Introduction

Author of The Wheel of Healing with Ayurveda: An Easy Guide to a Healthy Lifestyle,
Chopra Center Vedic Master and Founder of The Ayurvedic Path, Inc.

Founder, Michelle Fondin, first studied yoga in 1989 with yoga master, Lee Ann Louis-Prescott. In addition to yoga, she studied Russian ballet with Iacob Lascu, continued her ballet study at the University of Michigan and pursued ballet as a hobby in various ballet schools. She has also studied modern and African dance. In the early 90s, Michelle started her career as an Aerobics Instructor and Personal Trainer. After graduating from the University of Michigan in 1995 with a BA in Honors French, she continued to earn a teaching certificate of secondary education through George Mason University. After teaching middle and high school French and Spanish for several years, Michelle made the decision to go back to her true passion of health, fitness and wellness.

In fall 2007, Michelle began studying with Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. David Simon and the founder and president of the American Yoga Academy, Claire Diab at the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, California. In May 2008, Michelle became certified in the Perfect Health Ayurvedic Lifestyle Program as an educator. She earned her yoga certification through the Chopra Center's 300-hour Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga Teacher Training Program; which complies with the Yoga Alliance 200-hour RYT guidelines. In November 2009, Michelle earned her certificate in Primordial Sound Meditation instruction and became a Chopra Center Vedic Master. Michelle is certified in CPR, AED and First Aid through the American Red Cross.

In July 2008, Michelle founded The Ayurvedic Path, Inc, a company that is committed to providing services and products, which enhance the wellbeing of its clients and the environment.
