Michelle Nayeli Bouvier

Location: San Francisco & beyond! Level: E-RYT 500
Dance has been the thread of connection throughout Michelle Nayeli's life.  A straight-A student all the way through her degree in Ecology at UCSD, Michelle has devoted her life to the study of life & movement. A yogini of 25 years, a full-time yoga teacher since 2000, Michelle believes that our personal sadhana can take on many forms- for her it is often inside the hoop, or as a humble student-teacher and conduit of Prana Vinyasa Flow. 

Michelle (or Nayeli, your choice!) has been blessed to study in-depth with many master teachers, including: 7 years daily Ashtanga Vinyasa with Tim Miller, 200 E-RYT with Tias Little, 800hrs+ with John Friend, 6 month Tantric Philosophy & Practice Immersion with Christopher 'Hareesh' Wallis, everything possible with Christopher Tompkins, and numerous accomplished teachers in dance. She completed her E-RYT 500 with Shiva Rea, and is grateful to assist Shiva in trainings, as well as through the transmission of Prana VinyasaTM and all that is embraced by Living Yoga... beyond the asana.

Currently Michelle is focused on offering immersive trainings and her San Francisco-based private practice. Michelle specializes in therapeutic applications, biomechanics, psychosomatics, and unravelling habitual patterns of both body and mind through the combination of breath+movement+awareness when working one-on-one. Immersion experiences draw from the teachings of Classical Tantra, Ayurveda, Prana VinyasaTM, and the power of dance to connect us within, with each other, and with the flow of the phases of life. She is inspired to share a creative, intelligent palette of pathways into embodied awareness and spirit, as well as share in the understanding of the power of rhythm - particularly through the sacred circle, the tool/toy of the Hoop.

Michelle is also an Advanced Certified AcroYoga teacher, 8-year teacher of Hoopdance, creator of Vinyasa of the Hoop, and is grateful to share these playful practices at gatherings around the world.
