Following Your Bliss with Michelle Gross

As the full-time director of an international development non-profit, Michelle Gross felt she couldn’t fit the Yoga Health Coaching program into her busy traveling schedule. But that all changed when she watched a Masterclass by Cate, and experienced the urgency of stepping into her zone of genius.

Armed with a strong “why” and supported by the YHC community, Michelle has been able to fill and run her pilot successfully in a few months, despite the fact she didn’t have an established wellness business.

Michelle is focused on getting her members to overcome social conditioning and achieving beauty from the inside out. Listen to the podcast to learn more about how Michelle is leading a culturally diverse group, her ambition to have a spanish speaking course and overcoming self-doubt.
