Jewels’ focus is alignment within the self. She’s been teaching yoga in the DMV full-time for almost nine years. After completing her initial 200-hour, Level 2, and Trauma Informed trainings, she earned her in-depth 300-hour certificate based in Sankhya philosophy. Jewels has also studied and is trained in the Functional Range System of Movement, a joint training system. She's a certified FRCms and group class instructor. In class, she incorporates her knowledge of yoga with respect and acknowledgment of the roots, history, and philosophies, joint mobility work (joint specific range of motion focus and strength training), and breath-work in order to bring about a holistic experience of health and well-being. Above all else, Jewels’ hope is to facilitate a safe, accepting, and enjoyable environment where all are welcome and reminded not to take it too seriously.

Michelle came to yoga as a way to reintroduce exercise back into her life after suffering a head concussion in early 2013. Simple, everyday movements like moving her head side to side became such a challenge. With the help of yoga and physical therapy, Michelle was able to get her strength and most importantly, equilibrium back into her life. What she didn’t expect to find was the connection of breath with the body, the focus, and stillness of the mind even off the yoga mat. And she’s been hooked ever since!
Michelle is registered through Yoga Alliance and is a RYT-200 Power Flow instructor. She also holds an additional 100-hour certification in Rocket Yoga through Progressive Ashtanga PR, as well as a 50-hour Yin training through Yael Flusberg. You can expect Michelle to incorporate challenging poses into her fun, vinyasa flows while still honoring the body.
Off mat, she enjoys traveling the world with her husband, hiking with their adorable pups, and fishing at local ponds.
