Mia Togo, Life Coach and Yoga Teacher, Yoga Teacher Trainer and Mentor, grew up with a love of equestrian which taught her in roaming the great outdoors that the world is so much bigger than herself. From competing in equestrian to becoming a professional dancer in Los Angeles, she fostered grit and determination allowing herself to live a very free life. However, she also found that all the success in the world could not power through some of her biggest losses, deepest wounds, negative self-talk, and ultimately her shadow side.
Working with a very gifted coach for many years (since passed, Mona Miller) she gathered the tools necessary, along with a personal and professional commitment to her yoga practice, to gain further clarity and stand in her truths.
We all have a shadow side. It doesn’t go away. We all have areas of life that are affected by it. It is also to be cherished as it is what gives contrast to our bright lights. So finding tools to manage what our other practices may not always cut through can be the key to following the light.
Working with Mona Miller, and continuing that same work day-to-day, she found her path to true freedom. Success on the outside often does not equate to success on the inside. All the travel and clothes, accolades and certifications, and athletic, business and artistic accomplishments in the world can only bring so much freedom. Why should you settle? #SessionIt
