Yoga expert Michelle Lou Lan shows us how to embrace a healthy sense of self in this digital age. Her witty yet vulnerable expression of personal insecurities and journey to empowerment will help you to connect with social media in a new way. Much like how she engages in a yoga pose, step by step, Michelle conveys that in order to connect healthily with social media, it’s important to first separate.
Michelle Lou Lan is the Founder and President of MeshYoga, a celebrated yoga practice and clothing line. She is an instructor, an innovator, an entrepreneur, and a passionate yogi. Michelle is also recognized as a social media influencer, with a strong presence and devoted following on Instagram.
With over twelve years of experience, Michelle is highly regarded as a trailblazer in the practice of yoga. She has taught all over the world and studied with many of the great masters. Her clients have included renowned celebrities and decorated Olympians. She currently operates MeshYoga out of New York, Los Angeles, and Maui.
With her background as a professional dancer, Michelle believes in a practice focused on alignment and expressive body movement, breaking down each yoga pose to the basics and merging different styles and techniques. With each class, she blends alternative body expressions into her routines, incorporating elements of pilates, cycling, boxing, strength training, and more. She is always reinventing, and always with a focus on inclusivity for all.
Michelle thinks differently and encourages her students to do the same. As someone who splits her time between nature in the jungle and the creative hustle-and-bustle of the city, she brings her spirit of fun and adventure to each class. With Michelle Lou Lan and MeshYoga, you can always expect something “a bit different.”
