ABOUT MICHELLE MARIE
We all have a unique set of life experiences to draw from when we relate to others.
Here are some things you might want to know about me.
One of my favorite things in the world is speaking for groups of people. There’s nothing like the feeling of coming together and connecting with a purpose. To me, speaking is a form of emergent creativity. Daily preparation keeps you ready and relevant, while over-planning kills magic. Being present with people and holding space for my audience’s experience is the foundation of my life’s work.
What I love most about coaching is applying the fundamental truth that no outside program or plan can give you your answers. You have access to everything you need to create the life you want. As a coach, it’s my job to hold space for group and individual clients. Working with people to support them in this way is invigorating, fun, and sometimes very intense. It’s mutually rewarding when we truly show up and do this work.
I'm the CEO and owner of MMB Music and Teaching With Orff. We import and distribute musical instruments from Studio 49, Munich’s world-famous Orff instrument factory. We also created a global tribe of music educators who come together to learn and grow as professionals. We create online learning courses to support them as artists, teachers, and humans—professional development made personal. We love music teachers and support them as they teach young musical learners.
There’s nothing like exploring the mind-body connection to find your truth. Most days, I practice this in the gym with my trainer. I also seek truth by walking and practicing yoga. I’ve taught over 600 indoor cycling classes, helping others experience their true selves through transformational movement. I'm a certified Mind Body Eating Coach, trained by the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. When it comes to your health and wellbeing, your body has amazing messages waiting for you.
