Michael awakened to the practice of embodied movement in 2008. After years of studying to be an Engineer, he became acutely aware of the damage done while sitting in a chair. His determination to reverse the physical path he was on softened into a passion for the practice of yoga. In 2014, he trained with Shiva Rea in the art of Prana Vinyasa Flow ™.
His intention is to explore HOW we move as opposed to WHERE we move our bodies within the confines of our own evolutionary edge. His classes are slow and strong to decouple the mind from unconscious movement patterns. This instills an awareness and appreciation for each of our own unique kinetic dynamics. Freedom of movement is encouraged as we explore this connection with all of humanity.
