About The Teacher
About Michael Hoyer and Ananda Expeditions
Michael teaches strong and mindful Vinyasa practices that blend intelligent sequencing, precise alignment cues, and accessible contemplative themes. Most importantly, she focuses on meeting the specific desires and needs of her students — whether that entails introducing the basics of the practice to those who are new to yoga, or supporting more experienced practitioners in their process of continual growth and discovery.
Expect to be warmly welcomed and physically challenged, to receive thoughtful (not forceful) manual adjustments, to experience a deeply restorative savasana at the practice’s end, and to leave your mat feeling both relaxed and invigorated.
Having completed 500 hours of Vinyasa yoga teacher training with her two primary teachers, Jason Crandell and Stephanie Snyder, Michael also holds a PhD in Comparative Literature from Stanford University and is the founder of and head guide for Ananda Expeditions, an “inspired adventure travel” company that designs custom itineraries and small-group trips.
