If you want authentic yoga that focuses on the mind-body-breath connection and provides personal growth lessons taught by a highly experienced instructor who lives his life based on his own teachings, this is where you need to be. — Scott D.
Michael’s warmth, kindness, and depth of knowledge are beyond compare. Not only have I gained physical strength and flexibility through his classes, but I have been challenged to examine my thoughts and actions through the practice, which is far more than poses alone. — Kathreen R.
The workshop instructor was fabulous. He gave us so much knowledge and it was offered in a simplistic way. — Jessica C.
