Monica Kessler, e-ryt 200, yoga and Aerial yoga, TRX Suspension Trainer

Fi​tness and physical activities have always been a part of Monica's life.  In her senior year of high school, Monica suffered lower back trauma in a car accident.  After years of chronic issues, Monica turned to her personal trainer, Walt Nesbit and also a yoga class at the gym she was attending. With a desire to learn more about this beautiful practice, Monica arrived at Donna Dyer's Yoga H'om. It was there, that the 'yoga' she had been practicing transformed from being just a physical exercise, into a complete mind, body healing and life changing experience. Knowing how greatly yoga affected her life, Monica knew in her heart that she had to share this practice with others and enrolled into Donna's 200-hour teacher training program in 2011.  The desire to learn and share yoga takes Monica to many places. In 2015, Monica tried her first Aerial Yoga class at a Wanderlust Festival.  At that moment, she found her love for FLIGHT and FREEDOM which also relieved her of lower back pain.  In July of 2016, Monica became a certified Aerial Yoga Instructor, through Jayne Bernasconi, from Yoga on York.  Monica is also a TRX Suspension Trainer which expands her knowledge of teaching suspension for strength and balance. Monica's intention is to uplift and send you on your way to a better day. She will continue to grow and expand her knowledge by studying under her master teachers.
