Michele Nettesheim, RYT
Michele Nettesheim is a Registered Yoga Teacher who received her certification through the North Carolina School of Yoga and has been teaching “grown-up” yoga since 2003. She loves leading "Gentle Yoga" classes where students are encouraged to let go of the inclination to Go Go Go, Push Harder, Do More and relax into long, luxurious, stretch-y poses. Attention is focused on what each pose feels like in our own lovely bodies rather than on trying to get our pose to look like someone else's.
After the birth of her daughter Ava in 2008, Michele became interested in Kids Yoga. She trained with Marsha Wenig of YogaKids and attained her certification through Rainbow Kids Yoga. She has been teaching Kids Yoga since 2009 and feels blessed to experience the joy and special energy that these young yogis bring to their practice!
Given the many stressors and unique challenges faced by today's adolescents, Michele is also interested in providing teens with strategies for relaxation and coping. In 2013 she completed Kripalu Yoga in the Schools training and began providing classes for teenagers in their high schools. She again feels blessed to witness the sense of fun and open-heartedness these students bring to the class each week.
