Mike's yoga journey began 6 years ago when he was encouraged by a good friend to try it out. After a couple of classes, he was hooked -- and shocked -- at how physically and mentally challenging the practice was. Mike suffered from a dislocated shoulder for nearly 5 years. He was told he would never have full range of movement ever again. After his first year of a dedicated yoga practice, his shoulders were stronger than they had ever been before. Mike believes that yoga is a great way to build functional strength in the body - not to mention a healthy way to eliminate stress and focus the mind. After completing CorePower's teacher training, Mike started teaching right away. His class is physically challenging with an emphasis on breath and fun!
