The Graceful Yogi: Michelle Chambers

I met Michelle in a very unexpected way - her job interview. I won't go into all the details, but let's just say that when she started to answer the questions, I instantly knew we needed her. I needed her. There was a calming presence just oozing out of her words, something that was very much lacking in our current work environment. Now, I may or may not have gotten her into a crazy mess she didn't expect, but I was adamant that she be hired. And let's be clear here, Michelle would become my "superior". I was the lowest rung on the ladder. But, I was sure convincing! A couple months passed, she started, and the day came that I was brave enough to enter her office and start up a conversation.

The rest, we say, is history. We became instant kindred spirits, spending most of our time together during the work day, and even coming up with the hashtag #dreamteam to describe our friendship. Early on I learned about Michelle's dream to be a full time yoga teacher. And early on, I knew she'd be much more than that. 

She embodies the grace and the freedom that comes with yoga, both in the movement and in daily life. Today, she a teacher, trainer, and badass administrator with HauteYoga Queen Anne and Shefayoga.

And boy did we heat things up in the studio! I am so grateful for you, Michelle. Your dream is alive and well, and I can't wait to see where you go from here. <3 #dreamteam #4lyfe
