Today I had the joy of receiving a beautiful massage from Katy. This was one of my first full-body, professional massage experiences and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience! Not only did the massage itself feel amazing, but Katy herself was so kind, gentle, and made the environment so comfortable and pleasant. I can't wait to book another session with her! :)
Mika's journey with yoga started over ten years ago when out of
curiosity she joined a small
Vinyasa class held in a YMCA. For her, that “first date” with yoga was “love at first asana”!
Passionate about holistic health and wellness, fitness,
plant-based nutrition and natural healing
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 also a certified
Ayurveda Specialist through the Yoga and Ayurveda Center. She enjoys engaging in meditation
and aroma therapy alongside her daily asana practice.
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.
Mika will also graduate from the Institute for Integrative
Nutrition as a certified Integrative
Nutrition Health Coach in 2021. 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, teaching or studying, Mika
enjoys hiking in nature, running,
drinking tea, reading, spending time with loved ones, making delicious healthy food (smoothie
bowls are her favorite!) and learning languages.
