Your Instructor

Michele Anderson is a 200-hour Radiant Child Yoga teacher and certified K-12 special education teacher. She uses Radiant Child Yoga in her own classroom to help students become calm, focused, and self-regulated. Beginning with Morning Movement and Mindfulness has made a big difference in her students’ ability to become more self-aware and able to learn. She felt so strongly about the benefits of Radiant Child Yoga that she decided to share it with the entire school.  In 2018, she began a Yoga Club, which boasted nearly 90 students at its peak. She also teaches the entire student body yoga and mindfulness techniques during monthly assemblies.

Michele is a certified Level 1 Aerial Yoga teacher through Good Karma Yoga Studio, specializing in kids and teens aerial classes.  She attended the Mindfulness in Education training at The Omega Institute for Holistic studies in 2018, and is currently being trained in trauma-sensitive Kundalini yoga through the Guru Ram Das Center. She plans to offer classes to for individuals with chronic health issues in the near future.

In 2019, she completed the Radiant Child Facilitator training and is happy to now offer trainings for others who are interested in sharing the beauty of yoga with children.

Michele teaches yoga classes at both her private studio in Red Hook, NY as well as Rainbow Body Yoga Studio. When not in a studio, you can find her on the athletic field sharing yoga with student athletes and their coaches. She tries not to just teach yoga, but BE the yoga, and is thrilled to share her passion with others.

Yoga & Calisthenics – with Michael Stein and Julian Starks – Sat., 10/26 – 1:00-3:00pm

This workshop is designed for Intermediate and Advanced practitioners who would like to learn how to bring more Core and Shoulder strength into their practice. By using a wide variety of methods we can gain more strength and flexibility around the knee joint, hip joint, and rotator cuff.  
Stabilizing these areas not only builds strength but also reduces the risk of injury in all forms of movement.
