Get To Know Michael
Favorite Music Artist or Band: The most difficult question ever for someone who collects music. So no, I won’t answer. However I am presently jamming to Emeli Sande, Andrea Bocelli, Lindsey Abudei, RY X and Alicia Keys.
Favorite Yoga Pose: I struggled a lot with Handstand, so yeah it has become my default pose.
On Weekends You Can Be Found: Surfing at the beach, taking a trip, attending non-conventional events, or just chilling at home.
Favorite Movie of All Time: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
Favorite TV Show: Presently – Game of Thrones; Of all time – LOST.
Favorite Time to Get Your Practice In: Early mornings or late evenings.
Dream Vacation: I suffer from wanderlust. Right now I am dying to go to Bali.
Favorite Post Yoga Meal: Water. I keep it simple.
How Did You Get Into Yoga: I was on a weight loss journey so I got Tony Horton’s P90X DVD and it had this yoga segment. It fascinated me that the guy in the video could transition from crow to handstand so I started practicing just to at least master crow for a picture, and then I got dragged in.
What Was Your First Class Like: Breath-taking in all ramifications.
A Quote You Love: If you want a place in the sun, you’ve got to put up with a few blisters. – Pauline Phillips

Your Personal Mantra Is… Spend money on experiences not things.
What’s Your Favorite Part About Breathe: So far it’s been the welcoming vibe the space offers from the Breathe wall art to the fresh and earthy scent right to the smiling faces.
