Hi! We are Mike and Jess. We met in a yoga studio, lived above a yoga studio, and adopted our dog at a yoga studio. It only feels right that we share the yoga lifestyle through our company, Collective Flow. While the physical movement of yoga is beneficial and a huge part of our practice, we also focus on the power of breathing, meditation, and personal development to help unleash your inner warrior.

Incoming awkward introduction:
My name is Mike, and my birthday is May 28th which rhymes if you say it just right where the “th” sound is silent.
Anywho, I’m an ACE (American Council on Exercise) certified personal trainer, group fitness, and yoga instructor. Over the past four years, I have been teaching a variety of group fitness formats including HIIT, Strength, Core, TRX and Cardio Kickboxing as well as sculpt style yoga. The worlds of fitness, personal training, positive psychology, and mindfulness have all melded together to help me develop a unique approach to support your individual goals regardless of where you’re at in your personal development journey.
I believe that our mental muscles are just as, if not more, important to focus on strengthening as our physical muscles. The research behind the impact of positive psychology, breath work, meditation, and mindfulness is fascinating to me and my goal is to bring these benefits to you through quick bursts of practical exercises to improve your mental well-being, regardless if you are at home, on-the-go or at a gym.
I love making music, playing with our dog Kota, the Milwaukee Bucks, Green Bay Packers and making my wife, Jess, laugh.
Co-owner & Yoga Instructor
Hi! I’m Jess. My journey into yoga and wellness started with efforts to strengthen my mental health and the search for self love. I quickly realized how I unintentionally gained noticeable strength, confidence, and physical health along the way. Yoga has been a resource to me in the times I've needed healing most.
I have been practicing yoga for 13 years and a 200 hour certified yoga teacher for 6 years. I have experience teaching many styles of yoga like Yin and Restorative, Vinyasa, and Sculpt. I feel very passionately about the yoga philosophy & lifestyle, and have made it my mission to help others practice daily movement, meditation, and breathing techniques. I work to create an environment where students feel comfortable to practice and think freely.
When we work to find balance and creativity outside of business tasks, I love reading books or crafting while Mike plays music, learning through continuing education and podcasts, and taking our sweet yoga puppy, Kota, to the dog park.
