“A Jivamukti Yoga class with Michele is physically and spiritually uplifting; she teaches yoga as a means to enlightenment, and awakens your remembrance of what is eternally beautiful and absolutley peaceful.”
– Sharon Gannon: Co-founder and Guru of Jivamukti Yoga
“I’ve studied and practiced yoga for 36 years. Though I have always had extraordinary teachers, Michelle Baker is certainly the best teacher I have ever had. It’s not just her beautiful voice, her intuitive and physically and mentally challenging classes, her clear, spiritual base or her humor and humanity that make her classes so special. Michelle herself is a true beacon of positive, healing vibrations and her light is infectious. Michelle is an absolute Goddess-send to New Orleans.”
– Sallie Anne Glassman; Voo-doo Priestess.
"I had the great fortune to study Jivamukti yoga with Michele in Costa Rica this year. She has the gift of spiritual power or shakti that you really feel from the moment you enter the room with her. The depth and breadth of her understanding of the yoga philosophy and practices was both enriching and accessible. She has the rare ability to integrate both her extensive knowledge and her spiritual energy into a fun, exciting, hip, physically challenging and well-paced yoga class. New Orleans is very lucky indeed."
– Natalie Ulman, Senior teacher, Jivamukti Yoga Center, NY.
"Not all yoga teachers are alike. Michele glows with a warm, beautiful and spiritual aura that I feel during our sessions. She stands out in the very top range of my experiences. Since I am 81 years old, her ability to tailor the experience for each individual is essential and I now have a new lease on life."
