KriyaAsana 200hr YTT

Michelle Bartolo Yoga’s semi private (maximum 8 students) 200hr KriyaAsana Teacher Training course provides you with an in depth training to connect to the teacher in you by releasing blockages of emotional energy, lack of movement & mental business which we’ve carried around for years.

 Through our union we dive into self discovery with soul, heart & play where you’ll find your inner mystic and then share that with others that come for your message.


KriyaAsana includes the traditions of Kundalini, Vinyasa, Mindful Meditation & Kirtan (chanting). Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® is called the Yoga of Awareness.

It is a dynamic, powerful tool that is designed to give you an experience of your soul.

In Kundalini Yoga we harness the mental, physical, and nervous energies of the body and put them under our will, which is the instrument of the soul. 

This technology precisely and consciously combines breath, mudra, eye-focus, mantra, body locks, and postures to balance the glandular system,

strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity, and purifiy the blood. It brings balance to the body, mind, and soul.

Vinyasa yoga helps us find our fluidity as we mimic this free flow in our everyday lives as a true yogi isn't one who can circus their bodies into different shapes -

A yogi is someone who can control their nervous system(s) through any difficult and/or challenging situation that life may present so we don't allow it to affect us in a negative way

Mindful meditation will teach us consciousness which in turn makes us more aware. Then we deserve the BLISS which is our SatNam (identity of truth) as we chant to our hearts desiresthrough mantra with Kirtan.


Michelle Bartolo has been in the fitness & health industry for 30 years now and is incredibly fascinated by the human mind/body. Michelle's yoga journey began when she noticed she was going way off balance. Having lost both of her parents from a very young age all her hidden issues were starting to bubble over in her twenties and this is when she realised she had some 'inner' work to do.

In 2010 Michelle travelled to Rishikesh, India and booked into an Ashram to do her 500hr Teacher Training in Transformational Yoga.

It was a game changer and this is where her self discovery began.

Michelle has since been teaching, training & offering retreats, privates, classes and 200 hr teacher trainings on an international level. M:ichelle's classes are inspired by the Kundalini tradition which she has practicing since 2011 and teaching for the past 6 years. Kundalini works very close to the nervous system on a subtle level and unpacks whatever we may have stored in our physical bodies both mentally & emotionally. Having been in the Yoga field now for 20 years this practice has incredibly results Michelle has witnessed in both herself and her students. Michelle has worked with the Red Cross teaching Yoga to refugees & to students who are suffering from depression, epilepsy, arthritis, insecurity, slipped discs, Attention Deficit Disorder & fibromyalgia.

One way to live is with the intention of helping ourselves and others heal, how beautiful is that?


MBY has been practicing yoga for 20 years and guiding classes for 13 years now. Her dedication to her self practice has made her teaching life rich with encounters from students & teachers that ride on the same wave, whether they’re just beginning or are further along on their journey.

MichelleBartoloYoga’s semi private (maximum 8 students) 200hr KriyaAsana Teacher Training course provides you with an in depth training to connect to the teacher in you, while releasing blockages and baggage in the body which we’ve carried around for years.

MBY will lead you into your own self practice through her teacher training which is where you’re authentic voice will shine through to bring you all the students who need what you are practicing.

MBY’s teacher training will teach you more than how to teach yoga. With a strong intention on personal improvement, psychological flexibility, opening up to allow energy to move through you this course is designed not only to provide students with tools to share the wisdom of yoga with others, yet also to look at their own lives from a spiritual perspective. Each training holds a unique energy, created from like minded souls.

As we train & embody this approach, we open up to the wisdom and the teacher that is already within us all. We dance, we chant, we sing. We find community with like-minded people and we embrace the stillness within ourselves. We call on our intuition for the answers and we speak from spirit to spirit.

We dive deep into the experience, free from unnecessary distractions and allow our authentic connection to emerge.

Each day carries an intention, a spiritual lesson of the day, that we each set for ourselves along with the efforts that need to be made to achieve it. We begin each class with a meditation, followed by a 90 minute kriyaasana practice.

Then we dip into learning yogic theory, yogic practice & healing through group discussions. During this time we cover the fundamentals of yogic living, including yogic diet, anatomy, meditation, cleansing practices, pranayama, Ayurveda and sharing all the things in our lives we’d no longer like to carry around.

Our trainings also open up to include other methods of healing, calling on not just the physical and mental elements but also the more subtle forms such as energy healing.

We share the Art of Teaching and the Art of Touch, during which students learn to teach a segment of a class in every class we share. We will include Kundalini Kriyas to unravel any blockages in our roots so our serpent energy can rise; a Slow Flow which is a slow, meditative, practice followed by Vinyasa Flow, a more intense, breath-synchronized flow. We also share the fundamentals of intelligent sequencing and explore alignment and adjustment of poses in depth. Each class will end with meditation & kirtan (chanting).
