“Approximately three years ago, I started attending the Om Shanti Belize center. And this was the start of my spiritual journey, or more aptly, the awakening of my spiritual self. I have been drawn to this very positive, peaceful, uplifting and inspiring place where I was first introduced to hot yoga and various other types. I fell in love with all her classes I had attended, in particularly, hot yoga as it “provided me with both physical and mental benefits – increased flexibility, strength, balance, and toning, and mental focus, awareness and endurance! Michelle not only incorporates meditation in all her classes, but also introduces numerous methods of holistic healing therapies! I attended the integrative breath work and reiki I & II workshops! The knowledge that I have attained and the tools that I am now equipped with have forever impacted my life in the most positive and fulfilling way! I am so grateful to have met Michelle! She is truly an inspiration!”

“Michelle provides incredible services at Om Shanti Apart from yoga, she is always looking for different ways to broaden our experiences, e.g. integrative breadth work with Lorraine,introduction to the benefits of essential oils with Debbie. Oh, I can’t forget the healing hands of Jaen. I have been practising Hot yoga at Om Shanti for about 2 years.Once you attend one of these classes you are hooked, line & sinker. Her classes has assisted with strengthening my body, calms my mind & regain my focus. Michelle has all the qualities of a superb instructor, she is a sweet,kind & caring person.Her class begins with 10-12 mins.of meditation,which is so relaxing for the mind & body and prepares us for an intensive & harmonizing workout.Trust me,we always get a very good “sweaty”workout .At times we can’t wait for Savasana .She ends her class with a few mins.of meditation & she always reminds us of the 2 most important things in life “Kindness in your heart & the breath”. Namaste Michelle, continue to be this beautiful soul.Last but not least ,Flo I enjoy yoga Nidra.”
