Mona, originally from Germany but living in Spain & India, has been working as a body worker for over 20 years. She is an experienced teacher certified in Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow and Yin yoga. Moreover, she has been practicing as a holistic massage therapist. At her yoga centre at Agonda beach in Goa, India, she has been offering open yoga classes and workshops for the last 8 years. In Asia and Europe she holds retreats, workshops and provides yoga training and immersion. For the past 10 years she has intensively practiced Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow and Yin Yoga and has extended her experience in Anusara, Iyengar, Acro and Hormone yoga through exposure to different mentors in Germany, Spain, and India. She combines the dynamic, sweeping style of Vinyasa Flow yoga with the distinct, slow, and meditative elements of Yin yoga while placing particular attention to both breath and flow of life energy.
“Yang is about doing, yin is about letting go.” It’s all about balance´
To Mona, yoga means to be right here, right now; to surrender to the flow of life; to trust it; and to accept the challenges of it as a great gift. Yoga is far more than the practice of asanas. Rather, it is a philosphy of life, which has brought lots of joy, love, and peace into hers. She seeks to share this experience with her students. Deep relaxation from the very first moment, pure yoga geared to the requirements of each student free from constraints of style or judgements. This is the characteristic of Mona’s practice and teachings, which she conveys with lots of heart, passion, and empathy
