Let’s start from the beginning. Hey! My name is Monique and WELCOME, this is my journey to finding myself through the old discipline from India called Yoga. Back in my twenties is when I first started to feel my emotions, emotions received through interactions from my family, work, personal and romantic relationships…and let me tell you I FAILED.
I joined the military at the young and ripe age of 20 years old, not knowing what I wanted to do with my life, but at the same time knowing that I had to do something. After I joined the military my ‘adulting’ went from 0-100 in what felt like seconds. I went from moving away from my family, moving overseas to Italy, getting pregnant, getting married and then divorced all within 4 years. You can imagine my emotions were everywhere with everyone and sadly enough I never gave them space to be seen or heard, and that pattern was done for quite some time, let’s say 10 years.
Fast forward to that estimated 10 years later, I took my first solo trip to Estes Park, Colorado and there I realized, I’m not living my true self. Once that realization came I literally said out loud on top of the Rocky Mountains so God himself could hear me, “I’m READY – TRANSFORM me.”
This was a little over 3 years ago, that was when I took my practice of yoga from the physical piece to saying to myself “Oh, I DO have a heart”. I’ve transformed in almost every dimension of my life – my career, parenting, in interpersonal relationships with my family, friends and romantic partners – and still transforming today. At the end of my Yoga Teacher Training, I felt the transformation tap into a deeper level of myself and knew that I had to buckle my seatbelt and enjoy this ride.
Time is Now
So, here we are – welcome again – through this platform, my intention is to be transparent on how I’m living and learning through this yogic life that I’ve built for myself, in hopes that it touches your soul and helps you transform.
Many Blessings to you, my Beautiful Friends <3
