Michelle Wert

I’m a Yoga and Movement Educator, an illustrator and a proud new Mommy. I am deeply interested in how the body moves and in feeling good. I’m skilled at demystifying the practice of yoga and like to invite inquiry into movement. Simplifying complex postures into smaller, digestible pieces is my jam. My yoga classes are open to all levels and explore building strength, awareness and resilience in the body, not only through traditional asanas, but through playful movements as well. In my classes can expect thoughtful sequencing and natural movement that you can take with you into your daily life. And, I like to include an opportunity to restore -- even for just a few moments -- into each of my classes. •

When I’m not teaching or drawing, I’m playing with my daughter and learning how to move all over again. She is my best teacher. Spending an entire day with her and my husband is pretty much all I look forward to; and I would happily spend all my days just spending time and exploring with them. •

As far as my time in the field, I have been teaching yoga for nearly 7 years in New York City and hold 500RYT and 200ERYT designations. I called Yogaworks in New York my home for many years and found my voice as a teacher and a teacher trainer there. I am also Yoga Tune-Up Certified and anticipate starting my Yoga Therapy training in 2020. • michellewert.com / @wertmichelle

The November Library classes are working out really well for me because I’m in a different time zone that makes the live classes Inconvenient. Frequently, I’ll follow 20 to 30 minutes of a longer class, working it In around my current schedule. Love the flexibility and also seeing Michelle—almost as immediate as the Zoom live classes.

I haven’t tried the lessons yet but I’m looking forward to them! I opened one and it’s just like you’re there live!

Hi Michelle!

I love your classes that I purchased. They are just what I need. Thank you for you gentle teaching style and explanation on getting into poses with very nice visuals to help me understand where I need to make connections in my body.
