Monica was first introduced to yoga about ten years ago when she discovered Rodney Yee on home video. After moving to Chilliwack she discovered bikram yoga, where she took her first Studio class. Over the years she has been blessed to practice with Leslie and James Ferrier (Bikram Yoga) and Christie Lucia Weightman (Off The Mat Yoga), who each contributed to a strong physical practice with a focus on concentration and alignment. Her practice broadened through the study of yoga philosophy and meditation in an effort to emotionally deal with unexpected changes in life. After being involved in a car accident in 2013, yoga became her primary physical therapy. These experiences set the stage for a desire to learn to heal her own body and to help others regain their own physical and emotional strength through their individual yoga practice. Monica took her 200 Hour teacher training at The Yoga Shala in Paia, Maui with Karin Kuhn and Nadia Toraman in 2014 and her SUP yoga teacher training with Kristy Wright Schell in 2015. Monica’s focus and intention for classes is to encourage students to have a strongly aligned practice, to encourage effective breathing and to promote living yoga, not just doing yoga. Monica teaches Hatha yoga with an Iyengar flavour; her favorite classes to teach are Restorative and SUP Yoga
