Karina Mirsky's Statement of Dharma

My purpose is to uplift and empower individuals, and reduce suffering in the world through my thoughts, speech and actions. I am committed to embodying a healing presence, and serving others with my unique gifts and the wisdom gained through my experiences. I actively seek and aim to surrender to the highest way. I own my missteps and adjust accordingly. I heal, grow and thrive in my own life because I practice what I teach. I aim to contribute the vibration of self-awareness and self-care to the Collective. May my awareness, be your awareness. May our awareness, heal the world. 

Yoga Mindset Coaching Mission


Yoga Mindset Coaching™ aims to provide yoga teachers, and holistic therapists, and coaches with innovative skills in which they can develop or elevate a Private Yoga and Coaching business. We aim to support the personal growth of each unique individual, so that they can guide others from their own direct experience with the benefits of YMC. We are committed to being both ethical and equitable with our unique integration of Parts Work™ and ParaYoga®. We aim to uphold the ethics outlined on both the Yoga Alliance and Internal Family Systems websites. We also aim to create access for underserved and under-privileged groups through YMC Equity Scholarships.

Equity Scholarship Program


We are committed to creating access for underserved populations. It's important for people within these populations to have skilled helpers and healers representing, and actively serving these groups.

Equity Scholarships are awarded to:

  • People of Color (any identity or ethnicity) 

  • People who identify as LGBTQAI+ 

  • People with Disabilities 


Each YMC Basic Training Program has, two 50% Equity Scholarships available for applicants who belongs to one of the groups above. If registrations surpass 12 participants, a third scholarship becomes available.


You might be wondering, why two scholarships at 50%? Why not one full ride scholarship instead? 


Research shows that humans value what we invest something monetary into. We show up to get our money's worth. This investment of attention yields the best results –and we want you to succeed! Karina is also committed to leading by example. By charging something for her time and energy, she teaches us to value our own, and know it's okay to be paid for our investments and labor. Most people don't actually want a hand out anyway, they genuinely want a to contribute something in exchange. So we think 50% give and 50% receive makes it an equitable partnership.


To apply for a scholarship, please complete this form at least one month prior to the start date of any training.
