Mimi Brainard

👋 I am Mimi Brainard

I began practicing yoga in New York City 30 years ago when a friend invited me to a class taught by a diminutive Australian woman. It was Iyengar style and as I watched this tiny woman’s spine lengthen and unfold like an accordion, I was hooked. By the end of the class I swore she was two inches taller and I was as well. Not long after, I found Ashtanga at the Jivamukti Yoga Center and there was no turning back for this young yogini. But through all the styles I have practiced, three things remained paramount: breath, alignment, and movement. I have practiced Kula Flow for over 15 years and am trained and certified in Kula Flow Foundations from the Kula Yoga Project in NYC. My classes are designed to allow you to work secretly from within while letting you sweat and wring out the day's tensions. I am absolutely certain that a daily practice holds the key to good health in body and mind and I only hope to share with students my love of yoga and the creativity of the Kula style. I am eternally grateful to my teacher and life long friend Schuyler Grant who has shown me the way and led by example.
I am indebted to Liza Dousson for her years of guidance and teachings in YIN yoga. I also went through the 100 hr Back Care and Herniation Certification with Alison West at Yoga Union in NYC. I  found her rigorous training program, disciplined studio atmosphere and profound teachings in alignment, anatomy, the Yoga Sutras, mudras, chanting and respect for one another to be one of the most transformative experiences in my life. I continue to study with and learn from teachers such as Genny Kapuler, Deborah Wolk, Nikki Villela, Elise Browning Miller and the teachers in their studios.
