Mika Sanfilippo

Mika is a yoga teacher and energy worker in San Francisco. She moves with the wind, wandering the world and living in various places, but she always finds her ground in yoga. She began her yoga journey in 2011 as a curious and dedicated student; the more she practiced, the more it became clear that teaching was the next step. 

She has now been teaching yoga for the past 3 years, using inspiration from the chakras, elements, and subtle energy to guide her classes. Her teaching style is lively and enthusiastic; she encourages her students to bring authenticity to their movement, bearing witness to the beautiful transformation that comes when you simply show up for yourself. She gladly welcomes all levels, and teaches a variety of poses and modifications that are suitable to each student’s needs.

She is a Purusha graduate with a Somatic Yoga Therapy certification, Thai Yoga Bodywork certification, and she is an RYT-500 with Yoga Alliance. She is a level 2 Reiki Practitioner as well. She wholeheartedly believes in a holistic approach to healing, and dedicates herself to learning modalities that target the physical, mental, and energetic layers of the human experience.
She teaches regular Vinyasa and Hatha yoga classes, and volunteers at a reiki clinic once a month. She believes that these ancient practices should be accessible to anyone and everyone. She is a world traveler, avid festival-goer, and ever inspired by nature.
