RYT 200 & Aerialist
Monique’s initial attraction to yoga was through the asanas for physical fitness & strength. As she began to fall in love with yoga & the way her body began to feel, her heart began to soften & open. Through meditation & practice of yogic principles, her mind began to become calm, still, & present. When she discovered the fusion of this beautiful practice with the use of the aerial hammock, she was instantly hooked! As she already loved to fly as a silk’s aerialist.
The combination of weightlessness & the ability to release & access muscles she could not ordinarily access on the mat was completely empowering & enlightening. She knew that she had to share this feeling. She had to share "the bliss of the release" with anyone who showed even the slightest interest in aerial yoga. She became certified in aerial yoga in March of 2021 at Atomic Lotus in Pinellas Park, Florida. Monique is completing her 200 RYT from the Lotus Pond in Tampa, Florida in December of 2021.
She looks forward to flying with you & sharing "the bliss of release". Namaste
