Mila is the founder of Metta Yoga. As a former school teacher, adminstrator, and professor of education, for Mila, teaching yoga is the marrying of two passions.
Mila has over a decade of experience leading classes, workshops, retreats and teacher trainings. She also serves as the yoga editor of Natural Awakenings Atlanta magazine and is a lululemon legacy ambassador. Mila considers herself a lifelong learner and continually looks towards deepening her own knowledge and practice of yoga.
Mila provides a safe space for students to not only meet themselves where they are, as they are, but also to seek deeper connections to their bodies, minds and breath. She guides her students through mindful movements, incorporating her love of music and providing meaningful messages through themed classes. She teachers a variety of formats including Vinyasa Flow, Power, Yin, Slow Flow, Restorative, Ashtanga Remix, and Aerial Yoga.
Mila believe that yoga is not something you do; it is a part of who you are, and that a quiet mind, an open heart, and deep breaths serve us beautifully, both on and off the mat.
Lois is the founder and owner of Sonda Yoga. She took her very first yoga class in 1999, and from that moment on fell in love with yoga. Since then she has studied extensively. She completed her first 200-hour teach training in 2003 and fell in love with Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga. Lois completed her first 500-hour training in 2005, and most recently completed another 300-hour teacher training in 2019. It's safe to say she loves to be a student.
