Meet Your Instructors

Helen Mikuska, SOYA, E-RYT500, Ayurvedic Teacher

Helen brings over 40 years of experience in the fitness industry to her students, with a background in Pilates, Ayurveda and Food Nutrition Management. Her yoga journey began through the SOYA training with Mugs McConnell and Dariel Vogel, with whom she completed her 500 hour yoga teacher training in 2004. Her passion lies in the rich traditions of the path, which inspire her classical approach to her Hatha yoga offerings. A devotee of Bhakti yoga, Helen delights in kirtan and mantra, having studied mantra with her late guru Namadeva Acharya.

Helen has studied extensively the ancient teachings of Wholistic and Ayurvedic Yoga through Dr. David Frawley. Other teachers on Helen’s path have included Aadil Palkhivala, Brad Waites, Gina Hager, Jennifer Weinert, Leslie Kaminoff, Dharma Mittra, Nischala Joy Devi and Susi Hately.

Meet your instructor

Rebecca Stone is an E-RYT500, R-CYT, Pain Care Aware Level 2

Rebecca graduated from SOYA’s program in 2010. The blessing of this curriculum, and learning with Mugs instilled a great love, respect and thirst for the authentic teachings of yoga. She is also a certified Children’s and Family Yoga teacher that loves to bring yoga to life through play and relationship building.

Creating yoga classes that are accessible, informative, and transformational for all ages and abilities is her passion. With the blessing of having a mother who was a physiotherapist for over 40 years, the opportunity to mentor under that wisdom has deeply influenced her understanding and presentation of the blending of yoga asana, functional movement principles and the mind/body/spirit connection.

She continues her ongoing education by being a voracious reader and question-asker, participating in varying workshops and retreats with world-class educators. She is currently studying with Yogacharya Dr. Ananda Bhavanani.
