minga celebrates the ability of each person to engage in natural healing processes and to develop a practice of self-care from which optimal health can emerge and blossom. Her greatest desire is to lead others to find the unique practices that will sustain a lifetime of growing awareness, understanding, ability and willingness to attend to all Five Bodies. She approaches all her work with loving kindness and patience for the healing process.
Over the past twenty years she has shared her Five Bodies Healing Method. Based in the ancient philosophy of Vedanta, the structure underlying yoga and much of Eastern thought, Five Bodies Healing work seeks to achieve balance and harmony on all Five Bodies (or koshas): physical, energetic, mental/emotional, psychological/belief systems, and the body of spirit/subtle connections. Using a mixture of movement, education, nutritional recommendations, mindful awareness and dialogue, minga assists students and individual clients in understanding the trouble they have with areas of chronic pain and injury, and helps them find effective ways of releasing stuck energy and rediscovering their wellness – or perhaps finding it for the first time ever.

A joyous and experienced teacher!

Minga is a rare spirit and an amazing teacher. She balances demonstrations with interesting explanations, and ties our practice of yoga into essentials of self-care. I have learned a great deal from her, about yoga and about how our bodies work, which has helped my yoga practice.
She brings a lot of laughter and harmony into class as well. I always leave feeling centered and ready to face the world.

Perfect combination of treating Body & Spirit

Minga Lily is an incredibly warm and caring teacher, who is able to explain concepts and movements from both the specific medical issues being addressed to the chakras that are being influenced. She knows how to use props to help students do their best. She is terrific with work-around poses when you have an injury or physical issue and is very patient with beginners. Absolutely terrific!
