Owner/Lead Retreat Host

Michele Benton

Michele is an International Yoga Teacher and Travel Host who has been planning and hosting life-changing retreats and adventures for more than 6 years. She has also previously planned executive and VIP travel and off-site meetings for 14 years in the food service sales industry. She brings a fun and innovative approach to travel and training utilizing energetic videos, easy-to-follow written guides, and sample downloads to the 'Plan a Successful Retreat in 7 Steps' course. After being asked by people in the yoga and travel communities to help them with retreat planning, Michele took the leap into online course creation and has introduced the same successful template that she personally uses to help as many people as possible while still being able to travel and host her own incredible worldwide trips. Michele has logged thousands of hours of professional experience teaching yoga, mediation, paddleboard skills, and mentoring small business owners from all over. “When I was young I would read through my grandma's world atlas like it was a storybook, imagining what it would be like to visit far off places. I have combined my corporate background and wanderlust to create a business model that fulfills me creatively and spiritually as well as monetarily. I happily/eagerly/sincerely want to encourage you to share your superpowers and knowledge using the experience that I have gained over the past several years.” - Michele Benton, Om Sunshine Yoga
