Monique Minahan GatherOCT_2017_178.jpg

monique minahan

Monique started practicing yoga in 2008, six years after her husband died, and credits the practice of yoga with taking her from surviving to thriving. She believes that everything is sacred and nothing is sacred, including yoga. This allowed her to step away from her roots in Anusara and Iyengar, and explore yoga biomechanics and movement science. This radically changed her practice and her teaching.

Libby Carstensen

Creating a strong container to hold change is the first step. Libby found Kundalini, the yoga of awareness, as the answer. In 2017 she studied with Kia Miller and completed Kia’s Radiant Body teaching program. Libby is also studying Kundalini as taught by Yogi Bhajan at the Kundalini Research Institute. Her classes bring the yoga of awareness as a catalyst to remove inner barriers as we increase our own radiance. It’s perfect for beginners and anyone wanting to tap into their own inner lighthouse. You’ll be challenged, you’ll find strength you didn’t even know you had, and you’ll find your ability to navigate life improves.
