I've been running Essence of Living for over 19 years and more than one million students have passed through our humble doors! Sharing the teachings of Yoga and Pilates is truly my calling and I feel so incredibly blessed to be here doing what I love most!
I believe all of the best teachers are committed students, so while I have already completed countless tranings and sat with some of the world's greatest teachers, I am forever learning and growing.
Essence of Living offers teacher tranings, retreats, community classes and workshop, but even more deeply we are a support network, a community and a home away from home.
I can't wait to support you to breathe, bend and blossom!
Essence of Living acknowledges and pays respect to the First Nations People, the traditional custodians, past, present and emerging of the lands, seas and skies.
Essence of Living values diversity and is committed to providing an inclusive service for all people.
Michelle, is a wealth of yogic knowledge and delivers no nonsense creative vinyasa flow classes that constantly evolve and challenge me. I go to her classes to be inspired and move my body in new ways I had not previously thought possible. Michelle is kind yet pragmatic and always focuses on safety first. Best of all is her authenticity. Michelle embodies and lives her talk.
Life changing - every person I have seen come out the other side of Essence trainings is more grounded, confident & purposeful – the difference is chalk and cheese. Michelle empowers you with the skills not only to be an outstanding Yoga, Pilates or Barre teacher, but with the tools of inner reflection to forever be a student of life. Its also super fun - #winnnnnnninggggg
Essence of Living, Michelle and all of the incredible teachers and students have honestly changed my life. From the diverse range of classes, events, workshops and trainings to the abundance of love, fun, support and more. I truly couldn't put into words how incredible Essence is. Highly, highly recommend, for classes, friendships, self discovery and so much more♡♡♡♡
