Mia Soehn has been involved in the Health and Fitness Industry since 1989, as a personal trainer, fitness leader and manager of several facilities. In 1997 she competed in the Body Max Building Classic and soon after sustained injuries from a car accident, which led her to a career in Pilates for recovery. In 2001, Mia became a certified STOTT PILATES® Instructor, requiring her to learn over 500 exercises in mat, reformer, cadillac, chair, and barrel work at all levels. In 2005 Mia was invited to become a Mat and Reformer Instructor Trainer for Merrithew Health and Fitness™. She continues to add to her repertoire, and has recently completed certifications in ZEN•GA® and Total Barre®. Mia has also studied and practiced other modalities such as Thai Yoga Massage, Yoga Fusion, and she is a Level 2 Reiki Practitioner. Mia has rehabilitated herself back to health from several injuries including an ACL repair, carpal tunnel syndrome and other setbacks. This allowed her to gain greater knowledge and understanding of the body, and she enjoys helping others in their personal healing experience. Mia has worked in the past as a Chiropractor’s Assistant, where she learned the importance of a healthy functioning spine and nervous system. She currently works as an Optometrist’s Assistant, which has also added to her knowledge of a healthy body.
