About Malissa

Malissa Whited- Owner/Teacher of Mindful Movement

Malissa Whited stepped on her mat over 2 decades ago.  It wasn’t something she was really looking for, but Yoga found her in the most serendipitous way.  In the midst of her chaotic life, Yoga was the moment of peace, surrender, and inner wisdom that she didn’t even know she needed.  It has become a beautiful, guiding force in her life.  Its teachings have transformed her through the years, leading her to see more love, compassion, light, and beauty in others, the world, and herself.  She is grateful everyday for its ability to break her down and show her the abundant blessings that God provides in life.  Its calling has inspired her to share it with others.   Her practice is an eclectic fusion of therapeutic yoga, vinyasa yoga, and Tantra Yoga. Her classes are educational, created with a therapeutic focus and are breath centered.  She shows multiple levels in her classes to allow her students to manifest an optimal experience in their minds, bodies, and hearts.
