Yogablossom, developed by Mikelle Terson, is a system of one-to one yoga instruction designed to help you meet your individual needs and potentials so that you can "blossom" into your fully realized self.
Her Philosophy about yoga
"Without the love, there is no yoga." "A posture is like a constellation. Your find all your coordinates. Your feet go here, your thigh rotates in here, your shoulder blades move here, and once you have all your individual stars in line....... you let yourself shine." "Why not learn through Joy?"
About Yoga Blossom Boutique
Mikelle's love of art has led her to create her jewelry line and her background in science (she had to do alot of studying) has lent itself to develop products and methods to help teachers and students to learn aspects of yoga more easily and hopefully to have a little fun in the process. Just as yoga is a dynamic and always growing and evolving science with strong and ancient roots, YogaBlossom's intention is to continue to unfold it's petals to better serve the yoga community.
Mikelle began teaching in 1985.
She has taught at the Equinox, Chelsea Piers and Reebok clubs in NY. She assisted Bikram Choudhury in his first visit to Kripalu and has taught the residents there. For many years, she has worked with the Ross School, a progressive private school in East Hampton, and has had the opportunity to develop a morning wellness program of yoga with fellow teacher Thomas Michael Amelio. They taught 400 students and teachers together, ages 9 thru 60 at once. It was quite a rich experience! In 1995, she began offering Yoga Retreats in St. Barts. She travels extensively with her private clients throughout the world.
In her private work
students had the opportunity to move deeply into their growth process and Mikelle realized in would be a great aid to them if she could guide them on the psychological realm as well as the spiritual. She then studied Gestalt Therapy and Rogerian Therapy. After finishing her training in Advanced Gestalt Therapy, she co-taught Russian immigrants to use some of the principals of Gestalt Therapy in their various fields. The program was taught in English with a Russian translator, and Mikelle says it was such a beautiful experience of how truth, soul, and community exist beyond language and words.
Mikelle is a graduate of Cornell University
with a degree in Biology. She was also a competitive gymnast for the University of Florida. It was in Florida, where she meet her first teacher, Richard Michael Odom and her love of yoga began. She has studied with many teachers throughout the years, some of whom include Bikram, Swami Bua, Oonasia, Rod Stryker, John Friend, Ross Rayburn, and Panditji Rajmani Tiguinait of the Himalayan Institute.
Living in New York City
Mikelle has learned to combine both real world experiences with the ancient practice of healthy living. "Living in the world, yet above" as the masters would say, she helps people help themselves, and find the truth within. Her understanding and intuitive nature allows her to tailor the right practice to meet her student's individual needs.
We all have this beautiful unique self that is our own expression of the Divine Light.
I have found that yoga polishes the stone, chipping away fear, doubt, illusion, bad habits, so we can shine as the jewels that we truly are. Yoga has been such a gift to me in my life. It is an honor and a joy to be able to share it with others.
Mikelle's artistic talent
(she is a painter, poet and published writer), brings a delightful and spontaneous creativity to her work. Her love of color and beauty eventually evolved into making jewelry. She feels that gems are a celebration of the beauty and mystery contained in the earth, and when worn, not only are we enhanced by the energetic properties of the stones but they help us to celebrate and twinkle as our beautiful selves.
What others have to say about Mikelle
Ms. Marty Dwyer, Attorney
I have been studying with Mikelle for a year and a half. The sessions have been wonderful, non-stressful yet challenging. My body is stronger, more stretched, relaxed and my ability to concentrate has greatly improved. Yoga gives me time for myself, a deeper self. Passing this experience on to people I care for has been a great source of pleasure.
