Hola, I’m Monica
I connected with yoga on a trip to India, which led me to make important changes in my life. In 2013, I completed my Yoga Teacher Training and since then, I have devotedly studied and practiced Iyengar Yoga, a method focused mainly on technique and body alignment.
After a few years and some minor injuries, I began to question the benefits of yoga in general as a practice mostly based on stretching and repetitive static poses. I started to feel that there is not an ideal alignment for every body, that some postures didn’t fit me well and the rigidity of the system didn’t allow me to do things differently. I sought answers and found them in a different environment. It was then I decided to train in anatomy and biomechanics and I certified with Dr. Andreo Spina as a FRC Mobility Specialist.
Incorporating functional movement into my practice has been a game changer for me: it helps me to prepare the poses more safely, to feel stronger and more agile so I can move better not only during the class but also in my daily life.
I want the same for you.
