Mike, a professional contemporary dance artist with over 15 years performing experience discovered yoga through his university training with one of his technique teachers. Combing yoga with his dance training was one of the key factors in begining the long healing process of his Anorexic journey since aged 12. Dipping in and out over the years, his practice really took form 3 years ago under the guidance of Ana Chidzoy, owner of Hotpod Swansea. Embedding his yoga practice in both Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow with a clear focus and love for fluid, continuous movement united with the breath and a calm mind, Mike completed his Yoga Teacher Training in 2019. Specialising in both Strict Ashtanga and more free flowing Vinyasa, his dynamic class with challenge your abilities to improve your strength, mobility and flexibility whilst always maintaining a sense of presence within the body. As a dancer, Mike has naturally found an easier route into the physical asana practice of yoga but he himself has to work hard and improve his weaknesses. Each class allows each person to accept themselves for the wonder that they are and to allow everyone to experience yoga as a valued and honest individual. Let Mike guide you to find your own inner warrior.
