Her greatest insights and education into the power of Yoga, Yoga therapy and other mind-body modalities have been through alleviating and healing her own pain from scoliosis, knee surgery, hyper-mobility and depression. Michelle teaches in both Europe and the U.S.A. She teaches Yoga classes online as well as online Yoga therapy for stress reduction, pain relief and posture correction. She teaches Yoga workshops and Yoga retreats in-studio around the world

Norma Goodrick

Norma Goodrick is certified in Yamuna Body Rolling, Foot Fitness, Table Treatment, and the foundational work of Body Logic. Norma is passionate about empowering people to get out of pain through education and the guidance of Yamuna’s work.

Norma is a mother of seven and grandmother of 16. Michelle is her fourth child. Working as Aerobic Director for the YMCA, Norma was certified to teach both Stott Pilates and Yoga. While attending fitness conferences and searching for ways to improve the problems that years of pregnancy had created in her own body, she discovered Yamuna Zake. As a Yoga instructor herself, Yamuna’s work emphasized holistic healing. A therapeutic approach that focuses on the bone and using pressure and traction to release areas of restriction and pain. She immediately loved the work and spent many years traveling to New York to train directly under Yamuna Zake. She then integrated this work with the knowledge her daughter Michelle had of psychology and Yoga Therapy to co-create the Karmuka Yoga Method.
