Michelle Helstrip BA(Hons) Dips.Yoga

International yoga teacher, therapist & writer Michelle Helstrip trained with Qi Yoga & Natural Therapies Australia, the British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) and Dru UK. She is also registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the UK government regulatory body, and as a Level 3 instructor with the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs). Michelle holds  Diplomas in Yoga Teaching from British & Australian associations and was one of the first Dru Yoga Therapists in the UK, with specialisms in Dru Yoga Therapy for Back Care and Prenatal.

Training with leading teachers from different traditions over many years has given her a unique perspective on yoga, which she shares through specialist workshops, tailored yoga courses, and the traditional one to one method of yoga teaching.

Michelle is a firm believer in the benefits of yoga for all, and is dedicated to bringing the message of yoga to those who may not see themselves as fitting the often misleading media image of yoga people. As a yoga therapist she has successfully worked with resolving both physical and stress-related issues, often via referrals from other health professionals.

In addition to teaching yoga & kirtan, Michelle writes yoga related articles.
