A special message from Michelle:
“This retreat was created after months of inspiration, or subtle ‘shoulder tapping’ of spirit. I have felt an inner knowing and peace that if I create the right container, the right people will show up. By accepting this call to provide this container I know within my heart that those that need to be at this retreat are receiving the call to show up. I would describe ‘the call’ as an inner knowing that this is where you need to be, without any logic or reasoning required. Will you accept the call? I hope you do. I can’t wait to meet you there.”
About Victoria Kromhout:
I was first exposed to yoga at the age of six at a Montessori School where I grew up in Scottsdale AZ. Through my young adult life, I continued to be exposed to yoga and it seemed that yoga was always manifesting stability and joy. I began my training when I was 23 after injuring my back on the Fire Department. I started my focus on Kripalu and Iyengar yoga. Through this fullness and healing I continued my yogic journey seeking out workshops throughout Arizona and California where I was able to gain a depth of understanding and experience that I live for sharing now. I completed my 200 hour RYT with YogaWorks here at the Yoga Center in San Luis Obispo with Malachi Melville and Greville Henwood in 2010.
I continued my 300 hour training with Master Ayurveda teacher James Bailey, founder of Sevanti Institute, and Peter Sterios at Levity Yoga in 2016. Even though my yoga journey has included hundreds of hours seminars, teacher trainings, and workshops, what sets me apart from other teachers is my ability to connect with individual students and help them discover their own path to the benefits of yoga and Ayurveda. Part of my advanced teacher training took me to India, where I experienced a deep and profound personal healing through Ayurvedic treatment. Immersing myself in the culture where yoga was born was life changing. There I discovered the truth, that I am the light and the love that I was seeking. My mission is to help others find this knowing for themselves.
My drive to nourish and care centers around my family. I want to foster a feeling of safety and fun that allows open communication, creative expression, and community. With three active children, jobs, careers, and passions for various pursuits, our lifestyle can get very hectic. Providing good food, a loving environment, and a home for my family is what I live for. Nourish by Victoria is an extension of that desire to provide warmth, care and love to my community.
I was naturally drawn to yoga for the sense of peace, calming, healing, and belonging it brought to my spirit since childhood. I enjoy teaching and practicing strong, vinyasa flow style Yoga classes as well as blissful restorative ones. I share my passion for life and joy by sharing yoga with spirits of all ages.
