Hello! My name is Michelle Payne, founder of Yoga Koncepts. I am a yoga teacher and a yogi and consider myself a student too, because after all, learning is life-long!

A bit about me… I grew up in Etobicoke with summers in Orangeville. I lived my adult life in Mississauga, and that is where I discovered yoga in 2012 at the Power Yoga Canada studio. I firmly believe that what you need most in life will present itself to you, and that is what yoga did for me. I really connected to yoga. After moving to Alliston in 2017, I settled in at the studio in town. Happy to be back on my mat, after a few months I realized that leading others in yoga was a serious interest for me. I knew I could do it, so I signed up for yoga teacher training and completed my 200 hour YTT at the studio. I also completed the Baptiste Power Yoga Teacher Course. Baptiste yoga is to awaken and empower all human beings to live life fully and in potentia—to discover one’s full potential.

Since I had been teaching at the studio in town, I was inspired by the owner to share my passion for teaching, to embrace this opportunity to grow and to help you discover your potential. I am truly honoured each day to lead class and share yoga with everyone who comes thru my door. I hope to see you on your mat!
