Monique began practising yoga in 2002. By 2004, she was teaching several popular styles. Meanwhile, the philosophy behind the physical practice had lit a fire within. She continued searching for an authentic teaching, in which the theory and the practical were truly aligned, and connected to the original purpose and ancient wisdom of Yoga.
Monique discovered Shadow Yoga in 2008, which was everything she was looking for and more. She has been studying with Karen Watson at Islington Yoga since then. In 2010 she began attending courses with Zhander Remete and Emma Balnaves, the founder and director of Shadow Yoga respectively. She continues her studies with them, attending courses in Shadow Yoga and Nrtta Sadhana every year.
After a three year teaching apprenticeship with Karen Watson, Monique was fully qualified to teach Shadow Yoga in February 2014. She is currently teaching Shadow Yoga Basics, Level 1 and Level 2 courses. As soon as she has enough students able to progress, she looks forward to introducing Level 3 and Nrtta Sadhana.
