His pursuit of yogic truth has led him around the world, compelling him to train with gurus and guru-killers from Miami to Belfast and Kathmandu to his home, Orange County. It is his dream to see the idea of “yoga with weights” evolve and become its own independent form of yoga with the legitimacy and wisdom of thousand-year-old styles coupled with the most up-to-date scientific insights into optimal human performance.
When he is not pursuing this dream, he is off on some ill-conceived exodus into whatever macabre circumstance the next destination affords him. He has traveled to 49 countries and 37 states. Mike feels most comfortable when alone in high-risk situations of unforeseeable outcome. Additionally, he is a competitive gondola racer, holding the most medals in the United States, and before his days are done, Mike hopes to see gondola racing progress to the Olympic level.
