With over 30 years’ experience practicing and teaching yoga, and with a sincere passion to provide this purifying and rejuvenating practice to others, Mia Glick embodies the essence of dharma in action. She's a Miami native who began yoga as a teenager in Coconut Grove in 1984, seeking a healthy refuge from the chaos of her family life as one of seven siblings. Yoga nurtured her self-awareness, brought her inner peace, and set her on a path of lifelong practice. After 10 years delving into the art of Iyengar yoga, and enjoying a successful international modeling career with Ford in New York, Mia discovered Kundalini Yoga (3HO), and developed an instant connection with the teachings. Through meditation, once she discovered that Kundalini Yoga provided a practical tool through which to channel and express a focused stillness inside herself, she became aware of how to reach her highest potential. From that moment on, Mia knew her practice would have a larger purpose.
In 2016, with the support of the Rhythm Foundation, her mission came to life when she founded the Miami Beach Kundalini Yoga Festival, a two-day exhibit of profound healing, interpersonal and community connection, that was shared by people of all ages, from the yoga-conscious to the yoga-curious, including those simply seeking a more connected way of living.
In her teaching, Mia focuses on the power of movement from a physio-neurological perspective. She is certified in Prenatal and Kundalini Yoga. She studied directly under Yogi Bhajan at The Master‘s Touch in Espanola, NM (1996) and received his guidance throughout the years. She has also studied Anusara, 5 Rhythms, and Iyengar Yoga, learning directly from BKS Iyengar and Geeta at their school in Pune, India (1997). During her pregnancy in 1999, her teaching evolved toward holding a safe place for expecting mothers to connect within and with each other. Over a thousand women have enjoyed her Prenatal Yoga classes, with loving feedback. Her work has been featured in various publications, including the cover of DK Books’ B.K.S. Iyengar Yoga for Beginners, Yoga for Women, and Prevention Magazine.
