About the instructor: 

While living in New York City, Michael was dragged into his first yoga class against his will. His perspective shifted, though, during this first class and he realized he had found a home. It was the first time he had experienced quiet in the midst of the hectic, whirling, city environment. Michael believes that this sense of calm is our natural state and the practices of yoga can and do take us there.

Michael is a Professional Level 500-hr Kripalu Yoga Teacher. He received his 200-hr teaching certification from Yoga to the People in NYC and is a Registered Yoga Teacher under Yoga Alliance. Michael teaches private clients, group classes, teacher trainings and workshops across the DC Metro Area. He draws on his experience in this range of modalities, particularly the Alexander Technique, to broaden and deepen the yoga experience for his students.

*Self-Care

Learning to identify one’s individual needs is one of the key benefits gained through the practice of yoga. Self-care practices like yoga and meditation increase our ability to be present and become more aware of our mind, body and emotions. By strengthening this skill, it becomes easier to identify how to be kind to yourself and address your own needs. 

This year, which gift can you both give and receive yourself?
