Mike Houlihan, Owner

Mike is a full-time co-Owner of Roots to Wings.  He is a certified Kripalu yoga instructor and energy healer. He draws great inspiration from Sudha Carol Lundeen, Devarshi Stephen Hartman, Jurian Hughes, Cobe Kozlowski and the many wonderful teachers at Kripalu.  In addition to Kripalu Hatha yoga (postures for physical and mental health), Mike has practiced and studied physical, energetic and spiritual healing under the guidance of Spiritual Teacher and Healer Chun Shim nim. He loves Kirtan and is inspired by the opportunity to combine yoga, music, and movement in a group setting. He brings a strong working knowledge of the meridian and chakra systems to his private healing yoga classes. Mike teaches a more meditative and gently demanding form of Hatha yoga with longer holds and incorporates meridian stretching and energy practices for self-healing. Mike has a strong interest in Ki gong, meditation and Christian contemplative practices (centering prayer) and feels that all the great wisdom traditions have the same essence. He has degrees in Economics and History from Rutgers College and holds an MBA from Boston University. He worked for 25 years in the corporate world as a management consultant for Deloitte and Chief Information Officer for a subsidiary of Irving Oil. Mike is available for private healing or yoga by appointment.

Mike’s greatest wish is that Roots to Wings inspires people to experience a healthy body, happy heart, and peaceful mind and in so being, create a society where everyone activates their potential to heal themselves, others, and the world. Mike is a lifelong resident of Newbury, meditative golfer, hockey, lacrosse, and soccer dad, and lives in the Old Town section with his wife Beth, and their four children, Ashley, Emma, Connor and Griffin.
