He has played lead guitar in the hit Broadway musical, ‘Wicked’ [’04-’09], and is a contributing blogger and video instructor for Guitar World magazine.

In 2010 Michael founded Sarva Yoga Academy at the request of his students to learn these ancient practices within an intimate group environment. Itsmission is to faithfully transmit the wisdom of Tibet, India and the Fourth Way of G.I Gurdjieff to students so they may discover the hero’s journey within their own life and, through study and practice truly be of service to others. Sarva Yoga Academy is unique in that it is designed for people who aren’t necessarily interested in teaching but who are eager to deepen their own knowledge of yoga. For those wishing to teach or who are already teaching, Sarva is an incredible resource for broadening their education so they may have more to offer their students.
