About Mishiah

Mishiah Crute, affectionately known as Mish or Meesh, is a seasoned yoga and meditation instructor with more than a decade of experience. She holds over 1,000 hours of teaching expertise in Hatha, Ashtanga, Yoga Nidra, and possesses a deep connection to the chakra system. Mishiah's yoga journey deepened in Bali during a 200-hour teacher training with Meghan Currie in 2018, where she also found Isvara (Isa), a perfectly mixed mutt who became her loyal companion.

Previously, Mishiah successfully ran her own studio in Fayetteville, AR. She later took a three-month hiatus in Costa Rica to focus on developing digital content and planning retreats, enhancing her versatile skill set. Currently, she is establishing roots in Charleston, SC, and teaching at Satsang Yoga in Mount Pleasant, SC  with the aim of growing a vibrant yoga community.

more about mishiah

Mishiah's teaching style is a unique blend of practicality and depth, sensual and embodied, focusing on spinal health and movement. Grounded in the wisdom of Rumi, who said, "through love, all pain turns to medicine," her approach is centered on healing and nurturing inner strength through self-love, physical poses, controlled breathwork, and guided meditation.

For Mishiah, teaching is more than a profession—it's a true calling. She is a dedicated guide on the mat, helping students on their self-discovery journeys. Her methods encourage authenticity and self-awareness, creating a deep sense of connection within her students.

Mishiah is also actively involved in retreat planning and leading yoga teacher trainings. One notable upcoming event is the Chakra Rehab: Xinalani retreat in July 2024 in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, offering a chance to experience her transformative teachings in a serene setting.

In her leisure time, Mishiah enjoys exploring Charleston's diverse food scene, playing Scrabble, reading fantasy novels, and spending quality time outdoors with Isa. Her goal is to continue imparting her knowledge, aiding others in leading a balanced, mindful lifestyle. Mishiah's influence reaches beyond the yoga mat, inspiring her students to embrace their inner light in every aspect of their lives.

"Mishiah is an amazing yoga instructor. Every class is a curated experience based on student needs for that day. I always feel like I’m getting a private yoga session! Her classes have taught me so much about my body and mind. She has a careful focus on spinal health and posture improvement through yoga. Since joining her studio, I have experienced tremendous relief in my chronic back pain. I’d recommend Mishiah to anyone looking for specific needs or overall improvement of physical and mental health."

"My experience at this yoga studio has been an amazing one. I began as a novice beginner with private lessons with Mishiah. Mishiah is intuitive and “sees” her students, is kind and supportive, but doesn’t hold back on correcting and adjusting your postures and poses. She doesn’t just offer a yoga class. Mishiah offers a whole new way of being and thinking. After being Mishiah’s student for seven months, I’m grateful for my ever-improving practice and life! An added bonus is Isa, the precious Bali pup who sweetly greets you upon entering the studio!"

Sherilynn Brown

"Mishiah Yoga is a wonderful place to build physical strength, emotional safety, and a supportive community. As a relatively new yogi, I found her studio and have grown so much in my practice and in myself with her instruction. Mishiah is gifted at beautifully shaping her practices around the mind-body connection, with every practice focusing on cultivating a connection with your physical and emotional selves. I particularly enjoy that each class is tailored to the needs of the group that day. A bonus is always getting snuggles from the studio pup, Isa!"

Lauren Rosso

"Mishiah is very knowledgeable and passionate about her instruction. I've become more involved in yoga over the last year after opting for a fitness approach that is less damaging than the other approaches I was heavily involved in. Combat and non-combat injuries incurred over 9.5 years in the Army have forced me to modify some of my training to prolong joint health. Mishiah recognized discrepancies in my gate on sight and after further discussion offered alternate and modified positions so I can continue training with minimal to no knee pain. Her recommendations and insights are thoughtful and easy to understand and have been incredibly helpful in keeping me training and moving. Her insights extend beyond yoga and have improved my mindfulness and overall well-being."

Jonathan Shinall

"I started private lessons with Mishiah at a time when I was having many life changes & seeking help mentally and physically. She invests in her students and teaches practices that are not just good for your body, but also your mind. Her studio is beautiful! She has created a place where you feel safe and cared for. The growth I have seen in myself since beginning practice with Mishiah is wonderful! Highly recommend!"
