Michael Lear is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance, which acknowledges the completion of a yoga teacher training with an approved and active Registered Yoga School (RYS).  My entire personal development experience is not reflected in the hours listed on this site.

I came to Yoga through Trager Bodywork and Neuro-muscular Re-eductation.  Actually through - chronic lower back pain, hypertension, high cholestrol and clinically obesity - at age 23.  4 Years of bodywork, biofeedback and diet change came first.

I've practice Ashtanga-based asana since 1992 and began formal Ashtanga in 1999 - and began teaching (adjusting in 2001) at my own studio Easton Yoga after having 10 years of hands-on experience in a clinical setting .   I have a daily practice and practice through Advanced A -    I practice 7-10hrs. per week, thousands of hours at this point and teach Functional Yoga Anatomy for YA certified trainings.  I also practice and teach the intermediate Pranayamas as well.

My primary daily practice in addition to Asana is Vipassana Meditation in the tradition of Sayagyi U B Khin as Taught by S.N. Goenka.  I've sat and served 15 dhamma courses including a 20-day, and multiple experiential courses of the Maha Satipatthana Sutta since 1998. I've sat multiple short courses in this tradition as well I continue to sit 2hrs daily, maintain SIla and have sat thousands of hours to date.

I'm in my 26th year as a hands-on bodyworker, which informs my hands on adjustments - in particular Mysore style Ashtanga. More on the conditions I've successfully addressed can be found at www.pangea-yoga.com

My goal is the offer support for a balancing energizing, quieting and harmonizing daily practice that eventually inspires students to commit to a regular and deep seated meditation practice. 

May all beings be happy.   

Metta,

M
