20+ hours of pelvic floor teacher training with Leslie Howard

I have practiced yoga for many years and have been teaching various styles of yoga for one year. I specialize in yoga for beginners and pelvic floor yoga (great for new moms, people experiencing incontinence, pelvic floor pain, pain during intercourse). I also teach a yoga inspired class called Yoga Groove, which incorporates yoga with dance, plyometrics, and strength training.

    Every class session is different, and every class session is challenging without being overwhelming. She creates a judgement-free space where every student is encouraged to improve while also accepting where they are on that day, in that moment.

    I like that she gives clear instruction to ensure you are doing the poses correctly. She is a wonderful teacher.

    My husband and I did buti yoga with Michelle and it was great! My husband was new to yoga and buti but Michelle made it easy for him to follow along and it was a great workout. We were sweating!


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

 Typically I like to know if a student has any prior yoga experience and what his or her expectations are.  I also like to know what is his/her level of physical activity, as well as if the student has any injuries, restrictions, or is dealing with past or current trauma that might affect his/her practice. After a general intake, I start working with the student at his or her level practicing asana and teaching the eight limbs of yoga. I create lessons based on the student’s needs and goals tailored to his/her level.

How did you get started teaching?

I practiced yoga at home for many years before having my children. I fell out of practice due to two rough pregnancies and caring for my young children. Feeling the need to care a little for myself too, I obtained my yoga teacher certification and fell back in love with my passion.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with a variety of students from beginners to experienced yogis.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for a certified teacher you feel you can connect with and feel comfortable with.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

*what are your goals?

*how much time can you realistically commit to your practice?
