A recreational cyclist and group-exercise aficionado, Michelle started attending AntiGravity classes in 2012 and became certified as an instructor in early 2014. Her experience is proof that AntiGravity can be accessible - and downright addictive - for anyone, even people who were cringe-worthy in childhood dance recitals and shaky on the balance beam. Through her classes, she aims to blend fitness, deep stretching and relaxation, offering a little bit of something for students of all sorts.
When she's not hanging upside-down, Michelle is a business reporter for The Plain Dealer.

Samantha started flying high with Antigravity Yoga when she was searching for a workout that allowed her to recover from a shoulder injury, but also provided a challenge for the rest of her body. She was surprised to discover Antigravity is more than a workout. Overcoming fears, learning to trust herself, striving for excellence instead of perfection, increasing confidence and self-awareness extended into her personal life.
After a few years of having fun in the hammock as a student, Samantha decided it was time to begin sharing this wonderful technique with others. Samantha, like so many of us, sits at a desk all day. Her 9-5 and love of cycling has made her truly understand the importance of maintaining flexibility through the hips and spine for your overall well-being. She believes the zero compression inversions and hip opener sequences are some of the most beneficial moves in Antigravity.
