Micah helps people BECOME THEIR OWN BEST TEACHER.

As the Dean of Scholé Yoga University, he has personally facilitated twenty-four yoga teacher trainings as well as countless workshops and electives.

He firmly believes that the way yoga teachers can do the greatest good is to help people become their own best teacher.

Micah is a consummate student and has completed well over five thousand hours of training and study in the yogic arts. He is recognized by the Yoga Alliance at the highest level (E-RYT 500) and is also a certified Tai Chi instructor. In addition to exhaustive studies in yoga and meditation, Micah has four college degrees, including a doctorate in jurisprudence. As a bar licensed attorney, he is proud to have worked with the Salt Lake County District Attorney's Office, the Rocky Mountain Innocence Center, and numerous other governmental or nonprofit organizations that protect and serve the underprivileged and marginalized. In his spare time, Micah enjoys anything that gets him outside and connected to nature, especially rock climbing, surfing, hiking, stand up paddle boarding, marksmanship, camping, and other wilderness adventures.

Shannon McPhee


SENIOR FACULTY MEMBER // SCHOLÉ YOGA UNIVERSITY

SHANNON HELPS PEOPLE TO USE YOGA AS A TOOL TO HEAR THE WORDS OF COMPASSION AND EMPATHY SPOKEN WITHIN.

FACULTY MEMBER // SCHOLÉ YOGA SALT LAKE

Jess Ekenstam


FACULTY MEMBER // SCHOLÉ YOGA SALT LAKE

Fitness was Jess’s hobby and obsession long before it BECAME his profession.

After striving to live a fit and active lifestyle nearly his whole life, he decided to take his passion and learn to share it with others through certifications with NASM and NCSA. Teaching came naturally to him, but when he found himself in a Scholé Yoga class after nearly two decades of guiding others through a variety of physical disciplines, he found a new desire to learn more.

After completing over 500 hours of certification through Scholé Yoga University, Jess has begun to lead classes and courses of his own. He continues to inspire others through a variety of mediums, mainly weightlifting, mixed martial arts, kickboxing, and yoga. Jess loves the individual experience that comes inside a group Scholé class. His favorite parts of teaching involve the creative process: fresh music, interesting flows, and every individual’s freedom to make it their own. He is rewarded and inspired everyday by watching gains on the mat and the gym floor turn into positive influences that go far beyond the physical.

ADJUNCT FACULTY MEMBER // SCHOLÉ YOGA Salt lake

Zach Holmquist


ADJUNCT FACULTY MEMBER // SCHOLÉ YOGA Salt lake

In every endeavor Zach works to create and curate experiences that impact and inspire others. 

From a young age he has been curious in exploring the influence of technology in the physical realm, and in 2013 he began to bring that vision to life by co-founding his startup, Teem, a company focused on improving and optimizing the Workplace Experience. From the first lines of code to today, Zach has helped build the company from a random late night idea to a platform that impacts the employees of thousands of innovative, busy organizations including LinkedIn, TripAdvisor, Box, and NASA. 

Seeking reprieve from the pandemonium of daily startup life, Zach found Scholé Yoga to be exactly the escape he was looking for, a unique immersive experience that was a remix of the ancient art of yoga infused with music and cutting-edge technology. As a Scholé Level Two Certified Guide, Zach brings to his teaching a unique blend of passion and connection.  In the process of finishing his 500 RYT Certification, Zach looks forward to continuing to grow and evolve his practice and teaching at Scholé in ways similar to what he has become familiar with being involved in the fast-paced and always evolving tech industry.
