Meet the Founder
Myiesha (Mya) Cato - Founder & Executive Director
A yogini, a writer and a muse.
Born in Jacksonville, Arkansas, military-raised, Caribbean-rooted, and internationally-known. Mya Cato is the CEO of Meeyogi, a wellness company providing cross-cultural health education services and expressions of art for communities worldwide. The self-proclaimed trillest yoga teacher prides herself in being true to her practice and keeping it real with the people.
Yoga found Mya in the confusing stages of the beginning of adulthood where mental, physical and sexual abuse were prevalavent in her life. Feeling lost, misguided and trapped, yoga became an avenue to release trauma, fear, doubt and unhealthy relationships.
Mya has worked with various organizations such as the Allstate Foundation, the University of South Florida, the Boys & Girls Club, and the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority to offer yoga and mindfulness events and programs to the Greater Tampa Bay Area. Working with youth, particularly in underserved communities, is how she intends to create change for the future. She’s been featured on Tampa Bay’s Morning Blend, Sarasota’s Suncoast, Bloom TV and countless others with much accreditation for her Trap Yoga Movement that is shifting the trajectory of trap culture.
A deep soul rooted in the ground of creative genius, Mya’s work is centered around the healing arts of movement, mindfulness, meditation, and music. She released her first ebook, The Beginner’s Guide to Yoga, in 2019 to help people learn the basics of yoga. Her project, Shine Ya Light, is a guided meditation intended to help people breathe better, sleep better and be better.
Having organized over 75 yoga events and led thousands of people in the practice of yoga, the wellness entrepreneur is a trailblazer. She is disrupting the industry with a little gangsta and a lot of soul in her cadence.
