Mika Nishimura is originally from Japan residing in Los Angeles. She started practicing yoga in 2006. In her first yoga class, she fell in love with it and decided to become a yoga teacher. Although she initially started practicing yoga to get in shape, she loves the fact that yoga is much more than fitness. It is a tool for knowing yourself and becoming a better version of yourself.
Over the years, she has taught in the USA, Japan, Indonesia, the UK, New Zealand, Australia, Sweden and China. She holds a BS in Exercise and Sports Science, an MA in Yoga Studies and is certified in Yoga Therapy Rx Clinical Level (Level 3). Currently, she is continuing her studies in post-graduate Yoga Therapy at Loyola Marymount University.
She has seen many lives transformed through yoga practice and that motivates her to continue teaching. She believes yoga could be practiced by anyone and hopes to offer classes extensively so students have the opportunity to discover themselves.
