“Mike is one of the most positive, inspiring and all around wonderful people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. His mindful eating workshops have taught me so many simple ways to tweak my meals so they are as healthy (and DELICIOUS!) as possible. His recipes have been so easy to follow, I can’t wait to get more! On top of being an incredible chef, Mike has helped me transform my yoga practice. His passion for teaching yoga is so energizing, uplifting and motivating, it will fuel you through any one of his classes (as well as the rest of your week!). Whether it’s a mindful eating workshop or yoga, Mike’s classes are food for the soul.”
Justyna Paszkiewicz, Graphic Designer
“I have had the pleasure of attending many of Mike’s yoga classes as well as 2 of his Mindful Eating workshops. Mike’s approach to teaching is engaging, powerful, and encourages growth. He is knowledgeable, has a lot to share, raises and answers questions, is not overwhelming, and keeps me smiling the whole way through. After each workshop and class I left feeling energized, inspired, and ready to put my new knowledge and skills to use.”
Lauren Kalvaitis, Phsyiotherapist
“From the beginning of your teaching career I knew you were a star in the making. I loved your first class and continue to gain always with each of your classes. Your level of growth as a teacher has been exponential. Your flow I can describe as easy hard……just enough push with the equal amount of ease. I feel refreshed and brand new after each of your classes. Thanks for the continual amount of push and your inspiring chat during the flow…………….one hour of you a day makes all melt away!!!”

“I have had the pleasure of attending Mike’s food workshops and yoga classes. His mindful eating workshop changed my relationship with food. After years of denying myself or punishing myself for any food indiscretion, I now eat what I want, enjoy it, and have even lost a bit of weight. His fruit feast, his take on a fruit fast, was entertaining and hugely informative.
Mike is also a terrific yoga instructor. I’ve attended his classes as well as a backbend workshop. He provides excellent guidance through the poses while being funny and genuine. He inspires you to perform at your best. I’d recommend Mike for any session. He’s an enthusiastic and caring teacher.”
“Mike is one of my favourite yoga teachers. His cues are clear and his passion for yoga is admirable. Yoga is a gift for yourself and Mike is a gift to Yoga. When I leave his classes, I feel spiritually polished as though I have experienced a deep form of prayer. He begins his classes by drawing attention inward, to a pure space from which a student can set intentions. Mike trusts the ancient wisdom of yoga and leads others with grace into a powerful integration allowing mind, body and spirit to come into true alignment.”
“I started yoga 2 years ago and I attend Mike’s power yoga sessions regularly. I’ve also attended his workshops on mindful eating and enjoyed it so much that I’ve participated in two other sessions that he has conducted. Mike’s philosophy and passion have definitely had a positive influence on my whole outlook with regards to my physical and spiritual development. I have recommended his workshops to my friends and family. I am a manger of a medical diagnostic facility and it’s helped me to alleviated my stress and improve my interactions with my patients, colleagues and friends. Mike’s positive approach has helped me focus on a lifestyle that nourishes my mind and body.”
“What I love about Mike is that you cannot help but feel excited and motivated about living your best and healthiest life when you are around him. He is all about finding ways to use food for nourishment and healing your body, while understanding that if it isn’t pleasing to your palate, it won’t have any staying power. I’m excited to continue on my journey to optimum health with the support of Mike’s wisdom and expertise.”

“Mike is intuitive and honest. His ability to connect with people and help move and shift their energy is truly magical. He meets you as you are, with compassion, respect and an uncanny intuition for what you need right now. You immediate feel comfortable, connected and safe able to release and receive what you need in that moment.”
Tania Lutz, PYC Studio Owner, founder Healing Heroes
“Mike has been instrumental in my journey to healing and becoming the best version of myself. I had the wonderful opportunity to connect with Mike at the yoga studio where he teaches and through conversation he shared his reiki gift with me. For four years I stayed in a toxic, verbally abusive relationship and lost all my self love and self confidence. My first visit with Mike was eye opening and helped me see where much needed healing was required. I was able to open my eyes and see how much damage the relationship had done to me. During my Reiki session I felt at peace, I felt connected, I could feel my chakras, and I could feel Mike’s energy helping me. We spoke about the chakras that needed the most work, he gave me some homework. During my homework and healing process I acknowledged the relationship was no longer serving me. I returned to him a few months after my relationship had ended. When Mike worked on me we could both tell my energy was different, my alignment was different and I felt like I was transforming to the best version of myself. I am very grateful for Mike and the healing he has helped me through. I look forward to continuing to work with him.”
“I was going through a really hard time and Mike made me feel super comfortable and open. He seemed to know me better than I knew myself and helped me create shifts in my life from only one session. I’m not overly into things about the Universe etc, but he gave concrete things to work out to shift the energy in my life. Much of what he shared during my session I had never thought about before and the whole experience was very eye opening and powerful for me.”
