“From the moment you walk into the Yoga Studio, Michele greets you with a warm smile and an open heart. She is the kind of Yoga Teacher who immediately draws you in. Michele has spent many years studying Yoga, and this shows in her understanding of anatomy, and the ease with which she teaches.” – Kate Cordell, Student
Is thinking about the upcoming holidays getting you stressed out already?
Don’t let the holidays become something you dread. Take steps to prevent the stress and anxiety that can descend at this time of year. Join Michele Benton, certified yoga instructor for a Yin Yoga workshop that focuses on self-care. Learn specific poses and breathing techniques that aid in relaxation to lighten your mood and help you sleep well. Yin Yoga is a slower, specific type of Yoga meant for release, recovery, prevention and healing. Michele will bring a light and fun approach to the workshop. She will offer instruction in Pranayama (basic breathing techniques) and share her knowledge of anatomy, helping participants target the connective tissue around the hips and spine. Learn about connective tissue and how to access those areas to enjoy the full benefit of the poses that release tension and relax sore and sensitive muscles.

Michele Benton began practicing yoga in 2007, focusing mainly on the Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow styles. In the summer of 2010, she met the late Sarasvati Devi through her friend and teacher Christine Northcote. Having spent a year considering the next step on her path, specifically whether to become a yoga teacher herself, Michele took this fateful meeting as a sign. She graduated from the Prana Vinyasa Radiant Transitions program in October 2011 at the Full Circle Yoga Studio in Winter Park, Florida. In 2018 she earned a 500 RYT Certification through the Yoga Alliance by completing a 615-hour teacher training certification with Mylinda Morales at Yoga University of Florida in Altamonte Springs, where she teaches Yin Yoga and Warm Alignment Yoga. Her yoga teaching style has a strong emphasis on anatomy and alignment, which along with her past training enables Michele to provide a safe and therapeutic practice no matter the student’s level of experience. omsunshine.com
