Michael started practising yoga in 2001.  In 2009 he became a yoga teacher.  Now he teaches Bikram Yoga, Vinyasa and Fierce Grace Yoga all over London.  He likes Sanskrit, handstands and almost anything that can be made out of coconut or bananas.  Because he finds it hard to encapsulate his entire experience of yoga in one short paragraph, he started an instagram account to document his yoga practice @mistereley, which he realised could in no way encapsulate his entire experience of yoga.  You can also talk to him on twitter @michaeleley.  He also believes that social media is causing the end of the world as we know it, so better yet, come to class, practise yoga and talk to him in person instead.
