Mikkala Marilyn Kissi
Mikkala Marilyn Kissi is the founder and the embodiment of Living Yolates.
Her background is a hybrid of multiple educations and experiences within dance, yoga, pilates, nutrition and kinesiology. Living Yolates is a reflection of that and most important, holistic. Mikkala has a degree in Performing Art and Body Control from the London Studio Centre, which is one of Europe’s most renowned dance schools. Mikkala is always developing and searching for new knowledge to be able to teach with renewed energy and joy. In 2010 she took a “brush up” class in Pilates with Birgitte Nymann at DGI, to get an update on the latest developments in Pilates. In 2011 she attended a Paul Dallaghan Yoga Workshop in Thailand, and followed a Yoga and Nutrition course with Sara Granström-Thorsson. In 2012 Mikkala became a yoga instructor with the yoga and meditation guru, Ratheesh Mani at Enzo Yoga House. Mikkala is also educated Body Master with Pheobe Corelli in NYC.
What characterizes Mikkalas teaching is the light and loving energies. She has a special ability to create an uplifted, bobbly joy inside of you and in the surrounding space. She teaches from her heart and has an authentic quality in her presence. Mikkala really connects with her students and who you are and what you need is always in focus. You will learn how to listen to yourself so you will know your specific needs. Classes with Mikkala are a great mix of pure joy, freedom, playfulness, integrity, grounding and power!
Living Yolates is a dynamic universe and always defined by Mikkalas further education, experiences in life and the people she meets. Currently, the focus is on courses and retreats created in collaboration with interesting co-teachers. Her heart beats for the Living Yolates education where new Living Yolates teachers are being educated to spread Living Yolates into the world.

Nestled in the hills of the Saint Augustin valley, Ibiza, lays the peaceful and historic finca, Chettinad. This beautifully restored, 400-year-old residence combines traditional Spanish architecture with modern comforts, all in sun-drenched splendor.
Enjoy yoga twice a day in the spectacular geodesic dome overlooking the valley below. Indulge in an Ayurvedic massage under the olives trees, take a walk around the beautiful grounds, or simply unwind by the pool with your favourite book.
Each meal at the retreat is a true celebration. Sarah Britton's approach to food is creative, fresh and vibrant, and her passion is bringing out the natural flavours in food, while preserving their precious nutrients. Meals at the retreat will be prepared by local plant-based chef Delores Wielzen. Her menu, inspired by My New Roots recipes, will be completely vegetarian with plenty of raw, vegan and gluten-free options to suit all dietary needs. Local, and organic ingredients will be used whenever possible. We will dine outside in dappled sunlight, serenaded by the soothing sounds of wild Ibiza!
