Michael Johnson has been a full-time yoga instructor for nearly two decades and a teacher trainer since 2003. He has travelled to India and studied many styles and traditions from Aṣṭāṅga Vinyāsa, Bhakti, Karma, Jñāna, Jīvamukti, Rāja, and Restorative to Yin. He is a lead instructor for Asheville Yoga Center’s 200hr Teacher Training and 300hr Advanced Training Programs.
Michael’s devotion to Bhakti Yoga allows him to transform the classical Yogic texts to meaningful and practical tools for his students to learn from. His love of philosophy and Sanskrit are obvious in the passion he brings to his students, both beginner and advanced.
