Laura Mullin, Co-Owner
Certified Yoga Instructor

After teaching fitness and dance for 10 years, Laura began practicing yoga in 1999.  She instantly fell in love with the practice and philosophy of yoga.  In 2001 she completed a 500 hour teacher training and internship at the Yoga Womb in Concord, Ca.  Since then she has taught full time in her own studios in Sacramento and Clayton as well as a few other local yoga centers.  In 2011, she received Shaktipat from Shri Anandi Ma at the Dhyan Yoga Center (www.dyc.org) and began training in the Kundalini Maha Yoga tradition.  Through her teachers Shri Anandi Ma and Dileepji , Laura continues to learn advanced yoga and meditation practices.  She says these teachers are her role models, and give her the ideal example of surrender and service that inspires her own teaching. 

Laura’s classes are challenging, and fun, and aim to guide the student toward meditation through breath and movement.  She honors the tradition of yoga, and teaches the relevancy of the ancient path in our modern world.  Her classes are inspired by the transformational and uplifting benefits that yoga has to offer.

Michi Clements
Certified Yoga Instructor

Michi is a certified yoga teacher and yoga therapist. As the daughter of a Buddhist priest, she was taught from an early age to be humble and gracious to all living things. Michi felt an instant body, mind and spirit connection when taking her first vinyasa class in 2003 and has been a devoted student ever since. After studying with many wonderful Bay Area teachers, she ventured down that path herself to teach others. Michi focuses on integration of breath and movement, alignment and internal awareness. As a result, she has developed a style of teaching that is both nurturing and challenging. A firm advocate of the healing powers of yoga, Michi became a yoga therapist in 2012 studying at the Niroga Institute. Michi truly believes that an integrated yoga practice can bring out the best qualities in every individual.
