Michelle’s main teacher is the recently deceased silent monk Sri Baba Hari Dass of the Mount Madonna Center in Santa Cruz, California.  His practice is based in Ashtanga Yoga of Pantanjali, The 8-Limbed Path of Yoga, that “includes guidelines for a virtuous life, spiritual practices for calming the mind, and the yogic postures associated with Ashtanga Yoga in the West.” (Everyday Peace, Letters for Life intro.) He gave Michelle her spiritual name “Parmita” – Limitless.

“Work honestly, meditate every day, meet people without fear, and play.” -Babaji

Michelle has done extensive work in the Healing Arts & continue to evolve as a healer.  She has developed Yoga Teacher Trainings, lead international retreats, workshops, and yoga classes.
