Calling: All beings are stronger than they think they are.
Michelle found yoga in college. After finding a truly enjoyable hour long workout that didn't feel like a regret she was instantly hooked. She started practicing bikram yoga and instantly loved the heat, it helped deepen her practice and helped her find strength and incredible flexibility over the years. She truly found her passion when she took the leap for her first teacher training in 2012. She then completed her Vinyasa and Yoga Sculpt certification at Core Power Yoga, and her latest training was at Be Yoga Burien for a Barre teacher training.
If you aren't in a class taught by Shelly you might be next to her in class. As much as she loves teaching, she loves taking class and being a part of the BYB community. She loves to empower others and find daily mantras to live by. Every class with Michelle is authentic, unique and challenging and will leave you feeling lighter, stronger and better connected to your mind and body. If you are interested in a new challenge or yoga pose, let Shell know. She loves to learn, grow and challenge you with a new playlist every time!
If she's not on her mat, you'll find Michelle hanging with her firefighter twin sis, brothers or hunky lions fan husband, planning her next camping/ hiking adventure, or eating awesome food or serving at Palace Kitchen.

This is a fun class that combines yoga, and weights, in addition to planking, squats, and other exercises to build strength in the core, legs, arms, and back muscles of the body. We work the entire body from head to toe.
