Miya Kishi Dunets

meditation teacher
Yoga, meditation and music have always been a part of Miya Kishi Dunets’ life, but she started deepening her practices in 2016 when living in Hong Kong and feeling stuck. “In exploring, committing to and sharing meditative practices, I rediscovered joy, community, creativity and, most importantly, a growth mindset and the resiliency needed to shift my perspective, live into my purpose, and help others to do the same,” she says. Miya is a yoga and meditation teacher, sound worker, Reiki practitioner, and singer-songwriter with more than 500 hours of training in yoga, meditation, breathwork and sound. Her offerings include private, group and corporate meditation (mindfulness and metta/loving kindness practices) and sound sessions (single- or multi-instrument treatments, vocal toning and mantra sessions, sound baths). She believes that through commitment and constant practice, we can find courage, compassion, resilience and grace.
