Born and raised in Hamilton, Canada, Michelle Baldin is a Yoga and Meditation Teacher. After a life changing situation, Michelle believes yoga foundits way to her, and saved her. She completed her 200 hour Therapeutic Yoga Training (Hatha) under the gentle guidance of Heather Greaves and additional 100 hours of specialized meditation training with Jivasu.
In addition to her yoga training, Michelle has completed mindfulness courses, including a 10 day silent Vipassana retreat, lead by S.N. Goenka.
In 2015, Michelle travelled to India with a group led by Jivasu and completed a 100 hour training in yoga asanas, philosophy, and meditation. Jivasu also introduced her to the teachings of Naturality, which ties into Michelle’s yoga style and her teachings in her mindfulness classes.
Another teacher who helped her in learning alignment in her Yoga practice was Parveen Nair, an accomplished Iyengar yoga teacher in Rishikesh, India.
On a personal level, Michelle enjoys her mindful moments as a full time educator, raising three beautiful children, strength training, and helping people in and around Hamilton with yoga movements and mindfulness practices. When she does have extra time, she mindfully draws and dances through her asanas.
