Monica has been studying yoga since 1998 and began teaching at the age of 18 after her first teacher training with Erich Schiffman.
She has studied with various teachers including Paul Grilley, Sarah Powers, and Kristin Laak. She completed the last teacher training with Zhander Remete and Emma Balnaves of the Shadow Yoga school from 2007-2009, and continues to travel to study with them on an ongoing basis.
She currently regularly studies yoga with Todd Jackson in Portland, OR and helps assist his classes for yoga teachers. Her yoga classes focus on attention to alignment while prioritizing sensation in order to cultivate an intimacy with ones own inner body. She is inspired by the wisdom and potential of the human body and is motivated to share this with others.
Monica is also a licensed Acupuncturist, Qigong instructor, and Biodynamic Massage and Cranio-sacral Therapist.
