I have found healing in my life from the benefits of Yoga and Massage Therapy. After running for several years I started to develop a sciatic nerve and piriformis issue that made it almost impossible to run. Through a dedicated yoga practice and receiving massage therapy every two weeks I have been able to start running again in small distances. I am grateful for the healing that I have received from yoga and massage on all levels of mind, body, and spirit. I find great joy and satisfaction from providing the same service to my clients and friends as well as a space of peace, greater awareness, and the opportunities for people in our community to create healing.
My Personal Mission:
Through divinity and inspiration I empower all to create balance, transformation, healing and spiritual peace.
Co Owner/Studio Manager
I have enjoyed working in customer service for 8 years and being in management for 6. I love working with people, so the communication I get to have and the relationships I build every day with our clients and students is what makes me love my job.
I feel very fortunate to be able to work with my mom who is not only my partner at work but one of my best friends.
When I am not at the studio I am with my friends or family hiking, snowshoeing, rock climbing, traveling and just being adventurous!
I know that when you step into Cradle Your Soul you will feel comfortable, accepted and peace.
Love and Light to all.
I work at Cradle Your Soul to enrich my life physically, mentally and, spiritually. I also hope to enrich the lives of the clients while working here. I have worked in different types of customer service for over 13 years, and have always loved interacting with people. I have practiced yoga on and off for over 10 years. I am compassionate and full of love for all living things. I am a stay at home wife and dog mom to my smile-makers: my amazing husband, and my two wonderful Pomeranians. In my free time, my favorite things are to bake and cook for all the people I love and adore.

I am a high school student and I’ve just started my first job at Cradle Your Soul. I have previously volunteered at the Aquarium and the best part of it was meeting all the different types of people. At Cradle Your Soul I am able to meet new people, create new connections, and enhance my life interactively. And although I am naturally a little reserved, working here has helped me grow out of my comfort zone in a non-pressured and relaxing way. My friends would describe me as an ecstatic person that’s filled with laughter, and I’d like to think that as true. I love music and in my free time I love to play piano, go out with my friends and play volleyball with my team, whom I see as my second family.
I completed my 200RYT Training in 2014 at SLCC which lead to my interest in massage therapy. I wanted to learn more about the body and anatomy so that's what I did! I completed the Master Bodyworker program at UCMT which gives me over 900 hours of massage education. Using my muscles to help heal other people's muscles is the most fulfilling thing I do each day. In conjuncture with yoga, I have all the tools I need to help myself and my clients with all of our preventative care.
I also teach at the studio Tuesday nights.
I graduated massage in 2009. Started practicing massage in February 2010. I critique every session to the clients preference that they are looking for that day. I do a range of modalities including, deep tissue, trigger point, pregnancy, and Swedish. I have now been practicing for 7 years. My favorite part about massage is having a client walk out saying the pain is gone thank you. Book with me, and I will do my best to help you become pain-free.
I graduated in 2006 from the Alexander School of Natural Therapeutics in Tacoma, Washington. A month later, I began my career working for a chiropractor where I learned many continuing education courses with certifications in structural and medical massage. My specialty is deep tissue with and emphasis on neck and psoas.
I love helping people remove their pain and regain their zest for life. With 12 years of experience, I can help you heal.

I became a Massage Therapist because of my love for massage. I started getting body work while I was still in high school, and I realized how much it decreased my stress and made me feel better. It wasn’t until years later after I had my second child that I realized I wanted to go to school for massage therapy. I graduated from UCMT in 2013, and quickly got a job doing what I love and I’ve been working consistently ever since! I am a very compassionate and sympathetic person and I love helping people feel better. When I’m not working I am spending time with my world; my husband of 15 years and my two kids. I love animals, being outdoors, the beach, traveling, and eating delicious food.
Michelle has a great love for the outdoors and for helping people. She quickly realized the benefits of massage therapy after seeing first hand the effects it can have on pain and stress. Michelle graduated from Utah College of Massage Therapy and has knowledge in multiple modalities including Swedish, deep tissue, injury, trigger point, and many more. When she’s not working, Michelle enjoys camping, snowboarding, off-roading, and being with family. She has been happily married since 2014 and has three dogs and a cat.
I grew up experiencing the benefits of massage therapy and loved every second of it. I went through a 200 hr yoga teacher training in 2016 and love seeing the benefits that yoga brings to my students. I graduated from Cortiva Institute of Massage Therapy and love being able to serve people through massage. I specialize in deep tissue, trigger point therapy, and cranial sacral therapy. I love doing specific work to help clients transition through injury. Through personal experience I know that massage can help with stress management, anxiety, and sleep disorders. I approach every massage with compassion, service, and healing in mind. Working with the body to heal the individual is my goal as a licensed massage therapist and yoga teacher.
Creating holistic healing for my clients is what drew me to massage therapy, yoga and Ayurveda. As a Myotherapy Massage College graduate and licensed massage therapist I use many modalities including Thai Massage, Swedish, Injury Recovery and Reflexology to assist the body in healing itself. I am a 500 hour trained yoga instructor teaching for the past decade power flow, vinyasa, restorative and gentle beginner yoga. Finally, as an Ayurvedic Health Counselor I am able to guide lifestyle changes by assisting you in aligning your choices and habits with nature and your dosha to give lasting wellness. Combining the healing that comes with the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, yoga and massage your body and soul are in the best environment for lasting healing.

I am the happiest when helping others and learning. I have always been intrigued with how our body systems compliment and support each other in the human body and the part nutrition plays in and keeping our bodies healthy. They are an amazing gift. The therapeutic and physical benefits of massage assist our bodies in healing and being whole. Along with Massage, I am a licensed Foot Zone Practitioner since 2013. I feel Foot Zoning and Massage are a great combination. Besides a general relaxation massage, I love working on the back and neck as well as using various types of massage to help the body release and heal. I enjoy Thai massage, Lymph drainage, and acupressure and like to incorporate them into my massages.

Her yoga path started 15 years ago, while working at Valley Mental Health.

It was here that she fully learned to let go of judgement and allow everyone to have their own experience. During this time she certified as a Yoga instructor. It was beautiful watching the women progress in yoga as their bodies cleared out the toxins of drugs and trauma. She witnessed the healing power of yoga for the mind and the body.
Sallie finds teaching Yoga an inspiring and creative outlet. She loves digging deep into the soul and helping others connect with who they really are. Her class will help you find more joy in your journey.
My yoga journey began over 10 years ago in Geneva, Switzerland, while I was working for the World Health Organization, when a friend and colleague invited me to join a yoga class she was teaching during lunch. I was hooked! I knew this was what my body needed and my body loved it!
A few years into practicing, I started toying with the idea of becoming certified to be a yoga teacher. Five years later, and half a world away, it finally happened, while I was living in Colombia.
In 2012 I certified as a Holistic Health Coach through IIN, which encompassed everything I believed about health and wellness needing to be integrated through the emotional, energetic, spiritual and physical aspects of our being. Since then, I have continued to study and learn many tools that a I now include in my physical, mental, and emotional wellness toolbox, including; The Emotional Journey, Louise Hay's Heal your Life, Reiki, IDEAL Life Innergy and The Child Validation Process, as well as Yoga.
I am thrilled to be teaching yoga once again and look forward to opportunities to share many of the things I have learned along the way, and most particularly to help others succeed in their desire for total health and wellness.
