Michele Seminara studied creative writing and Australian and English literature at The University of Sydney, winning several university writing competitions and publishing some short stories – writing was her passion and, she thought, her destiny.
After dropping out of a postgraduate law degree she spent the next few years working and travelling throughout Europe, Asia, and particularly India, which she loved and where she spent a year. It was here that she became interested in yoga and she later trained to become a yoga, Buddhist and meditation teacher. She has been practicing yoga and meditation for over twenty years, and teaching it for nearly fifteen (this makes her feel much younger than it makes her sound!)
She currently lives in Sydney with her husband and three children, and has a passion for poetry.
