It is evident that Mike lives and breaths these teachings - they are rooted in wisdom and authenticity. He bring decades of experience from all over the world and from the source of yoga - India! The yoga covers all kinds of styles and is customized to the students - it is not easy that is for sure, but nothing that is worthwhile is. I am a certified yoga teacher and not only learned a lot but was challenged. We also had students that have never done yoga and they were able to successfully learn.
Learning Vipassana and taking silence for a week was obviously difficult but not at the same time. It was peaceful, and necessary to really learn and go inside. The retreat schedule was full from morning to night - from classes, to walks, to hot springs trips, to massages and fantastic food. I enjoyed the intense schedule and thoughtfulness of the flow; you can tell everything was built to teach you from the ground up, it was well structured and came from love.
The house was rustic, the location peaceful and the staff were beyond sweet. This was home for a short time but will be a life time of memories to help find our way home when we get lost.
I highly recommend considering a retreat with Mike! Thank you again for a wonder end to 2014, I am beyond grateful!
