A forever student, Michelle has been practicing yoga since 1996, and teaching since 2006. She completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training at ISHTA Yoga in New York City.

Michelle and her family love to surf, ride bikes and play with their golden retriever Lyla.
"I don't know if I call myself a teacher. I would simply like to call myself a student of life, for my entire life. And if I am successful in being ready to learn in every moment, then maybe I can share those experiences and someone might feel a spark through the sharing. It is not in my capacity to be a teacher, it is only in my capacity to be a student." - Indu Arora
