Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
My Manduka helps me practice discipline. My mat stands in the corner of my living room, reminding me that a daily practice is all I need.
-Nele Van Poucke

Yoga Style: Vinyasa
Practice with me here: Center for Yoga
My first yoga experience in a class setting was at a Bikram yoga class 12 years ago. Let's just say I was impressed. I could run 8 miles a day and couldn't make it through a 90 minute yoga class without feeling like I was going to be sick. I soon found other styles of yoga and would go to any workshop or conference I could find. I found that Michigan had some of the best yoga teachers around, so I decided to take my first teacher training in 2000 and open a studio. I recently finished a second teacher training with Jonny Kest Center for Yoga and am currently teaching at his Ann Arbor studio. I also teach a donation class and teach privates out of my home. I found my love of yoga and become exhilarated when sharing my practice with others. Yoga is an expression of life and life is about having fun. I teach vinyasa style but also lead arm balancing workshops and teach cardio yoga to pump up the heart. Free yourself to Be Yourself and just have a good time doing it! My classes are full of music, dance and yoga poses that challenge you in a way that all you can do is smile.
I am currently employed at Center for Yoga and teach classes in Ann Arbor, Michigan. You may also find me at the Center's other studios in West Bloomfield or Birmingham.
