Yin Yoga


This class is taught by:

Sherri Drehobl


I was injured in 2004-I experienced severe physiological and neurological impairment, and after multiple surgeries and over two years of physical therapy, I was not satisfied with western medicine and my prognosis for a lifetime of pain. So, I chose to explore other avenues. I began to meditate, practice visualization, and yoga in 2007. I found the key to my own healing- physical and spiritually. I changed my perspective and chose to live a life filled with appreciation. In 2008, returned to college and became an Occupational Therapy Assistant and have been working primarily with challenged children in schools since then. I have spent over a decade working with physical and sensory challenges and have come to appreciate that each of us has an “edge” and to learn how to adapt, modify as needed, and become stronger. In 2017, I continued my personal growth by taking the yoga teacher training at Mt Yoga, an experience that I would recommend to anyone wishing to grow their knowledge of yoga and its benefits.

I hope to share the beauty and peace that yoga has brought to my life with you…I hope you will come join me!

Michelle Davis found yoga in 2014 seeking a form of fitness that was kinder to the body than Barre or working out on gym equipment. The journey began to offer so much more than she ever imagined possible. In 2015, she found herself enrolled in 200hr Yoga Teacher training while helping to manage Elite Yoga studio. She has completed 200hr certification in Vinyasa with Yin training. She often says “Yoga chose me”.

Michelle continues to attend many workshops and training's to enhance her teaching and be able to share with her students. Her next step will be to attend and complete her 500hr RYT. As an avid fitness enthusiast, Michelle has also completed a marathon benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma society and is also certified to teach Spin cycle and METAFIT HIIT.

Her favorite pastimes include outdoor yoga, SUP yoga, hiking and spending time with her Boxers Maggie and Bentley. Michelle is more than thrilled to be able to share her passion for yoga and meditation with the Mt. Yoga community.

Yin Yoga has it’s roots as part of the original Hatha Yoga tradition. Yin Yoga combines the influences of Indian Yoga with Chinese Daoist practices and Western sciences to improve our health on many levels.Most forms of yoga today are dynamic, active practices designed to work only half of our body; the muscular half of our body. Yin Yoga allows us to work the other half; The deeper Yin tissues of our ligaments, joints and even our bones. Yin Yoga mobilizes and strengthens the joints, facia and connective tissue. The emphasis is on long-held poses.Yin Yoga is very supportive. Props are an important part of the Yin practice; therefore we use blankets, bolsters and straps. Props help the practitioner surrender to long held poses.After a Yin practice the body feels deeply relaxed as if the practitioner just experienced a message. Yin yoga will also help in finding a deeper expression in the vinyassa practice. The practitioner may also be able to experience have an ability to achieve a deeper expression of the poses
