TESTIMONIALS!!

Mia Happy Yoga

"Mia is one of my favorite yoga teachers. Besides her kind and calming voice, every class is different.  She makes an effort to get to know the people who are attending her class. She asks about their level of practice and if they have any injuries.  She utilizes this information to create the ultimate yoga experience. Over time, she has become clear about the skill levels of her students which allows her to push them to the appropriate place.  In addition to this, she customizes her music so that it is never the same and sometimes theme related, which is fun.  Nothing makes me happier than coming to Reach and having Mia welcome me at the door.  At that moment, I know that I am about to share in another excellent yoga adventure."


“Mia is a kind and gentle soul. Yoga with her is a great workout, but it’s not just exercise. She genuinely cares for her students and wants them to enjoy yoga as a mind, body and breath experience. She has moved up the challenge of the practice to keep pace with the progress that the regular core of students have made. I’ve been in her class for years.”


“Mia has such a peaceful presence. I enjoy her yoga classes and appreciate the sequences she cues, but perhaps most of all I benefit from the tranquil, supportive sound of her voice. She always has a genuine smile and honest dedication to her students. She is a gift!”


“I love Mia! She’s a kind, empathetic, knowledgeable yoga teacher who makes me feel like I’ve given my body & my mind an enormous gift. I always leave her classes feeling just a little bit better about myself. She’s actually my favorite teacher. Plus, she has killer playlists!”


“Mia Happy Yoga. Need i say more? Mia depicts the word happy. Her classes are always upbeat, with well-edited tunes, fun sequencing that opens up your entire soul and always many laughs. Her soothing voice reminds us to ‘try less hard’ and just be ok with where you are. She is so kind and caring and i feel lucky every time I’m in her presence. She and her teaching are both really special, i adore her.”


“I can describe Mia in one word … that word is ‘brilliant. Mia is the most phenomenal, caring, gifted and intuitive teacher and she brings her beautiful brilliant spirit to every class she teaches. I feel so grateful to have the good fortune to experience her light at Reach as often as I can.”


“Mia Cutler is my favorite yoga practice teacher. Her warmth, cheerfulness, and serious focus without taking herself too seriously make her a joy to be with. Her classes have a wonderful free and friendly atmosphere which I attribute to Mia’s personality and her personal interest in every yogi in the room. Also, I find her sequences, which can be quite challenging, make sense and allow me to be totally immersed in the experience.”


“I’m hesitant to say too many nice things about her, because Mia Cutler is a yogi’s best kept secret and I’d like it to stay that way. She is about the most knowledgeable and prepared instructors you will ever meet. While she may not be the flashiest or the one with the cool Instagram account, she brings to the mat a wealth of experience that in many ways is beyond approach from most every other instructor I practice with. Moreover, she’s always looking to improve my practice as well as hers and together over the years we’ve both benefited from our mats being in the same room. Her sequencing challenges my brain twice as much as my body and often times, it not just leaves me invigorated when I roll up my mat but gives me purpose to take that practice out of the studio. On top of that, she’s about the happiest person I know, and that’s contagious!”


“Something I think that is very difficult that Mia does is to bring alignment cues into a challenging flow practice. Coming from the Iyengar tradition, I can appreciate these cues that teach us more about what we are doing. It’s obvious Mia continues to learn as she teaches, I know that isn’t easy either. Mia’s classes are challenging but she is always reminding us to accept what our limitations are on that day, and that those limitations can change and ease. She does this kindly. While initially she may appear kind of “loosey-goosey”, it’s quickly obvious under there is a steel will. Mixing & balancing out that drive and steel will with fun, humility & acceptance is a great gift to us as her students.”


“I love Mia’s Saturday morning class! Her combinations are complex, her cues are perfectly given and I enjoy her choice of music. The class is challenging and fun, and I always leave class feeling awesome!!”
