Michael has been practicing yoga since 2005. Incredibly talented and dedicated teachers aided Michael in his yoga journey; but he feels particularly fortunate to have received his 200-hour certification from Diana Vitantonio and Soul Activists in 2012. Michael then completed a 200-hour course with Sandy Gross, Baptiste assisting training, and other continuing education courses.
Sharing yoga with others is a gift for which Michael is humbled and grateful. In his class, you will be challenged and supported in both mind and body, and encouraged to inquire and explore the limits of your practice. Michael’s calming voice will guide and challenge you through thoughtful vinyasa sequences reinforced by breath & alignment cues and supportive assists.
Michael’s goal is to enable each student to mature his or her practice to that place where yoga transcends the studio and permeates life: a life with a calm mind, a full heart and a free spirit. He believes that the most important yoga practice is what we do with the 23 hours of the day we are not on our mats. When not practicing yoga, you can find Michael in his workshop building furniture or off riding something on two wheels.
