testimonials

I am constantly thankful for his teachings

Michael is an extremely committed, articulate, honest yoga teacher who constantly challenges himself. As his student, he expects you would want nothing less from yourself. I began practicing yoga eleven years ago, and Michael was one of my first teachers. The fact that I’m still evolving so thoroughly and consistently and ease-fully, in my mind, has to have something to do with him. I am constantly thankful for his teachings.

Blend of Dharma, Asana, meditation, humor

Michael’s blend of Dharma, Asana, meditation, humor, and fierce dedication has allowed me and many others I know to take our practices deeper and to go beyond the mere physicality of Yoga.

He pulls me up and out of the funk that life sometimes brings

I count on Michael’s classes. He pulls me up and out of the funk that life sometimes brings. And when life is feeling really sweet, it’s the rock and roll, the honest and relatable stories of personal growth or failures, and the laughter that makes me feel all floaty when I walk out the door.

His teaching style and language are both elevated and grounded

Michael Hewett has literally transformed my conceptual view of “Me”. His words are a conduit for wisdom and a catalyst for realizations. His teaching style and language are both elevated and grounded, mixing eloquent word play with gritty jive. His intuitive methods have the uncanny ability to make you feel as if he is addressing the entire room, yet teaching you alone. For me, he functions as the perfect blend of scriptural dharma, empirical science, and real life experience. I am proud to say that I entrust Michael with my spiritual real estate…and that is a great trust indeed!!!

I am no longer tossed around by every storm, and every wave

I have always been determined: Braving the storm – the crashing waves, gripping whirlpools, and the ruthless winds. Fighting ruthlessly to survive and stay afloat until the calm returns. I knew only of this cycle until Michael slowly and gently pulled me under. His sincerity, honesty, and dedication to his practice, his students and his teachings are a mighty current – constant, directional, and guiding. Its affects are deeply penetrating and resonating. I am no longer tossed around by every storm, and every wave. My gripping has loosened as I can now ride the current under the storm with steadiness and joy. He has placed me on this path and beyond. I am forever grateful to my teacher, Michael Hewett.

This is the perfect opportunity to step onto your path

I’ve been studying with Michael for many, many years; probably longer & more consistently than any of his other students. Though I now study with additional spiritual teachers, Michael remains a thread & through line that keeps my practice steady and grounded in truth. Up until meeting Michael, my spiritual journey was disjointed; a bit all over the place. Now, I am constantly challenged to go beyond the learning of knowledge, but encouraged and nurtured to discover the realization of wisdom within my own heart. His instructions of the classical texts are very clear & delivered in a way that we can easily relate to and integrate within our own modern, city dwelling, fast paced lifestyles. To study this deeply and intimately with both Michael and these teachings is a wonderful opportunity, one not to be missed. If you desire a stronger relationship with spirit, truth, God, whatever you want to call it, then this is the perfect opportunity to step onto your path in doing so.

He’ll blow your head off and turn your body into clear light

Michael is an amazing, eloquent genius of a teacher. He’ll blow your head off and turn your body into clear light.

He guides us, inspires us, (often with quirky humor) to go deeper

Michael creates a space for honest exploration, discussion and meditation. He encourages his students to get real with themselves, to question, and to become personally connected to and engaged by the teachings. His approach is extremely accessible and perfectly attuned to the pace and concerns of modern people in modern life. Michael invites us to identify our patterns both as individuals and as a collective. He guides us, inspires us, (often with quirky humor) to go deeper.

He helps others very deeply

Michael is working to de-escalate the aggression in the world with humor, warmth and intelligence. He helps others very deeply.

A truly gifted teacher

Michael Hewett is a truly gifted teacher. He knows the Dharma, he practices it beautifully and he continually makes new realms accessible to everyone who studies with him.
