Achieving your goals is just a call away! All we need is a space suitable for bodyweight conditioning and an internet connection. This is a great way to build a solid home practice and generalize the skills you have learned and honed in the gym. Exercise is a powerful, potent tool and it doesn't need to be confined to the traditional places, like gyms and comfy studios. Flexibility and strength conditioning is most potent when it's threaded through different environments, across all platforms. This is why I am so excited to share this offering with you!

Testimonials

Micah lives what he does. He is attentive to where you want to go and takes you there at lightening speed. He knows how to train the body to do impossible and amazing things. I am so grateful to learn his well practiced tips and tricks for handstands and flexibility!
— Amy, cirquebella.com
Goal-based, anatomy-driven, functional fitness with personalized asana flows. When training with Micah it’s truly your move.
— David Bowden, M.D.
I started working with Micah in the spring of 2013, with the express goal of wanting to learn how to do freestanding handstands, in the middle of the room, unsupported by a wall or someone to spot me. Micah took me from having zero experience at this lofty goal, to being able to now successfully achieve my goal of regularly doing unsupported, freestanding handstands, for up to 40 seconds. The conditioning process has improved my overall fitness level. I love working with Micah, b/c he challenges me to improve, is encouraging and the results are remarkable. I feel lucky to learn these skills, as an adult. Most 45 year old women can’t stand on their hands for nearly a minute!
