Certifications & Classes

The professional trainings being offered by Evolution Training are the result of Michelle's search and study to find a practice that heals the body instead of hurting it, while balancing the mind and emotional body.  
The trainings will educate participants in a deep immersion into yoga and personal health, while also training them to be an excellent teacher with the ability to work with people of all ages and all levels of fitness, in class and private settings. 
Transformational Yoga Teacher Trainings and Orthopedic Yoga Therapy Certifications

These programs are the result of 20 years of experience as a yoga therapist and over 40 times directing therapeutic yoga teacher trainings, 20 years of seeing and experiencing so many yoga injuries and so many imbalances being driven deeper into students’ structures through uneducated asana. It emerged out of my search to release myself from the constant pain I was told I would have to live with at 29 years old and my intense study of human anatomy with my amazing teacher Tom Myers of “Anatomy Trains” fame. It works on three synergistic levels: educated movement, informed touch and neurological re-connection.

Bodywork & Structural Integration

"Following my stem cell transplant and chemotherapy treatment, I was left with a pain in my chest that was residual from my tumors there. My doctor said that it was the “new me” and something I would get used to. I heard about Michelle’s transformational bodywork, and after one session my pain is 100% gone. I want other people to know, so that hopefully they too can be freed from their pain."

    “As a mother of an adolescent young woman I can tell you that you have absolutely made a positive impact in her life.
    She first came to the Yoga for young women for the summer yoga camp in 2015.
    After that week with you I felt that I had my daughter back. ”

Michelle Fleming

Michelle found yoga and it saved her life. She stumbled into an Ashtanga class one afternoon and found it was the first thing that made her intense anxiety and depression dissipate. After tearing a ligament in her knee during a class - and finding that her scoliosis was worsening with the practice - she began to delve deeply into the anatomy behind the poses in an effort to find a safe and effective way to retain the exhilarating flow she loved so much.

She has since become a Yoga Therapist, a Thai Bodyworker, a Nerve and Artery specialist and a Board Certified Structural Integrator in the lineage of Ida Rolf. It was through these complementary practices of wellness that she healed her body - and from there Orthopedic Yoga Therapy was born.

These days she trains teachers and students to find a fluid pattern of movement that protects and nourishes the joints while stretching the muscles and connective tissue and quieting the mind. She is the owner of Sanctuary Wellness Studios, Director of Orthopedic Yoga and Transformational Yoga Therapy and founder of Equilibrium, a non-profit dedicated to bringing breath, movement and nutrition education to young people with anxiety and mood disorders. 

After living and learning all over the country, she now teaches internationally, bringing her unique style of yoga to students of all levels, ages, shapes and sizes. She has been teaching for almost 20 years and training teachers for over 10 years. She believes it is a blessing to be able to bring people the gifts of a strong body, a quiet mind and a blissful spirit.
