“Michael’s passion is yoga, first and foremost.  And yet his expansive love for this philosophy opens a world that invites in astrology, the environment, the earth, trees, sun, literature and his concern for humanity.  It is a privilege to practice with someone whose integrity and enthusiasm for yoga is deliciously infectious."


-R. Schwalbe, PhD Psychotherapist
