MICHELLE BARTON

My yoga journey began when I needed it the most.  Yoga was brought to me through the volunteers from Living Yoga.  At that time, I was not even aware of the heavy burden of grief that I had not processed in the midst of tragedy. It was only after several years of practice, through breath-work, meditation and movement that I was able to recognize the impact that post-traumatic stress and grief had made.

 

I am very passionate about teaching yoga and I feel it is important  and needed in the modern world of daily trauma. Yoga facilitated my healing, growth and re-gained recognition of self-worth, and it is my desire to give that back to others.

 

I have been a volunteer for Living Yoga for 9 years, and was a student of living yoga for 7 years. I am skilled in Trauma-informed Yoga and am educated in the Postural Restoration Institute of Physical Therapy’s Yoga therapy model. My most valuable training has come from the 8 years I have been teaching.

 

I know that community and fun are extremely therapeutic.  I will encourage you to breathe deeper, relax and smile. It is my sincere desire to make movement enjoyable and to offer the healing properties of yoga that have helped me so much in my own life.
