I love Align & Shine! I can’t recommend this class highly enough! I float out of the class feeling 5 inches taller. I seriously needed to adjust my rearview mirror when I got in the car last week!
Mirja uses visualizations that enable me to activate muscles and subtle movements I otherwise wouldn’t tap into.
Her keen knowledge of anatomy combined with her ability to lead participants more deeply into the mind-body connection creates a unique class that is both relaxing and healing.

For 20 years, I’ve had shoulder pain that would often trigger tension headaches. I haven’t had a single headache since I started taking Align & Shine. My shoulders feel so much better.

This first class was perfect, I feel my chest opening and my breath deeper. I have cleared my schedule to attend this class weekly. You are a perfect teacher, using humor and gentle guidance for correct posturing.

    Align & Shine is a multi-level exercise class. It works for beginners, athletes, and everyone in between. The only prerequisite is that you can lie on your back for 15 minutes.
    The exercises we do are subtle, more like yoga than weight-lifting. Although you will feel them and get benefit from your first class, it takes more than one class to fully master them. But, like yoga, they go deep and produce profound change.

Chronic tension on the side of my neck gone in one class! And I loved the tapping.
