Here’s My Whole Life Action Plan for June

June is a great month which symbolizes activity, passion and potential, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. So here’s my Whole Life Action Plan that takes a holistic health approach and includes- ritual, new food for my stomach and all 5 senses, celebration of the sun and loved ones, and even nothing (yes, nothing).summer solstice energy

Join me and create your own…share it here…and together let’s harness the BLAZING Summer Solstice energy!

Week of June 1st – Daily Ritual with Our On-line Network Community for Yoga. Our goal is Self Renewal and Increased Joy: balancing sodium and sugar, your glandular system, and the left and right hemispheres of your brain, and increasing youthfulness and health. Includes meditation and dance for inner and outer JOY!

Week of June 7th – Leave-the-Office-Earlier-Day. Though it officially is June 2nd why not select a day this week to give yourself an afternoon with nothing scheduled and see where your heart leads you.

Week of June 14th – Pop more Antioxidant-Rich Berries and Create Something New. Over a bed of greens, add sliced strawberries, fennel and orange with 1 ½ Tbsp. fresh lemon juice and 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil. Add salt, pepper, and orange zest to taste.

Week of June 21st – Celebrate Twice. On June 20th, Father’s Day, think about one unforgettable lesson your father taught you. If you can, share it with him. If not, share it with us! On June 21st, celebrate Summer Solstice. If in New York, join 100s of us for a Free yoga class in Times Square and a Solstice Gift Bag. Visit (and hey, we’re the 3rd partnering yoga studio!)

Week of June 28th – Feed All 5 Senses. Listen to music with eyes closed, fill your mouth with a peach, luxuriate in a foot, hand or head massage, smell a rose (the official flower of June), and look into the eyes of a loved one for 3 minutes.

  • I’m looking forward to celebrating June with everyone! It’s such a beautiful month…everything is so green and lush. And the summer foods are some of my favorites. So, enjoy everyone and report back as I will do also.

    This month’s Dial-Up Yoga focus on Self-Renewal and Increase Joy goes so right along with this…great choice, Michele! Thanks!

    Blessings to all.

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.
