MICHAEL SAA SEKHEM

Michael Saa Sekhem is a dedicated yoga instructor from Chicago, IL. Getting his first taste of yoga when he was 12. “I would wait until my mother left in the morning and would pop in her Rodney Yee yoga VHS tape.” Fast forward 14 years later he would become a yoga instructor. Michael graduated Columbia College of Chicago with a B.A. in Music Composition. He uses his skills in music to compose variations in yoga and pair movements to the music that might be playing or with the rhythm of breath created through each posture. Michael is Dedicated to serving the yogi community. For the last two years he has held space for young black men and black men with their children. Over time it became men and women, because Michael saw the vision to unify knowing separation should only be for a short time; when it’s time to heal, and it is time, we as men and women should unify. Michael is very committed to serving the community soul food in yoga form, providing students with a healthy way to tend to their spiritual, mental, emotional and physical needs.
