Some Yogic writings say that Kundalini Yoga is the fastest way to create the transformation, the elevation and the in-lightenment that people are searching and seeking for.
Kundalini Yoga is called the Yoga of Awareness. It is a dynamic, powerful tool that is designed to give you an experience of your soul.
In Kundalini Yoga we harness the mental, physical, and nervous energies of the body and put them under the domain of the will, which is the instrument of the soul. This technology precisely and consciously combines breath, mudra, eye-focus, mantra, body locks, and postures to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity, and purify the blood. It brings balance to the body, mind, and soul.
Kundalini Yoga is not a religion. When we apply the technology of Kundalini Yoga to our bodies and minds, it has the effect of uplifting the spirit. It is for everyone. It is universal and nondenominational.
Kundalini Yoga is a yoga for householders, for people who have to cope with the daily challenges and stresses of holding jobs, raising families, and managing businesses. It is a path for everyone who wants the skills to cope successfully with the challenges of our times.
I have been practicing Kundalini Yoga for about 12 years and I can honestly say it has completely transformed my life. I have completed my teacher training in 2016 with the intention and passion to share this empowering and transforming technology with everyone. I believe that the breath is the basis of good health and well being, so I put a lot of emphasis on teaching how to breathe properly and how to control the breath to heal, rejuvenate, elevate and balance our emotions.
Monique is passionate about teaching Yin Yoga from a Taoist perspective. That in essence we are no separate from the elements around us.
Yin Yoga with Monique gives you an opportunity to explore each of the five elements, Wood, Water, Metal, Fire and Earth to have an embodied experience to feel the wisdom and potency each element has to offer us.
Yin is a beautiful way to drop inward. To start exploring and navigating through the inner workings of your own state of being.
In a predominantly yang functioning society, the practice of yin allows the space, the time and the environment for you to balance your own inner yin and yang energy.
Monique comes from a background of facilitating 1:1 personal development sessions including reiki, acupressure, talk therapy and more. It is her dharma to be of service in this way and is incredibly passionate, and present with holding space for you.
