Michelle Stafford has been teaching yoga for over 8 years, and personal training for over a decade. Her focus is on alignment, spinal stabilization, joint mobility, and overall strength. She combines her knowledge of strength training with yoga, and creates a healthy fitness routine suited just for you.
Health goes beyond the aesthetic. How do you feel at the end of the day? Are you able to complete your daily tasks with energy and vigor? Physical fitness is about longevity, and optimal wellness. Move your body in a quality way (asana), eat healthy food, meditate (dhyana), and do breathing exercises (pranayama) on a daily basis.
Whether you attend a group session or experience a one-on-one session with Michelle, you will certainly have an effective workout, while having a great time.
Exclusive to women’s wellness, Michelle teaches women the art of Yoni Breathing & Yoni Weight Lifting through the use of sacred Yoni eggs. These ancient tools are a way for women to meditate, tone the pelvic floor, invigorate the body, and maintain womb health. “Yoni” is the sanskrit term for “sacred space” or “womb.”
