“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
Join Michele Benton, certified yoga instructor, and Soundwalk facilitator, Lady Eve for a unique yin yoga workshop with live music for balancing the energy centers of the body. Yin Yoga is a practice that works the connective tissues of the body for greater flexibility, injury prevention and calming the mind. All poses are seated or reclined with the use of props such as yoga blocks and blankets that are held for several minutes, safely and therapeutically stretching, stimulating and strengthening. This in-depth workshop will focus on chakra alignment, using live musical accompaniment and focused sound frequencies to open these energy points. Experience the healing power of proper spinal alignment that connects our energetic body, from the base of the spine extending to the crown of the head. No yoga experience needed!
$35 / ACA members $25. Limited to 15 participants. Supply list to follow. Secure your spot now!

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
