About me

Michael is the founder and director of Rising Sun Yoga. He is a certified and registered Hatha and Iyengar-based yoga teacher and a martial arts instructor. He lives as holistically as he can - practicing yoga, contemplating, meditating, visualizing, feeling, eating smartly, staying fit and having a healthy outlook. Michael believes that thoughts are as powerful as anything you put into, or let come out of, your Self.

He has had the opportunity to experience many injuries including torn ligaments and tendons, ripped muscles, broken bones, fractured ribs, and vertebral problems as a result of engaging in team sports. He finds the only benefit to having experienced these injuries is that he understands what others have experienced, can teach people how to move properly, help re-align and balance them, and assist them in regaining a healthy lifestyle. He is a proponent of functional movement and mobility and believes this can achieved by minding the messages you receive.

Formerly a practicing herbalist, Iridologist, and health consultant, he learned to address issues holistically and has continued his education in key health related areas, conducting research through topic-related books and as a result, has had the privilege of helping many people. He also presents health-related topics to organizations and various groups with his sister, Mary Ann Amschler, RN.

For much of his life, he studied martial arts (for 33 years) before being introduced to yoga in 1999. During some of that time, he worked in the banking and software industries for 20 years.

Michael founded Rising Sun Yoga to help people change the(ir) paradigm, bring people together in community, and create a center for education in mind, body, and spirit. His classes can be slow and even, mindful and steady, or strong and flowing. Usually his classes are a combination of all of them giving you an opportunity to explore and stretch your boundaries. He is a Yoga Alliance (YA) e-RYT 500 hour certified yoga instructor.

He offers both group classes and private sessions. For private classes, he may be reached at Michael@RisingSunYoga.com or at 716.632.5802. One private session is $70, 3 are $195. He also offers therapeutic yoga for anyone with injuries or chronic conditions.

Michael has a daughter who is a YA 200 hour certified yoga instructor, adventure seeker, world traveller, ski instructor, and outdoor wilderness guide for BackRoads.
