IF IT DOESN'T CHALLENGE YOU, IT DOESN'T CHANGE YOU. -EMPOWERED YOGA + TEACHER TRAININGS


“The human body houses infinite potential, and it is through movement 
of body and stillness of mind that you unleash this potential.” -Empowered Yoga


At the core of Empowered Yoga in Edmonton, Alberta is Michele Theoret, a power yoga instructor, mom, life coach, and self proclaimed anatomy nerd. Theoret is passionate about connecting her background in sports medicine with her love for yoga to empower her community to connect with themselves and their bodies.

“It’s about getting people back into their body. Because the body talks, we just need to listen,” Theoret explains.

Empowered Yoga offers programs that combine the ancient tradition of yoga and eastern philosophies with modern Kinesiology, Psychology and coaching to create relevant, effective teacher trainings, workshops, retreats, and corporate wellness programs.
“I wanted to create something that was non-dogmatic and non-religious that empowers people to take responsibility for their own health and happiness, to live and love fully and to be not only comfortable but radiant in their own skin.” says Theoret.

Empowered Yoga teacher trainings are created for those looking for a tool to not just master yoga poses, to be able to take that experience out into their lives, to manage their realities that they find themselves in.

“Flexibility has little to do with wrapping your legs around your head and everything to do with wrapping your mind around whatever the moment throws at you,” says Thoeret, who believes that her flexible teacher trainings allow people to live empowered lives.
