Michelle Downing DPT, RYT
Michelle took her first yoga class at the age of 16 in a hospital in
Bennington VT. When moving to Vermont in 2003, her passion for yoga
lead to an intensive study of philosophy and detailed alignment
principles with yoga instructors Todd Norian and John Friend,
culminating with a 300-hour teacher training in 2006. An ever
increasing curiosity about the human body and desire to use yoga to
heal injury lead her to enter the University of Vermont’s Doctorate of
Physical Therapy program in 2009.
Michelle’s alignment and therapeutic classes facilitate developing
flexibility, strength and stability while honoring the uniqueness of
every body. There is a focus on mindfulness and non-judgemental
embodiment to develop a healthy and strong mind body connection.
