About Your host - Many Moons Yoga

Hi I am Michelle. Originally from South Africa I have had a passion and dedicated practice in yogic forms since my early teens.

I believe in the power of movement as medicine. I believe in the wisdom of nature and the healing truth present in the natural world. I believe that through our connection to our bodies and natural environment, deep healing and passion can emerge, and it is with this approach that I seek to share my love with the world. 

My teaching and practice is inspired at the intersection where movement, music, nature and discernment meet. Sometimes it is more movement than discernment, sometimes it is more music than movement, sometimes nature wisdom prevails however the common thread is a deep love and interest in how our bodies can be used as a vessel in our environment to access and experience our inner truth.
