Michelle Thielen, R-YFT, R-CYAMT
Michelle began studying and practicing yoga in the late 80’s while professionally dancing in Portland, Oregon where she was born and raised. Eventually the love of yoga and it’s numerous benefits led her into instructing and sharing the wonderful gift of yoga with others, but it was her passion for Christ that led her to YogaFaith.
She has been registered with the American Council of Exercise since 2009, a Master Trainer with the Christian Yoga Association and has been teaching somatic movement through dance and yoga for over 20 years. As an international speaker and author of the widely popular Christian Yoga book, Stretching Your Faith, Michelle has trained over 2000 students in becoming highly skilled yoga trainers, living a life on purpose and in confidence.
I look forward to meeting you at training where we are going to dive so deep into Christ and what He has for you here on earth that you will wish you had come sooner! God has something HUGE awaiting you in Pennsylvania and I can’t wait to see what it is!
