Michelle Newton

Michelle has been practicing yoga for over 12 years and has studied it in depth in both Australia and India. She is also interested in meditation, ayurveda, energetic healing and traditional Chinese medicine among many other therapies. When not writing about the wealth of wisdom in these therapies, Michelle edits and writes for business and corporate - a far cry from natural therapies! Michelle believes the best therapies though are fresh air, deep breaths, laughter, the ocean, good friends, and of course regular yoga classes.
