She became a yoga teacher to deepen her personal practice, and to become more skilled in                                                           translating the physical practice and philosophy of yoga into running, nutrition, and body image for better                                                         health and overall satisfaction with life.

This program is for both total beginners (couch to 5k) and experienced runners hoping to improve their 5k time.

The first meeting will begin at Yoga East Healing Arts Studio. You'll need to bring your running shoes, water, and any other desired equipment with you.

To balance her academic work, she has been teaching yoga for over 20 years, and continues                                             to be surprised at how often the subjects of her teaching intersect. Missy completed both her 200 and 300 hour                                             yoga teacher trainings at Yoga East Healing Arts. In her spare time, she regularly participates in mountain bike                                               races and gravel bike endurance races.
