she noticed I was struggling. She came over and softly told me how I could change the pose to lessen the discomfort. It was obvious as she spoke that her anatomy knowledge is excellent.
Michelle has a gift that few are lucky to receive. She has continued her education from many instructors and has taken the information and used it to make her own dynamic lessons.
