Michelle Mazur - Yoga Teacher Training
After decades spent as a ballet dancer, Michelle Mazur could feel every performance echoing through her body in the form of throbbing pain in her spine, lower back, and hips. A series of autoimmune diseases worsened the suffering, and she began to grow ill. Then Michelle discovered the therapeutic properties of yoga. Twelve years later, she is a Yoga Alliance-certified E-500-level instructor who shares its philosophy and practice with others. Michelle's private yoga therapies, Ayurveda workshops, vinyasa flow, Iyengar alignment sessions, and Yoga Sutra studies take place in a yurt that serves as a getaway from the bustle of downtown Los Angeles. Surrounded by trees, the yurt’s skylight lets sunlight or starlight peak through the wavering branches overhead.
