Michael D. Huggins is the Founder and Executive Director of the Transformation Yoga Project. After receiving an undergraduate degree from Villanova University and an MBA from Wharton, he worked his way up to being the Chief Operating Officer, President, and Chief Executive Officer of several medical device firms. In 2009, Mike pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor along with his employer and three other executives, which landed him in prison for nine months. The high-profile case drew national media attention, and Mike's world unraveled in the blink of an eye as he was whisked to the Federal Detention Center in Philadelphia. The yoga he had practiced and taught some years before incarceration turned out to be his salvation on the inside. He declined lucrative offers to return to the corporate world upon his release, and instead founded the non-profit organization: Transformation Yoga Project, which teaches trauma-informed yoga to prisoners, veterans, and those struggling with addiction. Specially trained in applying yoga practices for addiction recovery and trauma-related issues, he remains active in teaching yoga in prisons, as seen in the Huffington Post, CBS, FOX, and NBC News affiliates. He is a frequent speaker on tools for self-empowerment, and the power of yoga as a tool for rediscovering your true self. He is also a contributor to several books that focus on best practices for teaching trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness to underserved populations.

He always followed the rules, never rocked the boat, and everyone called him "Saint Michael" growing up. He got his MBA from Wharton, became a successful CEO, and then... he went to prison. In a behind-the-scenes look at life in a men's correctional facility, Going Om is the story of a man who was least likely to end up behind bars. Huggins shares both alarming and surprisingly funny stories, as well as emails that he had sent from prison, and lessons learned during the dimmest days of his life. Struggling to cope in a world where he did not belong, Huggins turned to the practice of yoga for strength and direction. Before long, "Yogi Mike" had a following of inmates seeking his help with physical fitness, anger management, and everything in between.
