Mikki Ayers

Mikki is a mother and full-time science teacher who first acknowledged the benefits of yoga over a decade ago. She began a consistent practice while living in Washington state, connecting with an instructor who had roots in Asheville. Being a native North Carolinian, this inspired Mikki to keep returning to classes week after week, not only for the benefits of Hatha yoga, but also for a sense of home. Through the years, consistency has varied through life changes, but she has always found solitude when practicing yoga. It brings a sense of calm in the midst of everydayness, hurried lifestyles, and varied life experiences. Her goal in teaching is to share the benefits to everyone, regardless of their journey. Yoga requires us to put our intention forward through the use of postures, breathwork, and meditation that help to strengthen and nurture the body, mind, and spirit. Yoga grounds Mikki in her daily intentions each time she shows up to create space on the mat. Whether it is Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Hatha, Yin, or Restorative, yoga is a gift to each and everyone one of us: our minds, our bodies, and our spirits.
