I teach nervous-system-intelligent classes that allow us to leave class more resourced and connected to our inner and outer supports. As a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner® and trauma-informed yoga teacher, I blend Somatic Experiencing® with yoga to support nervous system responsiveness and resilience.
My classes are grounded in choice and the science of human healing and connection. You can expect movement that is self-paced and accessible and somatic inquiry that is curious and compassionate.
"Monique’s class has provided me with the space to reconnect to myself. After significant trauma and loss, my nervous system was in need of serious care.
Learning to hear myself in a deeper way and doing that through autonomous connection to my physiology has changed my life.
Monique is a caring, safe and trauma-informed teacher. She leads the class AND still gives space for modification. Grateful for mornings on the porch! "
"The containers Monique creates are so rare and profoundly special. I have been coming to her class for over a year as a devotional practice every week because it is a place where I can show up exactly as I am and move as my body needs without judgement.
By the end of her class, I feel so connected to my sensations and emotions through her beautiful inquiries. There is an art to the way she teaches and the way she holds space for the complexities of being human.
I didn't really enjoy yoga before coming to her class. I never felt like I had permission to move the way my body needed to move if that was different from what was being taught. I had a lot of trauma in fact, from classes where my body was made to be wrong for what it couldn't do.
This has been a place of safety for me to come back home to my body and find what feels good for me. I truly wish that every human could experience a place like this with so much permission and safety. "
"I leave each class feeling more connected to myself and to the people around me. That sounds simple, but the feeling is truly profound.
Monique always prioritizes individual needs over trying to fit the mold of a certain ideal."
