Monica has been practicing yoga for 20 years. She started her practice in Tokyo with Rajay Mahatni with the intention of alleviating her scoliosis and related problems. Very quickly she discovered that the benefits surpassed her expectations of physical comfort.
She continued with an Ashtanga practice in London for a few years and then deepened her postural knowledge of alignment and asanas through an Iyengar practice in Paris where she was lucky to have access to the ʻspecial caseʼ group ( 3 teachers per student). She has been fortunate to take classes led by Corinne Biria, Faeq Biria (Blacons), André Rivoire and Maryam Askari to name a few.
Monica is extremely happy to be able to share the multifaceted benefits of practicing asanas and integrating yoga into every day life. Accredited with a 200h Yogaworks diploma taught by Céline Antoine, Monica teaches a mixture of the Ashtanga and Iyengar style, taking the time to detail alignment but keeping a regular flow.
She has attended a Pranayama intensive workshop by Master Sudari Tiwari and tries to encompass all aspects of yoga philosophy within her classes with the simple aim of moving towards a better state of body, and mind. Monica also has a deep understanding of the body thanks to her ʻTherapeutic and Swedish Massageʼ Diploma from the ʻSchool of Integrative Therapiesʼ in New Jersey.

“To Whom It May Concern:
I have been touring for about 22 years with many different bands (Dave Matthews, Tracy Chapman, Primus, etc etc...)
The masseuse I had today for The Weepies show at The State Room in SLC, Danielle, was perhaps one of the best I have ever had.
Everything from her disposition to her skills. My entire band and crew adored her.
I felt it was important to tell how amazing this woman was, and how she brightened our day.
