has been a student at Watsonville Yoga for several years, you may have seen her in a class! Monica lives in Corralitos and has a 260-hour yoga teacher certification: 200 hours in Hatha Yoga and 60 hours in Yin Yoga. She is a student of Juko Holiday, who is an inspirational teacher, community activist and founder of Ease Mountain Yoga in Ben Lomond. Monica started on my yoga teaching journey with the intention to deepen her own personal practice, and to help her obtain skills and knowledge about the yogic philosophy of life and all the wonderful things that practicing yoga can do for our bodies, minds and spirits. Her aspiration is to live an intentional, peaceful and purposeful life and to shared what she has learned with others in community.
Monica is a Native Californian, originally from Southern California. She recently retired and is enjoying spending her time renewing her own yoga practice, and crossing things off her bucket list -such as learning to play the acoustic bass guitar and traveling!
