Monica is passionate about helping and teaching children because she remembers her own childhood so vividly and fondly. Much of her adolescence was centered around Figure Skating. She competed in both local and internarnational competitions for eight years, won several medals and performed in skating show tours.It wasn’t until she was diagnosed with Scoliosis (a sideways deviation of the spine) that she realized her path in life would have to bend a little too. She had already been practicing yoga for years as part of her athletic training, but yoga became a more profound part of her lifewhen she started using it to ease both the physical and emotional pains of her condition. Monica is a certified mini yogis yoga teacher and is also certified in Pre-natal/Post-natal yoga, and Yin Yoga. She is currently completing the Advanced 500-hr certification through Yoga Tree San Francisco.
yoga is a gift
It is an uplifting, noncompetitive, mind-expanding, and fun way for children to build strength, spirit, and self-esteem.
mastering the ancient art of being a kid!
"[The teacher training] was an inspired and exquisite time. I look forward to sharing all the wonderful tools and joyful movement with all my little yogi stars and their parents. The whole world needs more mini yogis!!!"
