Michael Hamilton

Michael Hamilton is a dedicated student of yoga and vipassana meditation. He delights in sharing his enthusiasm for these ancient practices by teaching yoga classes, workshops, retreats and intensives upon invitation.
He was born in Cape Town, South Africa where he started studying martial arts at the age of six, leading to an interest in body practice supported by eastern philosophy and meditation. After studying art, art history, philosophy and English literature at university, his interests turned to studies in the ancient wisdom traditions of India, in particular Buddhism and Advaita Vedanta, which led to time spent in India and North America immersed in Yoga, Zen meditation and darshans with Advaita teachers.
He received permission to teach Ashtanga yoga from Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Sharath Jois of Mysore India, and currently studies yoga with Richard Freeman and Doug Keller.
After the passing of his Zen teacher Daido Loori Roshi, vipassana meditation in the lineage of Mahasi Sayadaw became his focus. Currently meditation studies and deep contemplative practice forms the foundation of his teachings on yoga and its integration into our daily lives. With an eye for detail and alignment he conducts workshops internationally emphasizing the internal practice of yoga through mindfulness. Michael teaches in English.
