Mitten was introduced to Yoga at the age of 55 and in her very first class realized that the asana practice is a special gift to the body, mind, and spirit. She believes that it gives one the opportunity and ability to move with greater harmony and grace through the rhythms of life. Having lived in NYC for 60 years, of which 30 of those years she taught early childhood education at Park Avenue Christian School, Mitten was more than delighted to move east and continue teaching here, this time Yoga to adults as well as children. With practical insights, she encourages her students to take a playful but carefully aligned asana practice on the mat out into their daily life. Mitten honors her many Anusara teachers and John Friend’s tradition, gives gratitude to those who have encouraged her to teach, and appreciates the many students who continually open her eyes to new possibilities.
