Michelle Berlin began her path of yoga many years ago which evolved into teaching in 2007. After a car accident created multiple spinal injuries and her doctors told her the only option was major surgery, Michelle began looking for alternative treatments. She decided to take the lead in her own healing and began studying and practicing Iyengar Yoga. She spent a year traveling and studying in India, Bali, Thailand, and Nepal. While in India, she studied at the Iyengar Himalayan Center. Her thirst for knowledge in the healing arts lead her to Nepal where she had the opportunity to study sound healing with Tibetan Monks in the Himalayas. While there, she did some apprentice work with the sound shaman of a small village along the Annapurna circuit.
