With a professional background in both yoga and treatment industry marketing, as well as a personal history of perseverance and recovery, Monique brings a uniquely balanced perspective to her work.
She has been teaching trauma-aware, Psychologically-Informed Yoga ™ in large group and private one-on-one settings since 2006. Keenly interested in the intersection between yoga and behavioral health services, Monique has been published in Addiction Professional Magazine and several other local/national publications. Though not a clinician, she has earned a graduate level certificate in The Clinical Foundations of Trauma from State University of NY, Buffalo, and dedicated much of her life to volunteering in environments that serve disenfranchised or traumatized individuals.
Monique recently launched a Psychologically-Informed Yoga Teacher training program that focuses on serving those in the helping professions. She is also in the process of developing a pilot yoga program which launches this month at the The Shelter for Abused Women in Naples, Florida More about Monique and her work can be found online at Vivasana.net
