Monique's approach to teaching yoga is therapeutic, supporting a more integrated sense of being. She offers a deeply nourishing practice to support physical, emotional and mental well-being. These therapeutic yoga practices include yin yoga, mindful alignment-based flow, meditation and pranayama (breath work).

Monique's practice in Somatic Psychotherapy also informs the language and intention of her classes. She invites students to use their practice on the mat to listen deeply to the wisdom of the body to awaken to higher consciousness. Her deepest intention in teaching is to create a safe space for self-inquiry and healing through the body.

As Monique has experienced personally in her 15 years of practice, yoga can support us in developing a more loving and integrated experience with ourselves. This inner work can then support us in our relationships and meeting life's inherent challenges from a more grounded, connected and authentic place.

Monique has immense gratitude for her teachers on the path of yoga, meditation and psycho-spiritual inquiry: Sarah Powers, Dina Amsterdam, Maritza, Nikki Estrada and Adyashanti. To learn more about Monique's offerings, visit: www.moniquehaan.com.
