Michelle Spahn was born in Denver, Colorado and as a child she was always full of energy and had an immense love for nature and animals. Her brother Michael and her were lucky to grow up on a lake, where she played in the water and learned about its inhabitants and surrounding nature. She still loves boating, wake boarding and being anywhere in the water.
After graduating high school, she attended Metropolitan State College of Denver for Environmental Science and in 2001 took a yoga class counting towards a physical elective. This is where she fell in love with yoga and knew that it would be a part of her life forever.
In 2007, she met her future husband, James, and found someone that was ready to move away from the Colorado snow and into Florida sunshine. They moved to Key Largo and explored the reefs for 5 years before finding Cocoa Beach as there home. Her husband is a Titusville firefighter and they now own a home in Cape Canaveral.
Michelle has wore many hats, including Aquarist for Bass Pro Shops, Divemaster, Animal Control Officer, Veterinary Technician, Kayak guide and environmental tourism. She’s always eager to learn more and recently graduated yoga teacher training with Infinity Yoga. This experience has been one of her favorites, guiding her growth and happiness through the power of yoga.

Michele has been teaching over a decade, and has been practicing for about 15 years. She was introduced to the Ashtanga style of yoga and from that point on she became intrigued in all that yoga embraced. " I will never forget how I felt after my first yoga class! It was surreal". Since then she has embarked in many different styles and was able to learn under great teacher. She taught in Portland Oregon for 5 years and is now sharing her love of yoga in Florida. The practice of yoga has taught Michele of love, peace, and self care. Her passion allows her to flourish as a teacher and a student.

Mary Jayne Waddell “MJ” – Yoga Teacher* and Creative Founder of SHARE YOGA
My practice began in 1996 when one day in the gym I decided to take an “easy little stretch class” or so I thought! At the end of that class I walked out with such a feeling of peace and clarity. I knew I had found a new way to stay physically AND emotionally fit in mind, body, and spirit. With a professional career in musical theatre and dance, yoga kept me flexible, balanced, and calm both onstage and off. Eleven years later my practice led me to YogaWorks where I completed 200 hours of teacher training. In 2009 I completed 500 hours of therapeutic training at Golden Heart Yoga. My yoga influences and trainings have been many. I’ve had the extraordinary gift of taking classes and trainings all over North America with some of the best teachers. The fascination and love for Yoga continues as I teach, train and learn from my students both privately and in group classes. My classes are safe, challenging, humorous, and suitable for all levels. ( Some may say I kick their ass! I say I empower whatever part of their anatomy/spirit/ass needs it!) Emphasis is on proper alignment and breath work and discovering how strong you are when body, mind and spirit work together. It’s such a privilege to experience and watch peoples lives changing....including mine! Joining Stephanie and tribe at Infinity is a blessing. We both LOVE what Yoga continues to bless us with!
