Michele’s JOGA Story

I have been a competitive athlete my entire life, and I remember as a child, dreaming of how I would create my perfect job, which would encompass my love of sport and my passion for helping others.  Swimming, field hockey, equestrian were my sports that I pursued into college, and then after graduating continuing in my love of Dressage, and then becoming a professional cross country mountain bike racer and Cat 1 road cyclist. I was always interested in how the human body worked and using functional body movements to make me a better athlete.  If my swim coach said I needed to get stronger, my dad had me carry two water buckets at the barn at a time.  Cross-training was and is key to a stronger body and mind.  I graduated with a degree in Kinesiology and started my own Personal training business a few years after that and I have always sought out the top people in the field to study under and pursue my education.  I was hooked on JOGA during my first JOGA session, and getting certified has changed everything for me, my clients and my business.  I am also a 200 RYT and have practiced yoga for many years.  In spite of my knowledge,  I was always having an issue, and I attribute it to several things, being competitive, being in a hot room and pushing my tight muscles too far because I loved the sweat, loved the exertions, and yet I tolerated the pains and injuries because I loved the mindfulness behind yoga.  With JOGA, I was forced to slow down, to be present and concentrate on the movements, this program brings it all together; physically, creating mobility around stability, developing better proprioception, mentally, staying present and calm in demanding situations, recovering faster because of the awareness of the breath, the brain, the body.  And fast forward to now as a recreational athlete, my awareness in both the saddle of horses and cycling, I am a far better and confident athlete than I ever have been.I have been a competitive athlete my entire life, and I remember as a child, dreaming of how I would create my perfect job, which would encompass my love of sport and my passion for helping others.  Swimming, field hockey, equestrian were my sports that I pursued into college, and then after graduating continuing in my love of Dressage, and then becoming a professional cross country mountain bike racer and Cat 1 road cyclist.
