4 Steps for a Summer Body + Year ‘Round

  • Gourmet Chef doing YogaTired of struggling each summer to lose weight, exercise more, and eat healthier food?
  • Would you like a proven process that is easy to do, plus on-going support that guarantees your success?
  • Would you like your efforts to be MULTIPLIED?
    MULTIPLY the benefits of exercise AND healthy cooking
    MULTIPLY the tools so you save time AND money
    MULTIPLY the results so they’re both immediate AND long lasting

If YES, here’s how with our Gourmet Fitness program.

You’ll start with “Yoga for Anyone, Anywhere.” You begin with a rigorous workout to lose those extra pounds, increase energy, and release all that stress no matter your weight or age.  And after our class, you can easily do it at your home, your desk, or even on a park bench.

Then you’ll join our cooking class with quick, healthy and great tasting recipes.  You’ll focus on the keys to weight loss, how to set and maintain healthy boundaries, and deal with challenging situations that trigger emotional eating. You’ll tap into your “inner-chef” and learn how to cook fabulous meals for you and your family.

Plus our approach guarantees success because rather than focusing on will power (which is usually the most difficult place to start changing your life), we focus on mindset that’s a whole lot easier and includes learning to be your best friend.  You make changes from an inside-out perspective and create a lifestyle that’s long-lasting.

We all know change takes time.  And research shows it takes 30-90 days to form a new habit.  That’s why we’re providing support that is critical to your building a strong foundation and staying on track:

  • Hands-on Learning– do a workout, relax, and then help prepare a delicious meal that you can easily make any day of the week
  • Workbook, Progress Report, & Tips– you will have all you need to maintain the exercises and meditation, prepare healthy meals, and have nutritional alternatives to those empty calories and snacks
  • Daily Reminders– to keep you motivated and moving towards your goals
  • Private Call- make sure your practice is most effective and beneficial by having all questions answered in a follow up phone call with Michele

What People Are Saying. . .
I just completed Michele’s 90-day MORE program. As Michele will remind you, if you decide to study with her, things don’t happen to us; they happen for us. Michele happened for me just when I needed what she is committed to teaching. Commitment is the key word because she is always thinking of what she can do to help others live happy, successful lives filled with joy. She takes care to really understand what each of her students needs and instinctively suggests just the right message, yoga exercise, meditation, food, experience, etc., that will resonate with them to help them courageously live the life they want. Michele is a gift you deserve to give yourself when you’re finally ready to live your best, authentic life.

...I have suffered from emotional eating for 6 years, during which I have juggled and switched through different therapists and treatment options. I continued to feel "stuck" as the approaches focused on the past and why I acquired my disease. ...Michele's plan of remaining present- right here, right now- in addition to helping me choose love for myself, has allowed me to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually... Michele is a true gift from God.

The benefits have been significant. My reason for doing this yoga is to improve and maintain good health. Each morning class provides me with the motivation to get up and improve my physical and mental strength. I also think one of the greatest things about Michele’s 365 Yoga Course is I can join a class any day of the week, drop in at any time during the class and leave at a time that works for me and my schedule, from anywhere I am.
