Michelle Fury caught the yoga bug in 1992. It had such an impact on her life that she started saying, "Yoga is my therapy." Several yoga certifications and a Masters Degree in Contemplative Psychotherapy later, Michelle is now a yoga therapist at Children's Hospital Colorado. She holds her Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) status through the State of Colorado. She has a specialty in trauma therapy, as well as extensive training and experience using mindfulness-based therapy models such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT). She has been involved in several yoga research projects. Her work with children in the field of yoga therapy as a psychotherapeutic intervention has been featured in a number of local and national publications including Yoga Journal, the Wall Street Journal, and Social Work Today. She wrote a feature article for the Spring 2013 issue of Yoga Therapy Today.
