Michael Kessler, JD, RYT-500, E-RYT 200, is honored to be sharing the Yoga Tradition with all. Michael began his yoga journey in 2004 as a means of physical therapy following back surgery. Since that practical beginning, he has come to appreciate the many physical and spiritual aspects of yoga, both on and off the mat. Michael is honored to share his yogic passion and knowledge of the Tradition with all people. Michael and his spouse, Lily Dolan Kessler, were co-founders of Blooming Life Yoga and now conduct teacher training programs and workshops based on their manual "The History & Art of Living Yoga - Humanity's Quest for Nourishment."


Michael has enjoyed learning from many teachers, and is highly influenced by the deep and transformative teachings studied through the Morter Health Center with Dr. Sue Morter and Dr. Scott Cooper. Michael hopes his students will be able to relax their bodies and minds and experience a joyful experience. He also hopes to inspire his students to bring their yoga off the mat in a manner that will help enrich both their daily lives, and will help them bring awareness to others.
