Beginner's aerial yoga class was SO MUCH FUN!!! I'd love to be able to take more classes but there aren't any offered during my free time (11am-3PM). I would love if there were more classes in this time frame, as I work late nights often. Thanks for the opportunity and the immensely fun experience!
Visitors to Flow Motion will see Mika either in the studio
teaching yoga classes, facilitating sound baths and singing bowl
sessions, or working in the spa as a client concierge.
Mika's journey with yoga began over ten years ago when she signed up for her first yoga class out of curiosity. For her, that “first date” with yoga was “love at first asana!" Passionate about holistic health, fitness, nutrition and natural healing methodologies from a young age, Mika's encounter with yoga felt like finding the missing piece of a jigsaw. Her dedicated practice has continued even as she has traveled, lived, and worked in a variety of places around the world, including Japan and China.
An avid practitioner of a wide variety of yoga styles, Mika feels particularly drawn to Vinyasa, Hatha, Power Flow, and Yin yoga. In addition to her RYT-200 training, Mika is a certified Ayurveda Specialist through the Yoga & Ayurveda Center. She has also completed an Aerial Yoga Play training and is excited to be one of the instructors for Flow Motion's new Aerial Yoga Program!
Mika aspires to positively impact others during interactions – both on and off the mat – and to make the most of every opportunity to infuse sparks of joy in their everyday experiences. Her classes are all about mindfully linking breath (pranayama) to movement, creative exploration, gratitude and creating a safe, healing space for students.
In addition to yoga, Mika is also certified in Plant-Based Nutrition through Cornell University and graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition as a qualified Health Coach. She is passionate about helping others by giving them the tools to improve their health through natural self-care, mindful living, personal empowerment, and greater body awareness.
When she isn't practicing yoga, working or learning something new, Mika enjoys spending time in nature, running, drinking tea, reading, hanging out with loved ones, making delicious healthy food (smoothie bowls are her favorite!), and learning languages.
