Michelle Parmita Voeller relocated to San Juan del Sur September, 2017 after living in Denver, Colorado for eighteen years. She created Harmony Yoga studio in 2006 and built a thriving community there for a decade. Selling the studio was the first step in expanding her world beyond the studio walls, which has now led her to living in Nicaragua with her boyfriend, Joe, and her dog, Daisy. Yoga has been a lifestyle since she began her practice in 1998 and teaching yoga in 2004. Her training is based in Classical Hatha Yoga (200-HR Hatha Yoga Institute, Colorado, 2004) and Yoga Therapy through the lens of Ayurveda (300 HR, Rocky Mountain Institute of Yoga & Ayurveda, Colorado, 2008). She is also a Level 2 Reiki Practitioner, a Japanese energy technique that supports health & inner balance.
She is grateful for the opportunity to attend numerous trainings and workshops over the years with many inspiring teachers. Her main teacher is Sri Baba Hari Dass of the Mount Madonna Center in Santa Cruz, California, whose wisdom is based in Ashtanga Yoga of Pantanjali, The 8-Limbed Path of Yoga, including breath (pranayama) and meditation. He gave her the name “Parmita”, Limitless. Other incredible teachers include over a decade of meditation practice with Lauren Skye of Inner Connection Institute and Jon & Susan Bernhardt of Essence Reiki Trainings, Denver, Colorado.
Michelle has developed and taught Yoga Teacher Trainings, international retreats, workshops, classes ranging from therapeutic/restorative to physically challenging, corporate classes, and individuals. Whether in a studio or on a tropical yoga retreat, her passion is guiding grounded and inspiring practices that align us to our whole, amazing, bright Selves.
