Monica’s love affair with all things yoga began with her very first breath in her very first class. With the encouragement of her teacher, she began to explore whatever piqued her interest: mantra, mudra, meditation, the chakras, philosophy, Reiki, aromatherapy, Ayurveda, qi gong, tai chi, reflexology…..the list goes on and on. As her practice deepened, Monica began to notice a new strength, balance, and flexibility in her life, not just physically, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually as well. In 2011, she transformed her love of learning into a love of teaching and obtained her 200 hour certification from Transcend Yoga. Monica brings a beginner’s heart and a lighthearted reverence for all yoga traditions to her practice and teaching. And, just as she was encouraged by her first teacher, Monica encourages her students to seek their truest path to their truest Self with an open and joyous heart.
