Your prenatal yoga teacher
Monica has been practicing Hatha Yoga since her early teens with a Balinese monk under the Ananda Marga program. In 2009, her completion of a 100hours Vinyasa Teacher Training course with GreenpathYoga under the tutelage of Clayton Horton and Mo Ching Yip certified her to teach officially. That same year, she co-founded FLOW Surf Yoga Samba Weekend Retreats Inc. with two other partners. Since then Monica has been conducting classes at local yoga studios like Beyond Yoga, Bahay Kalipay in Palawan and yoga retreats in various parts of the Philippines and Asia.
Her commitment to mindful parenting led her to take further personal training in Prenatal Yoga and pursued Post-Natal Yoga under Dr. Jean Byrne. As a mother, she understands that women go through many transitions in life that could lead to stressful situations. With the help of yoga, women are able to ease into these transitions with grace. Not only is Monica a breastfeeding advocate, she also helped generate consciousness for gentler birth options in the Philippines when she voiced out her natural VBAC waterbirth at her blog www.birthingbeyond.blogspot.com
