MIMSY is Yoga for healing, renewing, discovering.
MIMSY is Yoga for your back, hips, spine and your mind.
Testimonials from Yoga Teachers, Therapists and Studio Owners
Lanita’s training should be mandatory training for every yoga teacher. Her ability to work with all ages, levels and abilities, and to be able to customize each class for the needs of those who walk in is amazing to watch. Her knowledge and intuition guide her, and her beautiful spirit, and not so perfect or thin body help us all realize that yoga is much much more than just pose.”

Judy – San Diego Pain Management Clinic
Lanita is a vibrant, plus size woman who has been teaching Yoga and Yoga Therapy full time since 1996. She has owned and managed a Yoga Center since 2000. Challenged all her life with body and weight challenges, depression, and fibromyalgia, Lanita is living proof that yoga can teach you how to release pain and live joyfully, despite your physical or emotional limitations.
Because MIMSY is such a unique style of yoga that is accessible and beneficial to so many different types of students, her local students have urged her to now share this unique style with the world, and other Studios. As she visits other cities and suburbs, she invites people who are afraid of yoga; never dreamed they could practice yoga; or have been injured by other styles of yoga; or forms of exercise; to experience a new way to look at – and take care of their body. Her joy comes in helping match these new students to local teachers that offer gentle, adaptive and accessible yoga classes.
Featured in the 1999 Yoga Journal article: Why Yoga Works When Diets Often Fail, Lanita has taught at: the 2002 Yoga Journal Conference in San Diego, CA; Feathered Pipe Retreat Center in Helena, MT; Kripalu Yoga Center in Lenox, MA; as well as dozens of Workshops and Retreats in Julian, CA; Seattle, WA; and Scottsdale, AZ.
