Michele is not typically a morning person.
She loves language; letters, words, poetry. She sees yoga as a language of sorts; a form of self-expression, a means for self-inquiry, a practice of deep connection.
Michele is most at home when surrounded by rocks, moss and trees. In the woods, as on the yoga mat, it just feels easier to breathe.
More than one person has called Michele a starburst. People have described her as electric, as beautiful, hilarious, magic (and at times she’s been described as a pain in the #$$ too!)
It is true that sometimes she takes things too seriously. Mostly though, she is playful and light hearted. Michele likes to laugh. A lot. And she does laugh - a lot. Other people who like to laugh find themselves laughing with her - a lot. Which makes her heart happy.
Michele has a very active imagination (as most life-long children do,) and she’s always been good at asking questions...Currently, she is interested in what the feeling of moonlight might taste like (does lemonade taste like a square feels?) How would one make indoor snow fall at the end of a Sekoia class (think magic snowflakes a la Edward Scissorhands)? What is the perfect soundtrack for the color green (must it include the sound of bullfrogs?) How long will it take for her to be completely fluent in Ohio birdsong? Who do you have to know to be reincarnated as a firefly….? (Rest assured, this is an abridged list of her musings.)
It is her deepest heart’s calling and most sincere life goal to love people. A lot.
A lot - a lot.
And to let people love her too.
