Missy believes the path of yoga leads you to see beauty in all things.  This beauty transforms, flows, and allows you to believe in and rejoice in the abundance of life.


Missy’s classes honor body, mind, & spirit in a fun way using yoga asanas, restorative yoga, breathing, guided imagery, and meditation to facilitate relaxation. Missy believes deep healing can and often does result from the practice of yoga. This idea is true for Missy. At one time, Missy was house-bound due to a chronic illness. Missy now leads a happy, healthy, beautiful life with her husband, also a Registered Yoga Teacher, and two children.


Missy teaches a unique blend of her life studies:  Fine Art, Education, Kripalu Yoga, Feng Shui, Energy Healing, Eastern & Western Philosophy, and the Therapeutics of Yoga.

Ongoing yoga classes are offered through the Kettering Health Network’s Community Wellness located at Kettering Medical Center – Sycamore in Miamisburg, OH.  Onsite yoga classes are offered for employees of LexisNexis in Dayton, OH.  Private yoga sessions are offered in Centerville, OH.




The focus of my classes is relaxation and meditation (the “real deal” according to Erich Schiffmann.) The type of yoga I teach is based on Kripalu, an introspective approach that uses the body’s wisdom as guidance. I often organize classes by a therapeutic theme such as “yoga for digestion” and “yoga for back pain.” The classes can be light-hearted and fun, but are often deeply moving and relaxing.

About Missy

My varied background blends to create a unique and supportive approach to teaching yoga. My journey began by attending Columbus College of Art & Design studying Interior Design & Advertising Design along with a traditional Fine Arts background. I continued to study Art Education, Art Therapy, and Eastern Philosophy at Wright State University earning a B.S. in Education certifying me to teach Art in grades K – 12.

Throughout college I supported myself working as a freelance draftsman and property manager. It was at this time I was diagnosed with a debilitating chronic illness for which there is no cure. The lowest point of the illness came after the birth of our second child which led me to become housebound due to pain. I saw a posting on the then new Internet where a patient with my illness (then rare) found pain relief through the practice of yoga. I then crawled (quite literally) to my first yoga class where the pain began to unravel, then stabilize, and then became manageable.

The dark cloud of pain, fear, and anxiety finally began to lift. I could function again as a mother and a wife. I was forever changed by and hooked on yoga. My quest led to more yoga training where I found the love of my life: teaching yoga! I returned to the love of studying Eastern philosophy and turned to the newfound study of Reiki as well. After completing Yoga Teacher Training and earning the designation of Registered Yoga Teacher, I traveled to California to study under Bhaskar Alan Deva, deepening my yoga and spiritual practice and became a Certified Feng Shui and Vastu Shastra Consultant. I went on to study with Judith Hanson Lasater to become a Relax and Renew Trainer certifying me to teach Restorative Yoga, a therapeutic approach.

I have continued to study with many master yoga teachers: Vidya Carolyn Dell’uomo, Cyndi Lee, Angela Farmer and Victor Van Kooten, Nischala Joy Devi, Erich Schiffmann. Recently my husband (also a Registered Yoga Teacher) and I studied advanced meditation practice and The Secret Power of Yoga with Nischala Joy Devi and Bhaskar Alan Deva at their amazing, totally one-of-a-kind retreat in Puerto Penaso, Mexico. Kent and I will study again with Erich Schiffmann in September.
