KriyaAsana 200hr YTT / Jan & Feb / GOZO

MBY has been guiding practicing yoga for 20 years and guiding classes for 13 years now. Her dedication to her self practice has made her teaching life rich with encounters from students & teachers that ride on the same wave, whether they’re just beginning or are further along on their journey.

MichelleBartoloYoga’s semi private (maximum 8 students) 200hr Teacher Training course provides you with an in depth training to connect to the teacher in you.

Through our union we dive into self discovery with soul, heart & play where you’ll find your inner mystic and then share that with others that come for your message.

MBY will lead you into your own self practice through her teacher training which is where you’re authentic voice will shine through to bring you all the students who need what you are practicing.

MBY’s teacher training will teach you more than how to teach yoga. With a strong intention on personal improvement, psychological flexibility, opening up to allow energy to move through you this course is designed not only to provide students with tools to share the wisdom of yoga with others, yet also to look at their own lives from a spiritual perspective. Each training holds a unique energy, created from like minded souls.

As we train & embody this approach, we open up to the wisdom and the teacher that is already within us all. We dance, we chant, we sing. We find community with like-minded people and we embrace the stillness within ourselves. We call on our intuition for the answers and we speak from spirit to spirit. We dive deep into the experience, free from unnecessary distractions and allow our authentic connection to emerge.

Each day carries an intention, a spiritual lesson of the day, that we each set for ourselves along with the efforts that need to be made to achieve it. We begin each class with a meditation, followed by a 90 minute kriyaasana practice.

Then we dip into learning yogic theory, yogic practice & healing through group discussions. During this time we cover the fundamentals of yogic living, including yogic diet, anatomy, meditation, cleansing practices, pranayama, Ayurveda and sharing all the things in our lives we’d no longer like to carry around.

Our trainings also open up to include other methods of healing, calling on not just the physical and mental elements but also the more subtle forms such as energy healing.

We share the Art of Teaching and the Art of Touch, during which students learn to teach a segment of a class in every class we share. We will include Kundalini Kriyas to unravel any blockages in our roots so our serpent energy can rise; a Slow Flow which is a slow, meditative, practice followed by Vinyasa Flow, a more intense, breath-synchronized flow. We also share the fundamentals of intelligent sequencing and explore alignment and adjustment of poses in depth. Each class will end with meditation & kirtan (chanting).

This course is open to people of all yoga abilities. We simply ask that participants set an intention to devote their time and energy to the process of being present and open to becoming. We also suggest, that you work to establish your own personal yoga practice, through attending classes or workshops, or on your own. Set intention, with an open heart and mind, to fully embrace and experience the yogic lifestyle during your training and beyond.

Prior to the training, MBY recommends that students do a regular practice whether that is on their own or attend classes and choose a flow to practice regularly before our training begins. We will cover these flows in detail during the course, and it is great to be familiar with them.

MBY’s intention is to guide students through their own healing journey in order to better prepare them for healing others, letting go of anything that holds them back from what their hearts are truly called to. Together we unveil the essence, learning to taste the sweet nectar of life while flowing in the world with strength and grace.

Open yourself to what is there, leave all expectations behind and enter the enlightened perspective and sacred landscape of your training with an open heart – whatever comes will be exactly what you need.

Amber DiGiorgio / Kirtan Artist & Yoga Teacher:

I chose to study for my 200-hour yoga training with Michelle one on one and I have to say I wouldn’t have had it any other way. Since it was just the two of us we could really focus on my particular strengths and weaknesses both as a student and as a teacher-to-be. She went over all the curriculum to give me a broad understanding of the physical as well as spiritual aspects of the practice and then was able to pay particular attention to the areas that I was most interested in or that I needed to develop more. She’s kind, caring and encouraging with also having the strength a teacher needs to discipline her students to help shape them into well rounded teachers themselves. It was hard work that was also joyful. I loved every minute of my training with her


Anne Soffeken / Osteopath:

I was incredibly lucky to train to be a yoga teacher in a one on one course with Michelle. She guided me through the exploration of aspects of the yoga lifestyle which I had only touched upon before. She recognised the areas of potential for growth and I truly feel like I can integrate what I learned into my practice, teaching and life. I often think back to our sessions and would do it the same way again today.
