"Minta is a wonderful yoga teacher. She is inspired, articulate, compassionate and funny. I especially appreciate the detailed and extremely clear verbal instructions she shares throughout every class. Minta integrates the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of yoga into her teaching in such a way that I feel very 'embodied’ and grounded within myself during and after each of her classes. Attending Minta’s yoga classes has truly been a precious gift for which I am deeply appreciative. “I feel the music singing in my bones!”

"I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Minta in three separate teaching arrangements over the recent three years... This year I chose to hire Minta as my instructional assistant to again help in teaching the 200 hour Yoga Certification course. I was wonderfully supported by her help this year. It was incredibly evident that Minta has remained committed to furthering her own training, building her teaching experience and maintaining a personal practice. I particularly enjoy her confidence regarding postural alignment principals and her ability to adjust and instruct students. She is able to correct their alignment in ways that are physically beneficial but also offer informative teaching opportunities. As a teacher she models great sequencing, clear instruction and simple adaptations to avoid risk. Her personal practice is a beautiful example of body awareness. Students appreciate her approachability and availability to them as individuals and the compassionate nature she brings to the group. I would be eager to work with Minta by my side any day.

"Thanks for the great yoga session last night, I really enjoyed it. My granddaughter did too, I'll bring her to the rest of your 'Learn the Basics' sessions this month, I think she would love an ongoing teen group. I have been practicing yoga for about 13 years (just getting back into it after about a year off) and no one in that time has ever demonstrated Sun Salutations before, so thank you for that."

"Minta, I'm so thankful for you and what you're doing for yourself and our community. I'm thankful for your courage to find yourself and your own path, it's truly inspiring to me. You've helped guide me and open me up to so much more than I thought was out there, so much more than I thought was possible with yoga. I'm thankful for your spirit and your love but most of all, I'm thankful that you've shared that with me and so many other people in our community. It doesn't go unnoticed or unappreciated..."

"Minta is one of the most beautiful woman inside and out that I have met. She is sincerely devoted through her yoga training and practice to benefitting every person she comes in contact with. I always leave her yoga class uplifted and energized. She is very skilled at communicating to different leveled students in the same class, she has a lovely way of organizing the sequence of the asana’s. Attending Minta’s classes my own practice has deepened and improved immensely. I am so grateful that the universe has brought Minta into my life. As a yoga practitioner of 20 plus years I highly recommend for anyone at any level wanting to improve and enhance their yoga practice to attend Minta’s yoga class. With Love and Gratitude, Julia Sanders-Dobos"

"Minta guides you through a gentle, loving and sacred yoga practice. Her genuine kind-hearted nature, enthusiasm and cheerfulness allows for the most wonderful unfoldings to take place in her class. I was working on Urdhva Dhanurasana (wheel pose) a few months ago when I first came to her class… I am now able to do this wonderful backbend pose. Thank you Minta! All of her yoga students are truly blessed to share in her beautiful gifts and the radiant smiles she so easily shares with others. Minta is a gifted yoga teacher who is generous with her time, energy and spirit."

"Minta, I feel so blessed and grateful you have been a part of this journey with me [Satya Yoga 200 Hour Teacher Training]. I have said this before but it is no surprise to me that the universe brought you into my life. And I am so glad it did! You are such an inspiration to me and I have been so lucky to have you as my mentor the past month. Beautiful things and experiences are coming your way and I can't wait to hear where you take your passion and talent. You have so much to give. I hope to have you as a life long teacher. I know you understand me already!"

"It's been many moons since I've practiced at Orcas Mandala, and I'm so grateful to have returned via your class... Walked out feeling amazing! Thank you, Minta."
