Private Yoga Class ($45/75 minutes)

COVID19 UPDATE: I am accepting clients for online, as well as outdoor & indoor in-person classes at your home or in a location of your choosing.

  • Learn correct alignment and postures to avoid injury and get the most out of your practice.
  • Learn how to incorporate different props to relax in poses, letting go of any strain or tension put on the muscles.
  • Learn proper breathing in each poses and breathing techniques for meditation (pranayama)
  • Learn which poses are best for you (everyone’s body is different!)

A one-on-one private session is a great for beginners, seasoned yogis and anyone else in between. A private session allows your instructor to focus on just you and help you discover which poses are best for you and your specific needs.

In a 75 minute private class we will begin with a grounding meditation, work on pranayama (breathing techniques), followed by a warm up leading to the peak of your practice, a cool down and ending with savasana.

Throughout your lesson I will provide you with hands on, as well as verbal adjustments, to help you get deeper into each pose to really receive all of the benefits from your practice and avoid any injury. We will also focus on the breathing in each asana (pose), as this is the center of a yoga practice. This one-on-one attention is not usually possible in a regular yoga class and will help you begin to see day to day changes in your practice and even your lifestyle!

If you have never done yoga before, this is a great option for you to learn proper alignment and techniques in each pose from the beginning! Maybe you have been wanting to try it out but are feeling a little nervous or overwhelmed to attend a class because you don’t think you are “flexible enough,” “strong enough” or maybe you just feel a little intimidated being in a larger group of people. This is normal and a private session can help get rid of these feelings!

Semi-Private Yoga Session ($25 pp/75 minutes)

A semi-private yoga session has all of the same benefits of a private session but allows you to invite family or friends to join in and receive all the amazing benefits of a yoga practice with you! This is a great option if you are feeling hesitant to venture into the world of yoga alone. It is also a great alternative to a ladies/mens night out. (You might even want to combine this option with a cooking class and have a delicious meal to follow your session! Inquire here.)

I bought the herbal divine tokes all the way from the UK and I can’t even explain how much I love this amazing product! I love love love my little crystal gift I got with it! It’s as if Michaela just tapped into my head and knew exactly what I wanted and needed to make this even more amazing! This herbal smoke blend really is out of this world, it smells and tastes amazing! Sends me straight to sleep at night and doesn’t leave a bad taste like other herbal smokes! I can’t recommend this business enough, it really brings the magic with it and I love it so so much!”

My journey with Michaela was everything I hoped for and more! I was interested in eating more whole foods, establishing routines for myself where I could realign at the beginning and end of each day, and to generally to gain more awareness of my body and its needs; inside and out. I am typically awful at committing to schedules, changes, plans, etc. so I knew this was going to be a challenge. Michaela was nothing short of understanding, patient, and encouraging as she helped me through some of my obstacles. The meetings and online yoga sessions really held me accountable for sticking to my choice to evolve my lifestyle as well. I can very honestly say that my body awareness and health has never felt better! ”

Maddie Lutian, 3 Week Coaching Package

An absolutely amazing teacher, coach and human being. The three week nutritional coaching has been a huge life saver and positive life change for me. Never did I feel judged or discouraged, the patience, kindness and knowledge is a true blessing to all. The online yoga classes are my favorite! The perfect way to start or end a day, wonderful for all! A truly safe spot in a hectic world and time. I am blessed to have met you and I am honored for all of your help on my yoga journey, that I have you to thank for. Blessings and love”

Francesca Carlton, 3 Week Coaching Package & Yoga Student

Michaela's teaching style really connects to guiding you through each pose by making verbal adjustments through the online yoga class. It's as if you're standing in the same room rather than watching through the phone or laptop. Being able to get out of my head and into my body during this time has really benefited my stress and energy levels and Michaela is a great guide who really brings you deeply into the experience.”

Keegan Hammer

Attending public yoga classes has always been hit or miss for me. With Michaela I get the full attention of an instructor who's taken the time to detail a practice tailored to my current ability. I cannot emphasize enough how different private instruction is from a traditional public class. I have the freedom to take things at my own pace, someone walks me through the nuance of the movements, and I have the comfort of practicing in own home. I highly recommend exploring this service for anyone who has an interest in holistic health, and especially for someone who is unsure of where or how to begin.”

Tyler Korponai

I had the most transformative experience in my class with Michaela. I’ve been lightly learning about yoga for years, I’ve attended classes for various flows and have flowed under several teachers who all did great jobs in teaching, but in just my first class with Michaela I learned subtle movements in what seemed to be positions I thought I’d gotten down that completely transformed how I see the practice. She breaks down the most intricate little details of each position, making it the most balanced and most transformative way to flow for every leveled yogi.”

Rane Slaoui

I had my first at home private yoga instruction by Michaela yesterday and loved it. She was very knowledge on yoga practice, a great teacher, and relaxing to be around. I find the individualized approach to be extremely beneficial as she was able to meet my exact needs, which do not always happen in a large group setting. I love that Michaela traveled to my home- it was super easy and made it more comfortable for me, as I do not always love the studio environment. I highly recommend working with Michaela and looking forward to having her return!”

Stephanie Bellofiore

I had a semi private yoga session with Michaela and left feeling more relaxed and present than any other yoga practice I've had. The one on one attention is truly transformative. She does more than simply lead you through the movements; she tailors the lesson to your personal abilities, pushing you just far enough to grow your skills, and educates you on the history and philosophy of yoga along the way. Whether you're trying yoga for the first time or are well into your journey, I highly recommend Michaela.”

Michaela did an amazing job! All of her recipes were great! She has an abundance of knowledge on vitamins and their benefits. I learned so much from her workshop. ”

Ann Slaoui, Healing Foods For Depression Workshop

Michaela is very knowledgable of plant-based eating and the nutrients found in foods. She accurately explains vitamins and their benefits to the human body. I learned that many vitamins have a direct correlation with brain functionality.”
