Monique’s yoga journey began at a Toronto Parks and Rec class in 2001. After feeling the energized, yet calm state she had after a long savasana, she fell in love. She started taking classes at Modo (Moksha) Yoga but the real hook was when she became part of the volunteer program. Modo became her new home and becoming a teacher seemed like a natural progression. After completing her Modo Teacher Training in 2005 she taught in Toronto for 4 years, and also had a wonderful experience teaching abroad in Taiwan. In 2009 Monique moved out to Vancouver to help open the first Modo studio in this city (Kits location!). What a great journey it has been meeting an amazing community of sweaty yogis out on the West Coast. She believes yoga can be a beautiful practice in patience, acceptance, and breaking down boundaries we set for ourselves. Monique is now the owner of Modo Yoga East Van, and is a cherished partner & mentor for us here in North Van. Outside of yoga Monique loves exploring her East Van neighbourhood and seeking out the best Chai Latte in this city! See you in the hot room!
