Mikaela - Registered Yoga Teacher

Mikaela

Hello! My name is Mikaela. I am an avid yogi, ready to share my love for this practice with anyone and everyone! I have been immersed in the yoga world for 7 years now, and continue to grow my knowledge and joy of teaching via self-study and workshops.

more about Mikaela...
I like to explore a mix of everything in my classes: strength, flexibility, creativity, alignment, traditional yoga teachings/wisdom, feel good playlists, essential oils, you name it! I enjoy getting to know my students and always provide effective cues as well as hands on assists during my classes. From my experience this provides others with a feeling of comfort, safety, and learning! I want my students to learn something new every time they step on to their mats. I hope to inspire others to explore not only their asana (posture) practice, but also their spiritual, internal practice that is a huge part of yoga.

Aside from yoga I love to be outdoors, travel, eat healthy food (lots of plants!), create in the kitchen, write for my blog, and spend time with good friends and family. The simple stuff!

I absolutely love teaching private yoga sessions (1 person or a small group) as I feel it’s a powerful way to grow your practice. It’s a learning experience for both my students and myself. I would be happy to dedicate an hour to helping you discover a depth in your practice.
