Regarding my approach...
I advocate for an integrative approach to tackle life's challenges. Whether it's improving your daily routine or overcoming an obstacle, it's essential to focus on the mind, body, and spirit. During our first meeting, we collaborate to create a customized plan that works for you, as there is no one-size-fits-all approach. We then work together to achieve your goals and aspirations. However, it's not merely about goals; it's about embarking on a fulfilling journey of growth and self-discovery.

A little about me...
At 12 years old, I began my martial arts journey with the Okinawan style. Over the years, I added Japanese, Cambodian, and Kalaripayanttu (Indian martial arts) to my repertoire. At 45 years old, having achieved a black belt in Shitu Ryu (my second Okinawan style), I was eager to find a martial art that could revolutionize my practice. This led me to Tai Chi, which opened a new world for me, encompassing the body, mind, and spirit. It's a lifestyle that propels one to grow in multiple ways that have challenged me more than any other martial art.

Apart from martial arts, I have been practicing various forms of yoga for the past decade, including Vinyasa, Yin, and TaoYin. Additionally, I'm a lifelong student of meditation, mindfulness, and personal training.

For those who live far away, I offer regular online meetings at my studio. Please contact me if you're interested, or you can book with me directly on my website.

My credentials include a black belt in Okinawan style, a 200 hr RYT certification from Yoga Alliance, membership of the International Association of Yoga Therapists, membership of the American Tai Chi and Qigong Association, a Master of Divinity degree from Columbia International University, and I'm currently pursuing a Doctor of Education degree at Oklahoma State University.

In light of recent health concerns, I prioritize your safety and health. Therefore, I offer the option to meet online, and many of my clients are satisfied with this approach. Please contact me to check if it suits you.

If you book a package of four sessions, you will get a discount.

It was an absolute delight speaking with Michael! As a first-time therapy goer, I was naturally nervous, but I felt completely at ease with him. He really listened to me, and I'm looking forward to booking more sessions with him. Hopefully, he can help me along my healing journey :)
