Michelle & Amy with Djimbe - by Trees - Aug #2 soft“Michelle exudes the quiet power that comes from knowledge, experience, and skill. She leads and you follow; she guides and you accept; she breathes and in turn, your breath deepens and quiets. She provides in her teaching, in her being, guidance and direction given with love and affection. Michelle is not about the romance of Yoga, but the physical and spiritual work of Yoga. One need not be steeped in technical terms to understand her lead. In her strength and guidance I feel so comfortable in surrendering. Leaving her class is always bittersweet, for within the span of a very few moments, it feels like home.”

Bobby Gene Long, Professional Artist & Photographer, Chicago, Il

 

“Practice with Michelle is truly a wonderful mind-body-spirit experience. She brings her expertise from multiple yoga styles together seamlessly, makes each class unique, works amazingly well with yogis of all levels, and wraps it all together by guiding students to practice mindfully and with intention. Michelle’s classes are among the best I have experienced in my nearly 25 years of practice.”

Phyllis Kennedy, Senior Manager-Corporate Communications, Northbrook, Il

 

 

“I can tell that Michelle has a broad and deep knowledge of the practices she presents and I never feel talked down to.  I come away from each of Michelle’s Tantra and Creation Yoga workshops with something unique – an exercise or a new understanding or appreciation of something in my life.  I especially enjoy the Creation Yoga sessions.  I recommend these to anybody who wants to resonate with the theme of the workshop. “

 Jack, Attorney, Chicago Il

 

“Michelle/Puranpreet Kaur is a committed and dedicated Kundalini yoga instructor.  She is hungry for knowledge and her curiosity is matched by her desire to share her love of Kundalini yoga with her students. As a Kundalini yoga instructor myself, I find her teaching style engaging with an unusual blend of both strength and nurturing. She gently pushes people to expand and discover themselves during class while radiating her own inner Light and Love.  Her passion for Kundalini yoga and her students is obvious.

“I have known Michelle Fiore as a yoga teacher since 2012. Her teaching is outstanding and her interpersonal skills utilized in her classes are also amazing.  She works well with all students and easily adjusts her teaching style depending on the level of the student.  Michelle has demonstrated knowledge of various types of yoga. She has instilled an intensity of interest and appreciation for yoga within me – not an easy task. One of the most valid measures of her success as a teacher is her ability to stimulate growth – she inspires me to excel within my practice of yoga.”

“Being a full-time student as well as balancing the added stresses that life and work bring to the table have been extremely challenging and somewhat daunting for me. Michelle has quite literally changed my life, both physically and spiritually. After seeing her passion for yoga and being invited to attend a single session, I now find myself able to better enjoy the beauty and fullness this world has to offer. Physically I am sleeping better, eating healthier and I am much more flexible. Her level of expertise and patience adds to her talents while she exudes confidence and happiness onto her students and surroundings. She has greatly helped me understand my purpose and path in life. I would highly recommend her teachings to anyone and everyone.”

“I regularly practice yoga with Michelle and find her approach to be a different than every other instructor I’ve taken classes with. In large part, that is because Michelle’s approach to yoga is not restricted to achieving the physical postures but also includes the spiritual, meditative and philosophical aspects as well. That balanced focus does a lot to elevate the yoga experience. I heartily recommend anyone who is looking for a new yoga experience, whether novice or veteran, to try a class with Michelle.”
