Michelle Kennedy has been teaching yoga since 2003. She earned 200-hour Yoga Alliance Certification in a traditional Ashram through Yoga Teacher Training Institute while she was pregnant with her first child, giving her a unique prenatal yoga perspective. After the birth of her daughter, she learned how to adapt poses for the post-natal and post-surgical mom through her own work and training with other experts in the field. Though pre- and post-natal are areas Michelle specializes in, she is skilled at instructing diverse individuals in group and private settings, from very young children to seniors, of all stages and physical abilities.
