This class is taught by:

Michelle Finch

Michelle Finch believes in the power of a practice rooted deeply in the fundamentals & mindfulness. She genuinely embraces the notion that an open heart & mind coupled with the alignment of body & breath can be profoundly healing to the mind, body & spirit of every yoga practitioner. Whether attending her specialty Yin yoga classes or the balancing Yang (Slow Flow), you will find her classes to be powerful & moving for the entirety of your being. Michelle’s light hearted, yet nurturing approach to teaching is guaranteed to elevate your spirit and place a lasting smile on your face. Michelle was first introduced to the practice of yoga in 2003 and although it took eight years for these teachings to truly sink in for her, looking back she can see this foundation, laid in her early 20’s, provided the stepping off point for her to realize the multitude of benefits yoga offers, both on & off the mat. Having personally felt its healing qualities, the rounded practice of yoga has aided Michelle in turning toward a healthier lifestyle, relieving her dis-ease of anxiety & depression, as well as overcoming a personal battle with addiction. After nearly 10 years in corporate human resources, she found herself being called away from the business world & in 2012 made the decision to re-dedicate her life to the path of yoga & has not looked back. Although Michelle is an ERYT-200 RYT-500 certified teacher, she believes that one should always seek further wisdom from the teachers that have come before her. Therefore, following the path of continued learning, she is humbled to be currently studying with the Insight Yoga Institute under the loving guidance of Sarah & Ty Powers. On top of her yogic studies, she is also currently enrolled in the highly acclaimed Transformative Leadership MA program with the prestigious California Institute of Integral Studies. When not teaching, Michelle spends her time outdoors (cycling, hiking, kayaking, etc.), traveling, enjoying time with her friends/family & sharing the beautiful journey of life with her husband, DJ.
Explore your body using the rejuvenating techniques of myofascial release (MFR) in combination with active & passive forms of yoga as well as various other forms of movement that will rebalance & reenergize your body while relieving stress. Allow gravity to take hold & use the assistance of your own weight to reach deep into your body & release tension, tightness & pain. MFR is a great way to target specific body parts where pain is stored, even in inflexible bodies. Compliment your yoga practice through this unique way to move energy and release fascia.

This workshop is designed for yogis & yoga teachers who want to learn more about using various everyday tools to decrease muscle soreness & combat the wear & tear on the body of the modern lifestyle. Learn techniques to bring this practice into your everyday activities, empowering you to take control of your own health & comfort in life.

All students who attend will receive a FREE myofascial release toolkit which includes two large balls, two small balls & one scraper as well as a handy bag so you can take them anywhere you go!
