Fermina “Mimi” Beauford is a Fitness Industry Professional with over 10 years as a Group Fitness Instructor, and Department Manager in Charlotte, NC. 

Mimi initially began taking Yoga classes, and reading various material to strengthen her understanding of the Yoga life-style.  Realizing how much she enjoyed practicing Yoga, and all of its benefits, Mimi was moved to start on her journey towards becoming a Yoga Teacher. After completing Yoga Teacher Training 200 hours in 2017, she enrolled in a Continuing Education program introducing her to Children’s Yoga. It was during this class that Mimi developed a special interest in Children’s Yoga and went on to complete 95hrs of Children’s Yoga Teacher Training. Her belief in the power of Yoga, and its ability to instill positive awareness, behavior, and self-esteem in children, along with giving them tools to manage anxiety drive Mimi’s passion to teach Yoga to kids at an early age. 

Mimi hopes to teach yoga in schools, and aspires to bring Yoga to kids that otherwise may not have the access, or opportunity to practice it.  She is trained to teach yoga to teens, toddlers, and children with special needs. 

Fermina is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT200) and a Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher (RCYT) with Yoga Alliance.  She currently enjoys teaching yoga, cycle classes, and gardening.
