The ancient eastern tradition of Yoga has long understood the vital connections between the mind, brain and body. Many neuroscientists in the west are now recognising and realising the benefits of Yoga (and other mind-body therapies) in regulating autonomic, neuroendocrine, emotional and behavioural activation through its integration of top-down (brain to body) and bottom-up (body to brain) processes.  Michelle believes that that the therapeutic integration of various Yoga practices can be utilised to support a wide range of difficulties and support children and young people to heal.

Michelle is passionate about enhancing her knowledge and understanding of neuroscience, in particular the development and organisation of the brain and nervous system. She is currently undertaking training in the Neurosequential Model in Education (NME). As well as informing her work as a Yoga therapist, especially when working with children and young people, Michelle is committed to working with teachers and other school staff on embedding the core principles of Neurodevelopment through the delivery of NME training in schools.

As a member of The Society of Yoga Practitioners (www.tsyp.yoga), Michelle’s personal and professional practice follow the tradition and teachings of Professor T Krishnamacharya and his son TKV Desikachar (www.kym.org). She maintains a daily practice and study with senior teachers in the tradition both in the UK and in India.

Michelle holds a Post Graduate Certificate in Education, a Post Graduate Diploma in Learning and Development and is a fully qualified Yoga teacher and therapist recognised and registered with the Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council (www.yogafortoday.yoga).
