Michael is a full-time devotee at the Hare Krishna temple of Culture and Spirituality in Cape Town and the resident Yoga teacher.
He walked into his first yoga class in 2009 and fell in love with the practice and with his teacher Estralita. A few weeks before she left her body in 2014, after a 2½ year fight against cancer, she expressed her wish that he become a Yoga Teacher and continue her legacy. According to her last wishes he did his Yoga Teacher Training course with Anne and Martin Combrinck at the ASEI in Somerset West, SA.
He brings a blend of traditional Hatha and Vinyasa Flow into his classes with a focus on connecting to the divine.
Michael spent some time in Thailand practicing Yoga in various beautiful places while studying to become a qualified Thai 'Yoga' Massage therapist.
"Our bodies are just vehicles for the soul. Maintaining these vehicles in the best possible condition, through the practice of Yogic postures, breathwork, and meditation, enable us to reach towards higher levels of self-realisation and ultimately to the understanding of our true eternal relationship with the Divine"
