Monique Pickering began her yoga journey while pregnant with her first child eight years ago. Yoga is now an inseparable part of Monique’s life, and she thrives on sharing her knowledge with students of all ages.
Inspired by how yoga movement can change people’s health and overall life, Monique earned certification and began work as a Les Mills BodyBalance instructor. While teaching this fitness regime, which combines Yoga, Pilates, and Tai Chi, she strived for a deeper understanding of the benefits that yoga in particular can bring to the body.
Today, Monique tailors her attention to detail and precise method of teaching structural alignment to each of her specialized small-group and private classes.
