Michelle Compas, Meditation Instructor
I grew up surrounded by deep spiritual roots, teachings and practices that exuded a
mindful and contemplative lifestyle. My fast-faced corporate career kicked off the quest to find
the grounding and mindful disciplines that yoga and meditation offer. I completed my 200-
hour Hatha Yoga training in 2013 at Sheridan College and have completed an additional 300
hours of training from the Kripalu lineage.
These intensive studies focused Meditation, Pranayama, Kripalu Vinyasa, Nadis & Granthis. The principles of Sukha (comfort) and Sthira (effort) are the root influence in my teaching style and they are often reminders to students to connect to a mindful practice. I'm inspired by how small shifts make big changes and how slowing down offers a different perspective on almost everything. Some other studies I have completed include Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Thai Yoga Massage, Craniosacral Therapy and Chinese Medicine. I am also a certified Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra® instructor, Meditation Teacher and Usui Reiki Master. I look forward to being a part of your mindful journey!
I work full-time as an IT Project Manager for the Halton Regional Police and I live in
Burlington with my family, including two Australian Shepherds and two cats. Most evenings and weekends I can be found guiding yoga and meditation classes.
Something you’ll find on my bucket list is to volunteer at a sloth sanctuary in Costa Rica.
