Practice with Michelle


Hi! Welcome to Yoga Freedom.

I’m Michelle.

I am a freelance human. Raised in Round Rock, Texas (just north of Austin), I discovered hatha yoga in 7th grade, met the Buddha in California in my early 20s, and moved abroad to Guatemala at 29.

Here and now, at 36, I find myself living at magical, mystical Lake Atitlán, heartland of the living Maya. I live in a small cabin with my Colombian partner, 4 year old daughter Jade, and our black cat and silly dog.

I’ve been leading weekend yoga and mindfulness retreats in Guatemala since 2010 that incorporate spiritual practice (yoga, mindfulness, meditation); creativity (writing, music, art); good food (mindful eating, healthy/vegetarian food); and community  (good company, sharing circles, laughter).

Taking a yoga retreat with me at Lake Atitlan will help you to deepen your personal practice; connect with the glory of nature; unplug and reconnect with your self and the simple perfection of this moment. You’ll make new spiritual friends and devote your time and energy to a great cause: healing, soulful practice.

I hope to see you, sooner than later, in a class or on retreat!

With metta,
