About The Teacher

Mishel is an Ecuadorian-born & NYC-bred healer. She is the founder of La Dea Vita, a lifestyle company based on exquisite self care.

She's been teaching Bikram Yoga in New York City since 2007, and has studied with senior teachers throughout the world. Her teaching philosophy is simple: take deep breaths and slowly allow your body to open.

Mishel also teaches Qoya, a women-only class that combines yoga, sensual movement, and dance. At the core of this class is the premise that if it feels good, then you are doing it right.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
