Monique's classes are held with a therapeutic intention. Her work as a Somatic (body-oriented) therapist naturally informs the language and sequencing of her classes. She believes that yoga is an opportunity to listen deeply to the natural intelligence of our bodies, and learn to inhabit ourselves in new ways. Through this more integrated place, we discover authenticity in being and expression. Monique completed her 500 hour teacher training at Yoga Tree in San Francisco, and mentored privately for several years with Dina Amsterdam (founder of InnerYoga). Monique also has a private psychotherapy practice at Zazen, where she is enjoying deepening the Somatic work with her clients.
