Michelle was born and raised in Daytona Beach, Florida where she grew up on a boat with her dad and on a horse with her mom. Michelle is a definite Sun Worshiper and is grateful to have spent her time soaking up all of that Vitamin D (although the wrinkles aren't as awesome). While attending college, she studied psychology and embarked on the oh-so-fun long-distance relationship with her Marine in North Carolina. After graduation, she married her Marine and it was a great party.
So the Newlyweds began figuring out what the hell they were going to do now that they were "grown ups"(they tried to be wine drinkers, but that didn't really work out). What did work out was a surprise blessing in the form of a 6lb baby girl! This little girl is freaking awesome! She also occasionally makes her parents wish they became wine drinkers. ;)
Michelle was asked by a friend and yoga instructor (who shall remain anonymous) named Toni (oops) to attend her yoga class. "It is a 90 minute class in a 95 degree room, it will be great!" Toni stated. Finally Michelle found the courage to go to this really long, and really hot yoga class. And well, what do you know, Toni was right. It was amazing. A few years later, Michelle completed her 200hr RYT Training and hoped to share this crazy sounding but amazing practice with others.
The family added one more into the mix with the arrival of a Little Man, who is so much fun (and very exhausting). A new job moved the family to Colorado (where it snows! eek!) Michelle now teaches yoga, Buti Yoga, and is Partnerships Manager for YogiApproved.com.
The Florida natives are adjusting well to the snow and seasons, and continue to count their many blessings. <3
