About Michelle Johnson

I am an author, yoga teacher, social justice activist, licensed clinical social worker, and Dismantling Racism trainer. I approach my life and work from a place of empowerment, embodiment, and integration. With a deep understanding of trauma and the impact that it has on the mind, body, spirit and heart, much of my work focuses on helping people better understand how power and privilege operate in their life. I explore how privilege, power and oppression affects the physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and energy body.
