About RayAn Michaels


I believe this life is meant to be lived, mindful and courageous. One of the beautiful things about exploring the body / working with the body is the ever-changing, ever-growing, true evolution the body holds. It is an honor, a gift to be able to explore the depths of one's mind and body, and I truly feel so fortunate to involve my life around movement and growth. People inspire me every day to continue my path in teaching and assisting in the ability to have one heal their own selves.
I have grown up in movement, studying ballet-jazz-modern my whole life. It is where and how I learned to express myself, my truest form of therapy and self-growth. From here came the journey into Gyrotonic®, Pilates and Neuromuscular Massage Therapy. I grew a deep passion and fascination for anatomy and the biomechanics of the body. I feel the body tells you exactly what it needs, you just have to listen. I chose this line of work, and I feel this line of work chose me. I believe that it is through your body that you realize that you are a spark of divinity.


Why I love To Teach: I love to see the “ah-ha” moment in my clients mind and body as well as encompass a new journey every time we work. I love to challenge my clients and assist them in reaching far beyond their initial goals.


My Teaching Style: My style is hands on, creative and customized to specific needs of my clients. I incorporate breath and imagery, and work with intention and flow. I am passionate for anatomy so I tend to dive in on muscles and connections within the body.
