Michèle’s classes are embedded with an imaginative taste. She simultaneously integrates the traditional with her own personal style resulting in an Vinyasa flow that she has personally hand picked and tailored from the multidimensional styles out there. Ultimately, her lessons aim to expand personal limitations and with a little luck to liberate our inherent joviality through an in depth crusade to the self. A yoga practice with Michèle will guide you on a journey within that integrates traditional philosophy, proper alignment and mindfulness in a lighthearted manner. Each session will in turn provide students originating from all levels with the opportunity to return to their center.
Unite w/ Jenna & Michèle
In the spirit of musical festivities their joint class will humbly invite you to the world of yoga and the possibility of integrating it in the relationships we cultivate with ourselves, others and nature. Accompanied by the rhythms of the festival and guitarist, Matt Schwartz, this session will foster unity as well as celebration. Join them on a magic carpet ride at the Oceanside Pavillion and ride the wave of music, connectivity and love.
Jenna and Michèle are bigdreamsgoodevibes, they are one, yet they are authentic and extremely diverse individuals. Ying & Yang, the apple of each other’s eye (wink wink), sisters, friends and partners. They aspire to inspire students from all walks of life by providing them with a yoga practice that will invite awareness both on and off the mat. Rooting from mankind’s benevolent nature, they guide their students towards the cultivation of a yoga practice that welcomes creative expression, balance and flexibility.
Open your Heart w/Rachel
Open Your Heart – A dynamic, powerful, magical class awaits you! Creating space along the spine, across the upper back, shoulders, and the heart center, the arc of class follows the beats of the music. Flowing from one pose to the next, participants are encouraged to truly let go into the movement of the moment, providing space for deeper exploration of their yoga practice – opening up the front side of the body and letting go of the “sitting all day on the computer” shoulder hunch! Ending with a juicy, deep, relaxing Savasana allows the benefits of the practice to truly sink in. Open to all levels.
Happy Hips w/Rachel
This hip opening workshop is great for runners, athletes, and people that sit a lot! Taught in a flow style, with a focus on creating space within the pelvis, releasing muscle tension in the legs, and supporting the low back. Class is open to all levels of practice – please bring a bath/swim towel to use for support in different postures. Open to all levels.

Qigong Acu- Dance
Medical Qigong is using exercise as acupuncture to move Qi through meridians and increase blood circulation. Typically Qigong is very slow moving and meditative.
In order to expose more people to Qigong, especially young people, George Xavier Love, doctor of Oriental Medicine and licensed Acupuncture Physician transformed the Qigong movements into Dance. By speeding them up and performing to rhythmic lyrics and adding percussive sounds, Dr. Love has created a unique tool for teaching health through movement.
