"Mia’s smile can be heard through her voice. Her cadence of teaching is much like a lullaby to the senses. As an owner of a yoga studio it has been an honor to have her teach. She is professional, knowledgeable and committed to each student who enters. She has a way about her that is infectious and pulls you into wholeness."
— Mandy Lucchese, Co-owner of Wild Mountain Yoga Nevada City, CA
"I have been fed by Mia! Through both food and movement, this woman knows how to nourish the body, heart and soul. Her warmth is an invitation to step onto the mat and her clear, strong, yet gentle guidance is an invitation to dig into self. She creates a safe space to explore and expand with her loving presence, deep wisdom and graceful instruction. My body and heart were stretched and relaxed after each session of yoga with Mia and in carrying out the practices she taught for myself. And as for the yumminess she serves up come mealtime, she is a master at bringing together hearty, healthy creations that nurture the body while pleasing the senses. Her cooking is clearly done with consideration and respect for the body’s needs and desires. I trust Mia in her offerings of love. She is such a treat!"

"Two years ago I decided to try yoga. I was finally tired of hearing my own voice say 'I should do yoga.It would be so good for me'. They were offering a few classes at my woman’s gym here in Marin county. I was a little nervous because I had all these preconceived ideas about how everyone was going to be a yoga expert, I wasn’t flexible enough, I wasn’t groovy enough,etc. Well, our teacher (Mia) walked in the room and I was immediately at ease. Something about her..her grace, her flow, her gentle smile. She had this way of making everyone in the room feel like they were exactly the way they were supposed to be. No comparing, no judging. I experienced, for the first time, what this yoga thing is all about. I was at peace and time stood still but it also flew by. I continued to go to her classes every week and started feeling emotionally and physically better than I ever had. Mia’s classes opened the doorway to a beautiful world."

"I have been blessed both to be a student of Mia and to have her as my very first yoga teacher. Mia is a strong, competent yoga instructor who artfully takes you through class focusing on proper alignment, breathing, meditation, etc. But more importantly to being a great teacher, Mia possesses a special quality found only in certain teachers. She connects with her class on an extremely high level with her warmth and love being an integral part of her teaching. That feeling or connection that you receive from her class is difficult to explain in words but for anyone who has had a special teacher in their practice like Mia, you will know exactly what I’m talking about. Yoga has been a life changing experience for me. This experience would not have happened without the kind, loving influence of Mia. I strongly recommend her."
