Michelle Dortignac, founder of Unnata® Aerial Yoga, is a certified yoga instructor of over 20 years, while during most of those years also being a professional aerial acrobatics performer.
In 1991, Michelle moved to NYC to study Dance and Yoga. The two practices became integrated for her. In 1998, she became certified to teach Vinyasa Yoga by Cyndi Lee through the OM Yoga center, and began teaching at the center. In 2002, Michelle transitioned her Dance training from the floor to the air, learning the circus art form of Tissu/Silks. That same year, she left OM Yoga center, continuing to explore her unique vision of Aerial Dance and Yoga. She practiced at home, in Circus studios, and at the renowned Dharma Mittra Yoga center, culminating all her studies into this combined class – Unnata Aerial Yoga.
Since its inception in 2006, Unnata® Aerial Yoga has been influential in the growth of popularity of the aerial yoga genre, with more than 200 Unnata Aerial Yoga teachers spread worldwide.
Michelle describes her classes as: alignment-based, breath-filled, calm and core-building.
Michelle’s music: No music.
