Mike was born and raised in Colorado. Having been a gymnast for much of his young life, investigating the mind-body connection has long been a passion. Yoga cemented a place in Mike's life initially as a way to manage stress, but grew into a much deeper exploration of the human experience. Mike hopes to inspire this same curiosity for life in others.
Mike completed his 200 hour Yoga Alliance certification under the guidance of Francesca Asumah, is in the process of receiving his 500 hour certification, and has also trained with Julia Planine-Troiani, Deanna Ainsworth, Rebekah Rivera, Brit Middleton, Cornelius Jones Jr., and Jonatan Silva, among others.
Mike A instructs the following:
26 & 2 -1hr
This class is a 60 minute set sequence of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises. There are 2 sets of the standing series and 1 set of the floor series. Class is composed of a standing series followed by a floor series where each posture is done twice. Through discipline and structure, this class allows students to gain strength, flexibility and balance. Conducted without music, 26 & 2 assists in developing the concentration needed for meditation and proper alignment.
