Thanks for Your Support

  • Monica’s teaching is more than just about learning the mechanics of yoga. Hers is an integrative practice that helps to heal your mind, body and soul. She has a capacity for empathy unlike any other person I’ve known. She puts all of her emotion into everything she does- from her teaching to her cooking. Like all of us, she has no doubt been through struggles of her own. She has taken these challenges, however, and turned them into growth. She has become a spiritual guide to many, myself included.

  • I came to Monica for yoga but I left with a better understanding of my relationship to my Self and my body. Monica has a gentle and present way of getting you in your body and relating to it in ways that allow you to let go and strengthen. I’ve loved the tidbits she gives to practice at home. I’ve come to enjoy my practice, strengthen my presence, and heal my body as a result. I truly enjoy any class she teaches. Thank you Monica!

  • Monica worked with my special needs students of various levels. She is warm, and caring to the students. She always adapts to their level and follows their lead. They shine with her.
