Michael Streeter - Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider
Sgt. Streeter, a former US Army Ranger with the 2nd/75th Ranger Regiment, began his yoga journey in 2012, becoming a Yoga Alliance certified instructor in 2015. For many years he suffered from physical, mental, and emotional effects of a parachuting accident, including lower back and leg injuries, concussions, and PTSD. His yoga journey began when he participated in a holistic program at the Charleston V.A. There, his primary care practitioner bluntly and directly told him that in order, to change his situation he must lose weight, eat healthy, meditate, and do yoga. He began practicing Vinyasa Flow, and then moved on to Ashtanga Yoga; he has experience with many other types of yoga, though Vinyasa and Ashtanga are his true calling. Streeter trained at Jiva Yoga Center in Hilton Head, South Carolina, receiving his E- RYT-200 certification; he is an active Yoga Alliance member and is affiliated with several organizations that address veterans, addiction, and PTSD. Streeter believes in building knowledge, understanding, and appreciation for the 8 limbs of yoga in order to provide a rich experience for his students and himself. In November 2020 He finished his RYT-300 with the Asheville yoga center.
Streeter teaches an Ashtanga-based Vinyasa flow; he is known for a strong style, incorporating breathe, core engagement, and mindful movement. During practice, students are challenged physically and mentally; the ultimate goal is calming the mind and breath on the mat and learning how to take this practice off the mat into your world.
