Michael's main passions are his spiritual practices of Hatha yoga (he's a certified Jivamukti teacher), Five Rhythms/ecstatic dance, and Bhakti Yoga. He started chanting at the Sivananda ashram in the Bahamas in the late 90's. Living in NYC at the time, he took every opportunity to sit with the likes of Jai Uttal, Krishna das, Bhagavan Das, Shyamdas, and others. Now living in L.A., he joyfully leads Kirtan and sings for yoga classes at various local yoga studios. He sings traditional mantra set to unique original compositions. His style ranges from sweet, heart-felt yearning with hypnotic harmonics, to fiery intensity. He also holds down a corporate job in the entertainment business.
