MICHAEL MILLER TRADEMARK

   
   
   
   

The Michael Miller Trademark is a symbol of ideal posture and perfect body alignment.  Based upon the physics of angular momentum, and the natural emanation of spiral movement out into space found in galaxies, whirlpools, shells, wind and light.  Only by assuming the natural and counter-balancing tensions of reality in our own body can we mitigate the stress of gravity and move pain free with ease and grace. 

   
   
   
   

MICHAEL MILLER’S MISSION:

   
   

--have fun
--honor my gift
--illuminate the ideal within the tradition
