What People Say About Michelle Lam

This year at a YTT (Yoga Teacher Training) during the week dedicated to the anatomy, I met Michelle Lam a physiotherapist truly exceptional, funny and friendly. Very professionally prepared she was able with her lessons,to explain us in details a subject so complex concerning anatomy. She used practical examples performed on us (especially to those who had particular problems, or had had them) making the arguments so much easier to understand. I hope and I suggest to invite again a so good teacher, in future courses, so to continue the study with her. With to you I have learned many interesting things about the secrets of our body. Thank you very much Michelle ! ~Paola Lucia Grechi[/quote] [quote]I met Michelle in my recent yoga teacher training in Vikasa. She was the anatomy teacher for the course. Michelle is very fun, lively and yet also firm in passing on her knowledge to her students. Her voice is the first thing that caught my attention. She spoke so clearly that her knowledge and expertise were passed on to me substantially. Her classes are also very lively with a lot of demonstration, participation, and guided interactions amongst students in order for us to deeply understand human anatomy as applied in yoga practice. At the same time, this promoted a closer bond between the students in the course. I felt so lucky to learn from Michelle. Her knowledge has brought significant awareness and changes in my practice as well as in my journey of teaching yoga. Thank you so much! Namaste 🙂 ~ Sam Hah[/quote] [quote] I have participated in two Yoga Teacher Trainings (200 hour and 500 hour) with Michelle instructing the anatomy curriculum. Although I have participated in other anatomy workshops, I am always impressed by the huge amount of knowledge Michelle imparts in the period of time that she is given. There is no padding to fill in time and all her information is communicated succinctly and clearly. Armed with marker pens and her sense of humour, she takes her students on a voyage of discovery with their own bodies and others. Being a physiotherapist and physical therapist, Michelle has the comprehensive knowledge regarding anatomical issues. She has the communication skills to relay the information in an accurate but entertaining way. She educates her students to look for anatomical concerns in themselves and their students and offers ways to assist in working with and/or remedying those concerns. If a student applies him/herself with full attention to Michelle’s classes, he/she will walk away with a very comprehensive understanding of simple and complex human anatomy and its application to yoga. I have also on a number of occasions attended Michelle’s clinic as a patient and sent students to her to address non-yoga related injuries. Her communication regarding her treatments has always been very clear and succinct. This has then assisted me in building an appropriate practice for those students. I am fortunate in my journey in yoga to have been taught by Michelle Lam. The knowledge she has imparted so succinctly has assisted me in teaching students with injuries and anatomical variations. She has also taught me how to keep a keen eye on all my students to prevent yoga injuries through unsafe asana practice. Thanks Michelle! ~Kerill Ezzy [/quote] [quote]I found the overall training to be very informative and useful. I especially liked the anatomy classes, Michelle was easy to understand and I felt that I could absorb the information. I really enjoyed this workshop. Thanks for organizing this! And a big thank you for the excellent workshop. ~ Anonymous
