Miki Brotzler RYT200

Miki started her professional career as a classical ballet dancer and then moved on to contemporary dance and dance theatre, performing with the Ballet de Chambre de Hirofumi Inoue (Japan), then with The One Extra dance/theatre Company in Sydney. She then shifted her focus to acting and performed in various productions for Playbox Theatre, Chamber Made Opera, Queensland Theatre Company, Strange Fruit and other companies as well as appearing in several film and TV productions. During her performance career Miki was introduced to Yoga.

Miki has also been active in theatre, multimedia and film production work with Hirano Productions, Experimenta Media Arts and Balcony Films. Miki made her directorial debut with “Call Me Komachi” by Christie Nieman, and since then has directed several productions including “8 Femmes” for the Melbourne French Theatre, and “Picasso’s Women” in which she directed the other performers and performed the monologue of Jacqueline Roque. Miki was the Festival Director of Fast+Fresh (Melbourne) and Associate Producer for Short+Sweet International in 2007-2008, and is also a member of Azuki Beanz, a group of colourful Harajuku-style Japanese gals found entertaining the crowds at various events.

Changing hats, Miki became an IT Developer, Project Manager and now a Business Analyst; but in recent years rediscovered yoga.

This led to her training as a yoga teacher at the Moksha Academy of Yoga (RYS200), qualifying as an RYT200. Initially doing the course to discover more about all that yoga offers, she enjoyed the experience immensely and felt through the comprehensive training that she was ready to teach. Since then, Miki has been working at Moksha Yoga, teaching dynamic and flowing Vinyasa yoga with echoes of her dancing past.  She intends to develop a style with even more integration of contemporary dance and yoga, and also to take on the challenge of teaching yoga in Japanese.
