Michelle Nayali Bouvier
Creative Arts: Hoop Vinyasa
A lifelong dancer-scientist-yogini-mystic, yoga found Michelle at age 15 and transformed her world. Today Michelle is certified Prana VinyasaTM E-RYT 500+, on her way to a Professional 1008hr Certification, as well as an Advanced Certified AcroYoga teacher, Thai Yoga Therapist, creator of Vinyasa of the Hoop & Circle Sadhana, and a pioneer in the global Hoopdance movement.
The perfection of the Universe revealed itself through her dance with the circle, the Hoop, which merged her lifetime love of math, geometry, and patterns of flow, the varied skills of her physical training, the sensitivity of awareness cultivated in yogic practice, with a playful and infinitely creative tool for ecstatic embodiment. In love at first spin in 2006, Nayeli is still in awe of the hoop’s power as a personal practice to transform emotions, empower our authentic selves, and open up new pathways of movement expression. A pioneer of the form, Michelle is a leading teacher in the still growing hoop community, uniquely weaving in yoga, biomechanics and philosophy into offering the hoop as a personal sādhana (spiritual practice).
