Mimi has been living and breathing her dream of being a full-time yoga teacher for 15 years. She created O2 Yoga in 1998 as a way to introduce people to the system she believes is like no other for changing and improving body, mind, and spirit. She has a BS in nutrition, a BA in psychology, and an MS in exercise physiology. Feeling centered, grounded and peaceful involves all facets of the physical and energetic body . Yoga is a natural extension of this belief. “Yoga represents a way of harnessing all the good energy, focusing it on one point, to create a more harmonious individual and therefore a more peaceful world,” she says. Her infectious enthusiasm and love for teaching comes through in everything she does. She specializes in strong anatomical focus, adjusting the body to better align and strengthen the spine and therefore create better posture, better mood, better interactions with the world, and a more centered and quiet mind.
Mimi’s creation, O2 Yoga, is a unique system that draws from the philosophy of the eight-limbed path of Patanjali. O2 Yoga is athletic, empowering, energizing, and life-changing. O2 Yoga is a community of teachers and students who believe in the connection to all living beings and therefore our responsibility to be conscious of all of our actions, words, and intentions. O2 Yoga encourages a proactive interaction with the world.
Mimi has been thrilled to receive many “Best of”s, including “Best of the South End,” “Best Yoga in Boston” by the Weekly Dig, and “Best Yoga in Boston” by the Boston Phoenix, just to name a few! Most importantly, she is inspired every day by her husband, Steven, her two boys, Dylan and Deven, and her family’s ever-increasing animals, including 2 dogs and 10 chickens. Mimi runs teacher training and retreats locally and internationally. She is also incredibly joyful and passionate about animals, vegan cooking, home schooling, traveling with her family, and helping her husband rebuild their antique sailboat, which will take them around the world someday soon.
