Project Description

Michelle Gorden

Michelle was born and raised in Iowa. Being an athlete since childhood, into college and beyond has always pushed her to try new sports and activities. Traveling to various cities in her 20’s, she found yoga for the first time at Sumits Yoga in Scottsdale, AZ. From that day forward, her passion for the practice sparked and she became a daily practitioner. Experiencing the amazing benefits of yoga, not only for the body, but for the mind too, pushed her to want to learn more. She eventually enrolled in a 200 hour yoga teacher training at Body Heat Hot Pilates and Yoga in Las Vegas, NV. Over the years, Michelle tried various styles of yoga including Ashtanga, Hatha, Bikram, and Vinyasa yoga. She enjoyed the variety, yet always missed the amazing benefits and community she received at Sumits.

When Michelle moved to Kansas City three years ago, she set out to practice and teach at various studios and finally found one of her homes right here at Sumits KC. As an instructor for three years, Michelle has been exposed to many amazing people, many of whom have remarkable testimonies of how incredible yoga has been for the human body-physically, mentally and spiritually.
