michelle latorre

michelle latorreMichelle took her first yoga class in 2004 when she worked for a fitness club in San Francisco. This was merely the beginning of a journey that continues to transform her life today. She discovered that yoga provided an honest sense of peace and self-truth, that couldn’t be found anywhere else. She made bold changes in her career and life that the light of yoga inspired. Moving to Hawaii in 2013, Michelle knew her practice would profoundly deepen. From teaching indoors to outdoors in the park, or on the water with SUP yoga, she found her calling helping others to experience all that yoga has to offer. Michelle received her advanced 500-hr RYT certification in Yoga Therapy on the Big Island of Hawaii. She brings self-healing knowledge, creativity and compassion to her classes in order to balance the body, mind, and spirit as a whole.
