About Me

I was living outside of Pittsburgh when I went to my first group yoga class, that was over twenty years ago, yet I can remember that savasana like it was yesterday!  From then on I sought out yoga to find wellness, community and grounding for myself.  It went this way for many years, different styles of yoga, studios and teachers.  While living overseas I was introducted to and began practicing yoga inspired by Vanda Scaravelli, this is the practice that opened me to my first of many yoga teacher trainings.  When I’m not teaching I enjoy playing tennis, and taking long walks. I have lived in Oklahoma City Oklahoma, Dallas and Houston Texas, Sewickley Pennsylvania, Calgary Canada, Balikpapan Indonesia, Dubai United Arab Emirates, Kuala Lumpur Malaysia and currently live in my home town of Rapid City, SD.

I am registered with the Yoga Alliance.

What I Teach

  • Integrative Yoga: is a spine centered practice inspired by the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli. Integrative Yoga is about ‘yielding’ in movement to make ‘space’ for the vast, ever present intelligence within.
  • Yin Yoga:  is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures held for longer periods of time, it is a functional practice has its roots in Taoism. Yin is a complement to more active forms of yoga and exercise.
  • Yoga Tune Up®:  is a creative and playful format of self-care and self-knowing devoloped by Jill Miller. It borrows the best practices from yoga, corrective movement and self-massage. Enabling you to explore the bits of you unrevealed and pieces lost in repetition, so you can guide your whole body with more skill in yoga and thru this human life.

Milidi is observant and knowledgeable. She thoughtfully guided me thru poses that targeted my concerns as a mature woman with multiple sports injuries and moved me thru poses that addressed the sticking points in my body.  We adjusted how I sit and I can now meditate in comfort, that is huge for me!”
