Kristi’s classes are such a good workout! She’s always introducing new movements and postures that we don’t typically work on which I love. and I’d say her class is really good at building strength and endurance.
Michael Hibberts is a licensed acupuncture physician and a registered yoga teacher. He stepped into his first yoga class 9 years ago in 2005. The class was taught in his native home of Savannah, GA. Originally, he was looking to stretch his hamstrings and get some assistance with some lingering muscle and joint injuries that he had incurred during his years growing up as an avid athlete playing, football, baseball, basketball and other various sports. Five years later in April of 2010, Michael went on a solo-backpacking journey for 6 weeks to beautiful Costa Rica where he surfed at many locations along the Pacific coast and he practiced yoga daily. It was there that his love for yoga reached a new pinnacle. After taking classes from several different teachers from different backgrounds, he was amazed at what yoga was doing for his mind, body and spirit and he realized the transformational possibilities that come with the practice. He knew that he wanted to deepen his knowledge and someday eventually teach. After graduating with his Masters in Acupuncture in January of 2011, Michael studied diligently and passed the National Board Exams required to become a licensed Acupuncture Physician in the state of Florida. In January of 2012 he moved to beautiful Atlantic Beach and was immediately impressed with the yoga community in and around Jacksonville. In July 2014, Michael completed his 200 hour teacher training under Alyson Foreacre at Yoga Den and his dream of teaching yoga was finally a reality. Although he enjoys the physical aspect of an intense asana practice, Michael’s style tends to be more focused on the meditative and breath aspect of yoga. He enjoys bringing his knowledge of Eastern Medicine into the Yoga studio when teaching and sharing the many commonalities that these two modalities offer.
