has been adventuring all his life. At the age of three, he moved from his birthplace of Mexico City to the state of Wyoming. Between touring and playing bass with his band, the unstoppable Teenage Bottlerocket (Fat Wreck Chords), and journeying to master his yoga practice, Miguel has visited five continents and forty countries. When he is not on the road, he teaches at self-owned Blossom Yoga in Dallas. Among other trainings he received his 500 hour RYT in Rishikesh, India after at Shiva Yoga Peeth. Miguel is the author of I Want to Be Well: How a Punk Found Peace and You Can Too and The Death Of You: A Book for Anyone Who Might Not Live Forever (Wisdom Publications), which combine his passion of music, yoga, and spirituality.
As a teacher, Miguel creates space for a light-hearted, yet down to earth approach to spiritual practice. In his spare time Miguel writes articles about music, life and spirituality and has contributed to publications such as The Shambhala Sun, Lion’s Roar, Alternative Press and New Noise Magazine. He writes a weekly newsletter Be Fucking Happy. Miguel received his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Wyoming in 2009 and hopes one day to actually use it for something. Seriously, anything.
He lives in Dallas, Texas with his wife Emilie, daughter Olivia, son Nolan and their two dogs.
