Michelle C Dorney

Meet Michelle Dorney. Michelle’s love for Holistic Health and integrative fitness inspired her to choose this path as a career. While earning her Degree in Nutrition, Michelle completed multiple fitness certifications, including AFAA Group X, AFAA Small Group Training, Barre Above by Leslie Bender, BI Barre, and SCW Tabata Bootcamp. Michelle’s love for healing the body with whole foods led her to attain an IIN Holistic Health Coaching Certificate.

Fast forward to 2017, she was introduced to the Pilates Reformer and instantly fell in love. Naturally, she went through the teacher training for Pilates Mat & Reformer. Michelle currently teaches Pilates Mat, Pilates Reformer and Barre classes while also working as a Holistic Health & Wellness Coach.

She was born and raised Boston and currently resides in Laguna Beach. Although, their family and roots mean everything to them, her boyfriend now-husband & her decided to take a leap of faith. As an officer in the Marine Corps, her husband Denis was given the opportunity to take orders in California. He proposed, she said yes and off they went! They moved across the country, landing in sunny South Orange County. They are enjoying every minute of their new adventure as newlyweds in their new home of Laguna Beach with their two black labs, Maddie and Nala.
