private instruction

Mishiah curates private yoga lessons according to the needs and preferences of each client, incorporating elements of asana (physical yoga postures) practice, Vedic philosophy, talk therapy, somatic experiencing, physical therapy, and meditation into a comprehensive and healing yoga experience. 

Private lessons are therapeutic and take into account more than physicality. The physical practice is only the tip of the yoga iceberg, and while injury rehab is an excellent reason to start private instruction, the essential healing is more than bodily. A private yoga education gives curated guidance to align the body, mind, and soul.

Private lessons allow students to share in a safe space. Life experience, trauma, and methods of processing or storing trauma all play a role in creating and influencing the energetics of life.

Samskara are energetic blocks that develop in the wake of an undigested trauma or avoiding feelings related to an intensely emotional event. The unprocessed traumatic experience gets stored in the body - most often the hips, heart, or throat. When we move and stretch the physical body, Samskara begin to dislodge and break apart.

Beginner yogis tend to refer to the discomfort of stretching and growing muscles as "pain". Without yoga, it is easy to qualify sensations as feeling "good" and "bad." Yoga teaches the union of opposites and blurs the line of demarcation between "positive" and "negative," teaching students to see the "good" in the "bad" and the "bad" in the "good." The sensation of a painfully pleasurable massage or stretch best illustrates this union of opposites. Through practice, yogis become increasingly comfortable being uncomfortable, learning that the "hurts so good" feeling is a necessary part of growth. 

What we resist persists. The discomfort felt when holding a chair posture or stretching into a split is not pain but more an expression of blocked, bottled-up feelings that linger in the body. When we avoid dealing with or processing hard emotions, they remain in the body.  Stretching might feel generally uncomfortable in a non-descript way as suppressed emotions and experiences are re-felt. By resisting movement or backing out of an uncomfortable stretch - Samskara persist. Only by giving careful attention to physical pain and difficult emotions - turning towards and leaning into discomfort - are Samskara digested by the light of our awareness. 

Private yoga instruction teaches the physical practice of yoga and then employs the practice as a tool to clear Samskara and restore energetics in the body, mind, and spirit. This clearing and restoration is a challenging yet unavoidable element on the journey to starting, growing, and sustaining a yoga practice.   

Opening to a journey of self-exploration is easier than sustaining the practice of remaining open and curious. Investing in private lessons is like hiring a guide to help navigate the awkward, exhausting, yet painfully essential process. Private instruction will expedite the unearthing and digesting of stale emotions - rerouting the withholding energy of Samskara into conscious self-direction and growth.

slow flow & lunar yoga nidra studio class

Expect 45 minutes of gentle movement followed by a 30-minute guided Yoga Nidra Meditation. There are four primary lunar seasons: new, waxing, full, and waning. Each week the tone of the meditation shifts to align with the current lunar energy.

Yoga Nidra is a healing and transformative meditative tradition incorporating somatic experiencing, progressive relaxation, body scanning, and intention setting.

This style of meditation is practiced lying down & typically starts as a hypnotic nap. Complimentary blankets and blocks are available for student use, & students are welcome to bring bolsters, eye pillows, or any other prop they like.


Yoga Nidra means yogic sleep. Yoga Nidra is a healing and transformative meditative tradition that uses somatic experiencing, progressive relaxation, body scanning, and intention setting to lead practitioners into a deeply relaxed state of conscious awareness. This style of meditation is practiced lying down & typically starts as a hypnotic nap.

In this state -the body is asleep while the mind stays open to sound and aware of being. Yoga Nidra allows practitioners to sink deeply into and identify with purpose - inspiring healing, creating alignment, and restoring the body, mind, and soul.

Yogis hear the word intention in most yoga classes, yet the true meaning of the word has yet to be universally understood. Sankalpa is a name for intention specific to a Yoga Nidra practice and is the ancient word for resolve or sacred vow

Sankalpa begin with the words "I am..." and should describe a feeling, divine state, or way of being the practitioner wishes to embody. Yoga Nidra is a practice of inviting and reviving what we already are. Sankalpa nourish divinity - our deep, innate, and primal potential.

Our energy ebbs and flows along with the moon's monthly phases. There are seasons for rest, and there are seasons for action. Aligning your energy with these seasons can magnify your efforts in both rest and manifestation. Mishiah uses lunar seasons to guide intention and create a comprehensive rotation of Sankalpa - align, intend, manifest, and release.

When thinking about lunar energy, it is helpful to relate the moon's phases to stages of farming. The new moon is a time for soil preparation - caring for your body, mind, and soul in ways that will support growth. The new moon is a time for reflection and self-care - releasing the energy of the former cycle and focusing on the future. 

A waxing moon means it is time to plant - or set your intentions. In this lunar stage, selecting a crop that will support growth is essential. Intentions should be simple and encapsulate the essence of ways of being. The waxing moon is the time for directed action - scheduling tasks that will bring you closer to your goals. 

During a full moon - the crops have grown to their full potential. The full phase is the season for manifestation - appreciating all of your efforts and admiring your accomplishments in the light of maximum lunar support. 

The waning phase can be likened to a harvest. This is a season of rest and withdrawal - a sort of hibernation. During this time, it is essential to focus on gratitude, lessons learned, and release in preparation for the next lunar cycle. 

Join us Wednesday nights AT 6 PM as we follow the moon through the cycles - setting weekly intentions and meditating on the specific energy of each season.

euphonia pop-ups

Euphonia nurtures embodiment, intention, and focus. Mishiah designs each event for relaxing the mind while moving the body. Euphonia students practice wearing RF (radio frequency ) headphones to foster focus and flow as the cues and playlist broadcast into students' lovely little ears. Excess and distracting noise is canceled - creating and encapsulating the individual experience.

Music has a way of loosening knots in the heart - shifting and massaging moods and an inspiring lightness of being. Euphonia incorporates music to balance ease with effort - creating a moving meditation backed by a soultronic soundtrack.

The bandwidth of human attention is limited. Relying on sight in a yoga class spends attention unnecessarily and can become a shortcut around presence. Watching other students creates a sort of half-presence in which both the mind and the body continue to move without intention. Thought loops, fear, planning, and distraction can still hover in the mind while students half-practice. Following other yogis is like copying another student's homework right before it's due. The work gets done, the learning does not, and it looks pretty sloppy.

Pratyāhāra is a meditative approach that means "to withdraw"- especially from the senses or external objects. Euphonia encourages students to withdraw from sight - intentionally anchoring focus in sound and touch. 

As students begin to soften their gaze, listen, and self-direct their bodies, the mind-body connection grows strong. Euphonia is an invitation to explore the inner bounds of being - moving through bocks and beyond thresholds that complicate being - both on and off the mat.
