Mimi Rieger

Mimi Rieger has been practicing yoga since 1998 and has been teaching for over twelve years. Her physical journey began with ballet at the age of four through her teens and progressed to martial arts and yoga in her twenties to the present day. Mimi is passionate about her wellness exploration and her teaching encourages others to seek their most powerful and evolved selves. Through the practice of yoga and the evolution of the mind/body connection, students will find a greater sense of self and confidence on the mat by taking their physical practice to the next level. A constant seeker, Mimi is consistently studying with her teachers and traveling to trainings, intensives, and retreats to further her knowledge of yoga and her passionate wellness journey. You can find Mimi at many DC, Virginia, and Maryland area studios and teaching workshops, trainings and festivals on a national and international level, as well as conducting her own 200-hour teacher training. She is honored to be an Ambassador for Lululemon Athletica, MeSheeky Wear, SweetGreen, and TripTribe. She is featured in many health publications and is a contributor to local and national media outlets. Mimi is registered as an E-RYT through Yoga Alliance and received her yoga certification in 2003 at the Ashtanga Yoga Center in Washington, DC. In 2005, she became the first certified Budokon® teacher in the area and is the Regional Director of Budokon® Yoga for Budokon® International. In 2009, she received her Progressive Ashtanga Yoga certification and in 2010 received her Rocket Yoga certification. Mimi teaches with a strong yet practical manner encouraging students to push forward, explore and progress past existing practices and barriers in their physical paths. Mimi teaches a variety of classes; all are based on powerful, dynamic movement with creativity and compassion at the helm. Full body connectivity is paramount in Mimi’s teaching as she invites students to find balance and build strength as they flow through mindful, graceful transitions. Classes are based on the Ashtanga Yoga series with a strong alignment foundation and offer students more advanced variations through her Budokon influences as they progress through their practice. All students are welcome and each practioner will work at their own level.
