stories & testimonials

Michelle Olson is a member of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in First Nation (Yukon) and the Artistic Director of Raven Spirit Dance and instructor at Langara College’s Studio 58 Acting Program.
Her work as a performer and creator embraces the arenas of dance, choreography, theatre, opera, dance education and community arts. Her current retraining goals are to take a Yin Yoga training program from Semperviva Yoga to compliment her 200hr Yoga Teacher training, received 4 years ago with the support of DTRC’s retraining grant. This program will support Michelle as she seeks new knowledge about the philosophy and practice of yoga, as well as empowering her efforts to physically and mentally explore physiology and anatomy.

This training in yoga has grounded Michelle in her movement knowledge and has been an instrumental part of her community and college movement classes.
