Mimi’s passion is to serve as a guide for others who, like her, want to THRIVE while living with scoliosis and spinal fusion. She’s been teaching this practice in classes and one-on-one for over 14 years.

She is the first Yoga for Scoliosis Trainer with a spinal fusion (via Elise Browning Miller) and is certified in Adaptations to Yoga Practice for Scoliosis and Postural Dysfunctions via SchrothNYC and Kioko Therapy. In addition, Mimi holds a Masters of Applied Positive Psychology from The University of Pennsylvania and is mom to 2 daughters.
“My experience working with Mimi has been incredible and life-changing. I wanted to prevent surgical intervention, play tennis, travel, continue my career for as long as I want and pursue other interests. My pain has not only decreased but I am stronger, happier and more productive at work. I really believe that Mimi observes and remembers every pose, every difficulty and, believe it or not, every heartbeat I have had in the year I have known her and uses that information to constantly modify the individualized program that she has created for me and me alone. She is beyond belief–just an extraordinary teacher, therapist and person.”
