About Mia Thomas PT, DPT began her exploration of the body while getting her doctorate in physical therapy at Ithaca College. While yoga did not influence her until after she became a physical therapist it quickly altered her practice inside and outside of the clinic. Yoga began as a form of exercise, but was continued because it was time for Mia to focus solely on her own body and mind and rediscover that connection in a different light. In the winter of 2017 Mia Thomas PT, DPT completed her 200 hour yoga alliance certified teacher training from Rachel VerValin, E-RYT owner of Heart Thread Yoga. In June of 2017 Roam Yoga was created with the intent to make vinyasa flow yoga more accessible to everyone; older adults that may have difficulty getting onto the floor, persons with injuries, or persons with complicated medical conditions.
