I love Michele's Ashtanga style Power yoga classes!

I have suffered from lower back pain and morning stiffness for many years. I had tried yoga on and off at different studios but just under 2 years ago I walked into the Yoga Spot and never looked back! I started with Michele's Ashtanga style Power yoga classes and love them. As my practice has grown I have attended other classes, there is so much choice. Michele is so supportive and has given me encouragement, strength and confidence which I can take off the mat and into daily life. And the back pain ­- it's gone!

Michele is one of the most dedicated teachers...

Back in 2011 Michele Ross bought the Yoga Spot. I remember my first Power Yoga class with Michele. I arrived with a bit of apprehension, my previous teacher Gill McClean was a hard act to follow. What was I worried about, Michele was great. There's no problem too challenging for Michele, like traveling down a fog bound road in the middle of the night to pick up Scott Johnson who's flight had been diverted to Edinburgh. Arriving back in Aberdeen in the early hours, grabbing a couple hours sleep then opening up the Yoga Spot for the 6am Mysore class!!

Michele is one of the most dedicated teachers I have had the privilege to be taught by. A big thank you for the last 7 years of fantastic yoga classes and workshops and can't wait to continue my practice with Michele at the new Yoga Spot.

A beautiful yoga community and studio...

Michele has created a beautiful yoga community and studio in Aberdeen where everyone is welcome. It doesn’t matter if you are new to yoga or a long term practitioner there is a class and a teacher for you at the Yoga Spot. Michele is passionate about yoga and supporting each practitioner on their yoga path no matter where they start and despite what many people think no matter how inflexible they might be.

The Yoga Spot hosts some fantastic visiting teachers each year, all of whom complement the classes and workshops run throughout the year.

Michele showed infinite patience...

I first went to the Yoga Spot around 2011 following recommendations from a friend. I was hoping to increase mobility and strength and to find a way of dealing with the stress of everyday life and work. Michele showed infinite patience as I struggled to learn the postures in an Ashtanga Mysore class. Michele is both firm and nurturing in her approach. She has an excellent sense of humour and just when I think I have reached my limit she helps me to get that little bit further. At first I thought I would be embarrassed as I was so much older than the others but Michele made sure that I never felt that I was lagging behind the other students.

As a result of a regular yoga practice I now find that my flexibility, posture and focus has increased. In addition the Yoga Spot has given me friendship and a sense of wellbeing that I did not have before I started. Thank you Michele for making the Yoga Spot such an amazing place to practice.
