Michelle Cross – My Story
Welcome, I’m Michelle Cross!
Stories are the oldest form of healing art that exist, and I am an evocative storyteller sharing the myths and metaphors of the Goddess tradition of Tantra and Yoga. I weave them into many of my teachings to help you potentially transform the story you tell yourself. So here I am, sharing my story,
I am known as a Yogini, a Tantrika, a Priestess and Moon Lover. My commitment and vision is to truly support and nurture women, to encourage them to step into their power as a divine feminine being and connect to their unique voice in the world. Which sadly over the 100’s/1000’s of years has been suppressed. Now in the new paradigm, there is a feminine rising.
Through Yoga, Tantra, Sacred Touch of Therapies, Coaching, Teaching and Mentoring I turn the fears, doubts or shame women have about their body’s, their sexuality or sensuality and unite them all in the spirituality of life. This union or coming together becomes the medicine for healing. I marry science with mysticism of Ancient Tantra and Neo Tantra, where the holy and the erotic meet. I share in a down to earth way, with every day practices and rituals to awaken you to authentic purpose and passion and live your Soul’s calling.
I share practices that work and make you feel amazing
- on or off the yoga mat,
- in your body
- in the bedroom,
- or in the office.
- and definitely within relationships!
I offer you practices that I know work, because I have been using them for nearly 30 years. and I discovered in the process that nothing is separate. That’s why I help you to heal your root beliefs about yourself, your body, your emotions and sexuality.
Freud, the famous psychologist on sexuality said ” when we neglect unexpressed emotions, they will come forth in uglier ways”. Yes this is strong, yet how many women have unexpressed emotions because we have been taught we are ‘too emotional’ ‘too needy’ ‘too impulsive’ ‘too changeable’ or to ‘be quiet’.
What I love about women are they are all of these and that is ok! Otherwise you are told to fit into a box of what society expects. What I teach is outside of the box, the Divine Feminine is definitely out of the box that the patriarchy built.
I give you potent tools to give your energy, confidence and transform.
I primarily work with women who want more confidence, fun, freedom, aliveness, passion and the erotic within a spiritual path.
Maybe that’s you, or maybe you don’t know what you want, but you are searching for something or someone; whatever that something is, right? I help you to come home to you as a woman, and it’s been a long time since women have truly been home.

Now here’s the longer version of how I got to where I am. I was born in UK, yet now call the Caribbean island Barbados home since 2014. Barbados is my sanctuary, sacred base that allows me to work internationally, as a coach and teacher of Tantra and Yoga. I’m a dedicated teacher of Vinyasa Flow Tantra Yoga, a healer/massage bodyworker, a Tantra and Relationship Coach with nearly 30 years of experience in the field. I am also one of the very few Certified Isadora Tantra Coach™ by the late Psalm Isadora.
I teach powerful practices through Yoga, Tantra and Bodywork of Sacred Touch that help you tap into your fullest potential and turn your traumas into triumphs, through my “Awaken your Senses” programs.
I view every woman as a Goddess, the highest practice in Tantra is to see everyone as Divine, so if Goddess doesn’t land how about Queen.
I actively assists women on the quest for personal empowerment, to own their stories and step into their feminine energy.
It wasn’t always like this for me.
Growing up, I was a shy introvert and was taught that ‘children should be seen and not heard’ – the effects of which lasted well into my adulthood. Numbing that forced silence, in addition to the trauma of my first sexual experience – which occurred against my will – I turned to work as a method of coping. Immersed in the damaging trope of the strong independent woman, running my own business, exhausted and overworked, I was wholly unprepared for the change that the year 2009 had in store for me.
That year, I suffered a debilitating case of food poisoning, which caused my whole body to misalign, left me with auto-immune disorder of arthritis and plantar fasciitis. I was not able to walk or move without experiencing intense pain. I was this tight bud.
I interpreted this pivotal time in my life as the universe telling me to stop and slow down, and seek a new path. The new path I chose was the path of Feminine Tantra Practices. I also met my now husband the same year I started studying Tantra. Both have transformed my life. And the passion I have for both became my purpose to share with others.
In a rare but necessary move, I had to turn to someone for help: my mother. Doing so taught me not only how to surrender, but how to receive. This also healed my relationship with my mother. As I explored Tantra, which honours the Goddess or Ma, meaning the Mother you can see the relationship between my spiritual practices and healing the relationship with my own mother.
Tantra gave me the keys to dive deeper within myself to unlock the intimacy blocks I had and didn’t even realise. Through the practice I cultivated profound self-love and discovered that, which I was looking for outside of myself, was within me all the time, the intimacy of Tantra Yoga gave me the keys to embody everything within me = into-me-i-see.
Then my husband also unlocked the door to my sensuality and sexuality through trust and commitment. The intimacy of Divine Union is the highest practice I teach. This Divine Union is within you as well as with a partner if you have one.
This bring me to you

I teach powerful feminine Tantra Methods that give you energy, boost your confidence and self-esteem, deepen connection and intimacy, light up your sexiness and turn on your femininity.

I promise you can have it all, vibrant energy, success, all the pleasure you want, deeper connection and intimacy and ecstatic sex, and it won’t take you nearly 30 years like me!
I am happy and blessed to say for the last 10 years I’ve been working in women’s empowerment through Yoga and Tantra, which began 30 years ago as a healer and massage therapist. I’ve taught and inspired 1000’s and 1000’s of women, who are on a spiritual path or have a sense there’s something more. There definitely is. I’d love to show you..
I’ve studied with the most amazing teachers around the world, Sianna Sherman, Shiva Rea, Chameli Ardagh, Psalm Isadora, Dawn Cartwright, William Thomas, Yogesh Raje, Lisa Schrader. Having travelled to India since 2006, I have been initiated into a Shakti Lineage of Tantra that I love. I am so grateful and humbly bow down to all of them for lighting a torch for me to be a beacon for you. And to all the people I teach or cross paths with also are teaching me in so many ways, unconsciously.
