Michelle Bernard's paintings have been exhibited in the Musea Intentional Creativity Museum. Her clay works have been displayed and sold in various art shows and exhibitions in New York City.
Michelle currently supports humans who think it's groovy to be strong, spirited, and wild with personal fitness training as well as J.A.M. Sessions (Journal Art & Movement)
and WiLD journaling programs.
Born in Iowa, she lived in the cities of her dreams; Chicago, Los Angeles, Osaka, Japan, and Manhattan; pursuing stages and wellness, performing as a singer and poet as well as teaching fitness and yoga programs to children, adults, and seniors.
She was awarded a NYC teaching fellowship for her Master's degree in Education and established the Theatre Arts department at 754X, a high school in the Bronx for students with special needs.
She also developed the curriculum for Creative Movement for Enlightened Minds and Stand in Your Light, her yoga and drama youth programs, respectively, for CUNY in the Heights in Manhattan.
Her devotional yoga curriculum at Amsterdam Day Program in Manhattan used chair dancing, hatha yoga, and active imagination to help seniors breathe deeper, move with joy, and recall satisfying memories.
