I feel stronger than I ever have and I love the encouragement I constantly get from the trainers and the people I work out with. It’s the positive environment I was searching for and so happy to have found my place!” — Megan K.

“In the spring of 2017, my wife gave me an early birthday gift. A Groupon for 30 days of yoga at MBody. I’ve practiced yoga off and on for over the past several years. From Bikram, to various community centers. I’ve never committed or felt the need to take my practice seriously until I came to MBody. The teachers and classes are awesome! When ownership changed with Leah Green taking over, the environment, people became closer. There’s more community outreach and activities, and more challenging moves/poses in class.
One particular thing that solidified my belief in the practice of yoga was the healing of my chronic back pain. Each morning I would wake up and could barely get out of bed. It would literally take me over an hour to get normal movement to my body due to the pain. When Leah returned from a yoga retreat, she had the class do a new move to help with our back and lower body. And within a few days of continually doing this move, my back pain has stopped!!! I mean no pain whatsoever. No drugs, no over-the-counter medication, or doctor’s visits eliminated my back pain. But my yoga practice did.
MBody Yoga is my “Little Slice of Heaven” when I’m feeling stressed from day-to-day life. I can always roll out my mat and let it all go with some good power yoga.” — G. Newbill

Welcome to Yoga Mix! Our studio opened in the fall of 2011, Owner Nicole was the only teacher, running 10 classes per week on her own and closed on Sundays, so she had a day off with her young family. The studio has grown organically over the years into what it is now. Staying true to the core values, mission, and vision of Yoga Mix, Nicole is so proud of what the studio, YM Team, and community have become.
“One of my greatest lessons of working at Yoga Mix over the last decade is that we are all more alike than we are different. It does not matter who you are, where you come from, younger, older, wiser, we all are dealing with our own versions of ups and downs. When we collectively step on our mats, move and breathe together, we are all the same. We are humans trying to do better, striving to feel good in our mind and body. Choosing to walk out of the studio better than when we walked in.”
Evolving from being the only teacher to having an incredibly diverse team, each with their own unique talents, Nicole now focuses on better serving the studio as a whole. She is constantly working behind the scenes developing new ways to create the best studio environment for the YM community. Whether you’re a seasoned athlete looking to strengthen your skills or a busy mom or dad who needs a moment of peace, yoga is for you. We provide you the tools, time and space to dedicate to you; to shift your perspective; to realize you’re already living your best life. At Yoga Mix we envision a community of people living a happy, healthy, intentional life.

” At 35 years old, and one who didn’t love yoga at all, or working out in general, I walked into Rebel and today it is my second home. Now at 40, I have never felt so good physically or mentally.

“As a busy mom of 3, I knew I needed to stay active to keep up my energy & also set a great example for my kids! I’ve tried working out on my own, but it’s so confusing trying to figure out what works best on which days.
Hiring Dominique from Fit Enough was the best thing I’ve done for myself. She holds me accountable, which is what I love the most! Each week is something new, this helps me from getting bored. Also, she is a mom herself & is so relatable to REAL life! She just gets it & creates a routine for me based on her expertise on what busy mamas need. Highly recommend Dominique!!”
