Michele Dougard


Michele found healing in yoga after a car accident left her in pain. The relief she found from the physical part of the practice led her down the rabbit hole into a much deeper devotion for yoga. Investigating different principles and disciplines to form a well-rounded practice, she decided a teacher training was the next step and jumped in feet first. Over a decade later from her first class, she has earned her 200 RYT at Inlet Yoga, studied Katonah with Ivy Ray, and spent time studying with Laughing Lotus as well.

Ever the perpetual student, Michele is working toward her 300 Hour certification with Yoga Bohemia on LBI. Michele’s style of teaching is fun and playful as well as insightful, sometimes using unconventional sources for inspiration.

She believes her lighthearted approach to teaching puts students at ease, allowing them to fully embrace their practice.
