TT Overview


Founded by Shelley Williams and Genevieve Pujalet in 2011, Yoga Mittra empowers people to be in their body, mind, and soul in a balanced, sustainable way. For students wishing to deepen their practice, or those interested in teaching others, our mission is to foster a community of people… a family of like-minded yogis and yoginis…who share a grounded, intelligent, and synergistic approach to Vinyasa Yoga. Shelley and Genevieve are fortunate to be joined by Suzy Nece, owner of Yoga Loft, who also co-leads this annual immersion with love, knowledge, years of experience, and humor!

Yoga Mittra brings knowledge, years of experience, compassion, humor, education, authenticity, and hands-on learning. We offer our class journeys, training workshops, and immersions from our heart. The ‘flavor’ of our yoga emphasizes Vinyasa~ a special, intelligent, creative, adaptable approach to teaching and living yoga that is rooted in the tradition of Krishnamacharya’s influence, but does not adhere solely to one specific style or lineage. Each individual person is encouraged to establish a strong foundation with us, but is also supported in finding their own authentic voice and expression for sharing yoga.

Be sure to check our our Current Calendar of upcoming trainings and immersions.
