Michelle has been teaching yoga since 2008. Her career began as a dancer in New York and over the last ten years evolved her study of movement and dance to include yoga, personal fitness and Zesa. Movement isn’t restricted to just on a mat or in a studio – or gym, but a dance and flow from one moment to the next. In mind, body and spirit. She has led yoga teacher trainings and guided many students to find their path in yoga. Michelle believes she is as much a teacher as she is a student. It is unique connections with others she seeks, a voice to the authentic soul and a dance with the wild heart.

CTG Yoga loves Naked Nina's like we love savasana. If you're unfamiliar, Naked Nina's is the free-spirited kid-sister of Nina's Cafe located in the heart of Cathedral Hill in Saint Paul. Aside from being long-yearned for sanctuary from the hustle of the city, this beautiful Nutirent Bar concots some of the most delicious elixirs you can fathom. Seriously. Whether you're a diehard juice + kombucha fan, or new to the idea of nourishing from the inside out, we are pretty certain after you try what these folks have to offer, you will feel the magic. We are SO excited to have them sharing with us complimentary Kombucha from Prohibition Kombucha. Stick around after the meditation to re-balance and re-charge with some sparkling yumminess!
