Mischa's yoga journey began over a decade ago and slowly began to weave its way through her life; she is continually humbled and inspired by the potential of yoga to transform, expand and heal and is devoted to sharing the practice with others.
She holds enormous gratitude to leading vinyasa flow teacher Claire Missingham with whom she completed her initial 200 hours and went on to assist for some time afterwards.
Most recently Mischa finished an additional 300-hour training with her teacher Sianna Sherman who is of enormous influence and inspiration to her. She has now stepped into apprenticeship with Sianna and assists on her workshops and trainings.
Additionally, Mischa has a regular Iyengar and Astanga practice which grounds, supports and refines her more creative vinyasa style. Mischa has spent over a year in India studying, practicing and visiting sacred sites and it holds a special place in her heart.
She teaches a heartfelt practice with creative sequencing, a deep focus on breath and alignment and a combination of strong steady flow and longer holds to both uplift and tap into the stillness. She draws her understanding from a number of styles and traditions, particularly inspired by the philosophy and practices of the Tantric lineage.
Her classes are woven with philosophy, myth and stories and often include music, chanting, meditation and ritual. Her teaching is passionate and knowledgeable, her intention is to both challenge and restore, holding a space for individuals to open, reflect and absorb. You will be taken on a joyful journey of self-inquiry and unfolding. Mischa is committed to her own study and practice as the foundation of her teaching.
