Monica first came to yoga as the result of a back injury. She was stunned to find that yoga not only healed her back (quickly!) but also transformed her mind, heart, spirit, relationships and entire life – all for the better!

She completed her 500–hour certification at Svaha Yoga studio in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Her magnificent teachers there are of the Jivamukti lineage but have also had strict Iyengar training, leading to a rich and diverse yoga education. She has also studied Anusara, Baptiste power yoga and Ashtanga. In addition, Monica recently completed a two-year Yoga Therapy training at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. In this training she studied (and continues to study) with several of the finest teachers in the Krishnamacharya/Desikachar lineage.

Monica is also a professional musician/Bhakti yogini and is currently working on a mantra  (musical Sanskrit chanting) CD. She has appeared for the past 3 years at Bhakti Fest, the “Woodstock of Yoga” with her friend and colleague, Masood Ali Khan.

With over 800 hours of teacher training, her sense of wonder and gratitude toward her students and the practice of Yoga is richer than ever. Yoga has miraculously transformed her life and she is deeply grateful to be teaching and enthusiastically sharing this miracle with others!
