Michele Van Valey

Yoga Instructor

Michele started practicing yoga seriously after two emergency surgeries in her late twenties. With ten pins and a titanium plate installed in her left ankle, the prognosis was arthritis and limited range of motion. She attended her first yoga training to develop a deeper understanding of the practice while working to prevent a lifetime of joint pain. Her first teacher, Beth Beigler, combined Iyengar inspired asana with a Body Mind Centering approach. Deeper than that, Beth taught subtle anatomy, Hindu mythology and Ayurveda. This colourful, textured adventure started to unfold beneath the layers of the asana.
