"As an occupational therapist looking for true adaptive yoga for my clients living with paralysis, Collective Flow has been incredible to collaborate with. Jess and Mike have a well-rounded background in yoga and fitness, and an openness to feedback making them the perfect partners for my diverse clients.
Most adaptive yoga provided is limited to seated low intensity stretches, but many people with physical disabilities can be challenged much more than that. Jess and Mike have been great at looking at each individual’s full capability and providing appropriate, challenging, and rewarding yoga routines.
Their expertise has made them a valuable resource to local and international clients (via virtual services!) who are looking for a well-rounded workout in their yoga practice."
Program Manager for Education & Training
Medical College of Wisconsin
"Our department reached out to Collective Flow to provide thirty minute yoga sessions for our team during the lunch hour as a wellness initiative. Our team was experiencing an especially stressful time in our work, so we asked Mike and Jess to provide an easy to follow flow with a focus on mindfulness. Through our three sessions, I heard comments from colleagues such as, "yoga was easily the best part of my day." Their ability to provide a grounding and focus through their practice is such a beautiful gift."
"At the age of 67 I have finally found an exercise routine that works for me. I enjoy the workouts he creates and he changes them on a daily basis according to my arthritis issues. After working with Mike for only a month now I already can seeing a huge difference in my mobility, endurance and energy. I can finally say I look forward to my daily workouts! "
"Working with Mike is the best experience I have had with a personal trainer. He is very accommodating and uses his extensive knowledge to make a safe and effective workout. He is high energy and uses that to help motivate his clients. He is open to new challenges and is not afraid to try something new to help his clients."
Head Football Coach

"Collective Flow ran an introductory yoga series for student-athletes at Reagan High School which was incredibly beneficial both physically and mentally. Jess and Mike have such a positive presence and collaborate cohesively when leading classes; they flow seamlessly! They brim with palpable enthusiasm and expertise, which our student-athletes gravitated to during instruction. I can say with full confidence that our burgeoning yogis loved it!"
Owner & Trainer
Sport Fit Milwaukee
"I first met Mike and Jess from Collective Flow when they were brought in to do some yoga sessions with the high school football team I coach. Teenage, football playing boys and yoga don't always mix but Mike and Jess were able to quickly grab their attention, engage them, show them the benefits and challenges of yoga. We worked mindfulness, mobility, flexibility, balance and strength through a 1 month period. All of which will benefit them on and off the field. I look forward to continuing to work with Collective Flow in the future."
