This place is amazing and I am so blessed to have this sanctuary only 15 minutes away from my home! The place is very soothing and healing, and it just has a good feel. The decoration, the ambiance, and all the healing rooms. I don't want to leave! My hubby and I had our couples massage here in the Himalayan Salt room and the only complaint I have is that I should have gotten the 90 minutes instead of 60! I also love their Yoga classes, they have a wide range of selections. I tried their Intro Aerial Yoga classes twice, one with Molly and second one with Mika they are both excellent instructors and it was so much fun, that I am trying it again for the third time bringing my 16 year old daughter this Saturday. I absolutely loved it! I also tried the Hot Yoga with Mika and she is just amazing, I really need this as I need to focus on stretching and balance more! Everyone here is so nice and welcoming, Alyssa the owner greeted me when I showed up for my second and third Yoga classes and she is awesome. She always made me feel welcome actually everyone here that I met so far has really made me feel welcome and that they been waiting for you to arrive. Alyssa have done an awesome job with this place, I am so glad I got a chance to chat with her to express my appreciation for what she has done here. It's just that positive vibe that everyone seem to have here and I'm really happy that I live so close that I can start attending on regular basis. I am looking forward to my journey here as I attempt to learn more about body healing and self care through Yoga, Salt therapy and reflexology. Thank you Flow Motions, for giving me a chance to heal myself!

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.
