Michela is a faculty member of The Yoga Institute. She teaches components of the Level 1 Heart of Yoga Teacher Training programme and graduate workshops, and is a mentor for Teacher Training and Yoga Therapy students.
Michela started practicing yoga while she was studying International Relations and Diplomatic Science at university. When Michela moved to Australia, she left her career in order to pursue her passion for yoga.
After becoming a yoga teacher and gaining her first few years of teaching experience, she completed her Advanced Diploma in Yoga Teaching in the Krishnamacharya tradition at The Yoga Institute.
Michela has also undertaken Yoga Therapy training, has studied Vedic Chanting and the Yoga Sutra with Pamela Tyson, and continues to be mentored by Michael de Manincor.
Michela has a particular interest in the tools of yoga and their therapeutic application. The focus of her work is therefore to design practices that nourish the specific needs of each student and to help them develop their own practice.
