teaches Vinyasa Flow Yoga influenced by the Krishmacharya,
Kundalini, and Tantric lineages. She teaches a dynamic class focusing
on uniting the body, breath, and spirit to quiet the mind, open
the heart, and connect to the divine nature within. Classes may
include Yoga philosophy, pranayama (breath control), Kirtan (chanting),
and meditation. A mixed levels class suitable for those who wish
to go beyond the physical aspects of Yoga.
Monica’s studies in Tantra greatly influence her classes as
she invites students to extend the experience of Yoga into daily
life, relationships and service. The Tantric tradition sees the
universe as sacred and unified with Spirit in all aspects of life.
Utilizing the practices of Yoga, one can experience embodiment,
open to the present moment, and allow the love, joy, abundance,
and peace that is already present to manifest itself.
Monica focuses on the entire mind, body, and spirit when developing
a program for clients. Depending on the clients needs, Monica creates
a very personal, effective program that may include any of the following:
Specific Yoga postures and sequences, breath techniques (pranayama),
meditation practice, diet modification and additional exercise prescriptions,
specific reading material, Tantric exercises, and more. The client
has the opportunity to use these ancient practices to experience
transformative and healing benefits that can lead to a deeper connection
to self and Spirit, inner peace, and reach one's fullest potential.
Monica is featured monthly in her column for surfers in Blue Edge
magazine, and leads Yoga/Surf retreats and special classes throughout
the year. Her passion for surfing has influenced her teaching style
to help surfers relieve tension associated with surfing, as well
as building the core body strength and flexibility that is so vital
to extend and enhance the surfing experience.
