Massage Therapist, Yoga Teacher and dharma massage OwnerCYT/RYT/LMTI graduated from Blue Sky School of Professional Massage and Therapeutic Bodywork in 2009 after a career in the retail industry. I am also a certified yoga teacher and hold a BA from UW-Oshkosh. Yoga has helped me, not only find myself, but also a path in which I can share with others this wonderful gift we have inside ourselves: the power, strength and courage to be who we are. I believe you find yoga when you are ready to start to find out who you really are. Yoga has been the mainstay of light and stability through the transitions life has brought me. It has helped me find not only myself but also a path in which I can share with others this wonderful gift we have inside ourselves: the power, strength and courage to be who we are. Yoga is one of my mediums to connect and open a conversation of transformation, to allow students to connect to their way of being. Yoga is for every “BODY”; come as you are and be you, there is nothing more inspiring. Come explore your possibilities. I am so excited to combine both massage and yoga. Together the synergies of these two modalities are very powerful and I can’t wait to share them with you.As a therapist, business owner and person, I am aware of the far-reaching effect our lives have on others and the power of a healing touch. Each massage is catered to the client’s needs using a variety of modalities with a mindful, nurturing touch. I have worked in spas, provided sports massage at the Green Bay Marathon and currently pursuing my interests in Energy Work.

I have spent a large portion of my life in self-study and personal development as I believe to know thyself is one of the greatest gifts you can offer the world. I have accumulated a variety of degrees, certifications and diplomas, all in pursuit of this self-knowledge. Yoga and meditation supports me in living a holistic life, balancing mind, body, heart and spirit, as I am in constant change, healing, learning, contemplating and growing.
As a coach, mentor and yoga teacher I offer knowledge, wisdom and experience on the journey of self-discovery. I have been meditating since I was 16. I encourage self-compassion, self-acceptance and kind honesty with my clients and students. I am guided by my intuition and heart intelligence when teaching classes and in each personal session. Many of my clients and students say they experience clarity, wonder, confidence and mindfulness when in class or session with me. My philosophy is “everyday sacred,” the potential and possibility that is within each of us is there to live every single day.
I love to spend my time in nature, being with my husband, my dog and horse, cooking and eating great food, practicing meditation and yoga, reading and discussing spirituality and philosophy with my friends and spending time outside during a full moon!
My background includes 30 plus years of education/experience in communication and neuro-linguistic programming, food and cooking, philosophy and metaphysical sciences, heart intelligence, psychosomatic analysis and therapy, meditation, massage, Reiki and energy healing, nature and forest therapy and yoga.
Daily ritual for a fulfilling life

"Between every two pines there is a doorway to a new world." John Muir
"Michelle has the uncanny ability to ask questions that cause one's core/subconscious to awaken to needed answers and reveal next steps. After sessions with Michelle I consistently experience deep peace and a relaxing clarity of mind (lack of mental chatter). I highly recommend the HeartMath Resilience program, and especially as connected to Life Coach work with Michelle Novenski."
