Michele - Yoga teacher at The Yoga Spot AberdeenMichele took over the Yoga Spot in April 2011 and has been running the business as well as teaching yoga full time since then.  Prior to becoming a full time yoga teacher, Michele worked in the corporate world of the oil & gas industry in Aberdeen, latterly as an Events Manager for a not-for-profit small subsea and underwater related company.

General fitness and running had been a part of Michele’s life since a teenager.  Only through back injury, and lots of encouragement from others, did she start to attend yoga classes.  Miraculously yoga helped where various types of therapies hadn’t!

Although coming to yoga from a fitness point of view, Michele soon realised that there was so much more to yoga than the physical.  Intrigued and enthused to learn as much as possible, all other forms of exercise as well as her beloved running started to fall by the wayside.  Attending more yoga classes and even starting a home yoga practice, she soon signed up for a Yoga Teacher Training.  Of course at this point, only to learn more about yoga, little did she know she’d soon be the owner of a yoga studio!

Michele’s own physical yoga practice is Ashtanga Vinyasa and she has been extremely lucky to study with some of the best teachers in the World.  Through encouragement from her first yoga teacher, Gill McLean, Michele met David Keil (www.yoganatomy.com) who she now studies with every year.  Through David, she met and has studied with John Scott (www.johnscottyoga.com) several times and hopes to do so more in the future.  Also through David, Michele met and studies with Gretchen Suarez (www.gretchensuarez.com). As well as a yoga teacher Gretchen is also a licensed Psychotherapist.

For the first time in March 2014 Michele travelled to Mysore in India for one month to study with Sharath Jois at KPJAYI (www.kpjayi.org), the home of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga.  As well as studying with these highly esteemed teachers, Michele also attends regular workshops throughout the year to work on her own physical as well as spiritual practice to then share with her students.

As you will see from the Class Timetable Michele teaches several classes at the Yoga Spot throughout the week.  However she also teaches regular one-to-one private classes as well as private group classes.  If you’re interested in finding out more about private classes please contact her on info@theyogaspot.co.uk or telephone 07745 929660.
