Mimi dedicates herself to her love of teaching by creating an environment that allows her students to grow both physically and psychologically. She holds certifications through Yoga Alliance with specializations in Pre-natal, and Senior Yoga, as well as being certified through The American Fitness and Aerobics Association, American Arthritis Association, and is a certified Hypnotherapist through the National Guild of Hypnosis. It was through her Graduate studies in Health Psychology that she discovered Yoga, as well as the mind-body practice of Pilates. As an avid, and life-long, dancer her love for movement, connection and flow came lovingly together in a perfect organic "Trifecta" that is Yoga, Pilates and Dance.
Mimi shares this love and passion and strives to help her students strengthen their body as well as their mind by opening them up for a transformational experience for self-actualization on, as well as “off the mat”. It all starts by taking care of ourselves and nourishing and embracing who we are. Creating a place for students to honor and pay homage to the gift of their mind and body, and reconnecting to the light that shines within.
Her classes tend to have a rhythmic and vigorous flow, founded on Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga and alignment, as well as the development of core strength.
Mimi is a native New Yorker, currently living in Queens with her beloved fur- baby “Romeo”.
