In the 25 years that I have been teaching Yoga, Mike Chapman is one of the most knowledgeable yoga colleagues that I have met. His knowledge of yoga theory, the nuances of yoga asanas, human physiology and how the three inter-connect is superior to anyone else I have met. He’s also enthusiastic and passionate about the craft and that is reflected in the enthusiasm and passion of his students. – Caron S.
As a physician and former physical educator, I am impressed by Mike Chapman’s extensive knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics. He is also extremely proficient at applying this knowledge to his yoga students’ individual needs. In doing so, he provides an effective and safe exercise environment. I highly recommend his classes for anyone suffering with rehab issues, or any athlete wanting to round out their training and help to decrease their likelihood of injuries. – Dr. Tracy H.
Of all the training methods I participate in, from weight lifting to mountain biking, Mike’s yoga is the most physically challenging. Mike’s classes have allowed me to achieve the greatest results, from the narrowing of my waist to the development of upper-body strength and definition. I don’t only think of Mike as my yoga instructor, but my personal trainer as well. I would recommend Mike’s yoga system to any athlete that would like to improve or enhance their overall training. – Jason J.
