Monica Munguia

Monica (ERYT200, RYT500, YACEP) has a background that includes exercise physiology, marine biology, zoology, molecular biology, education, and wilderness therapy field guiding to name a few things.  Of her many paths, yoga is the thing that has “stuck” as it brings her more peace, contentment, and joy everyday and continues to help her expand what’s possible and step into her potential, and this is what she wishes to share!

She loves to bridge the gap between her Western & Eastern trainings and blend the physiological, psychological, and spiritual to empower people to use the tools of yoga for more than fitness, but to enhance their lives and realize their unique potential.  

She loves the speed of slow honey, learning to surf, a simple life lived mostly outdoors, life/self experiments, and learning daily as a constant student and explorer of life.  

Adriana is our Italian senior teacher. She lives the cold months in Milan, where she teaches in her yoga school, and the warm months near her Floripa’s friends, where she offers Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Yin Yoga classes.

A lover of nature, animals, land and sea sports, beauty understood as inner and outer harmony, Adriana began teaching fitness in the 80s and has never left the classes since then.

The philosophy of yoga is for her the greatest challenge, but also the most rewarding. It is the missing link that enriches her healthy lifestyle with the wisdom of the ancient masters.

Passionate about anatomy, her approach to yoga is physical, but only in appearance. The physical is intended as a tool to open up to listening, acceptance and respect for oneself and for others.

She has more than 1000 hours of training (RYT 500 certified) but she keeps on studying because she says “Yoga is not like going to school, you don’t learn by taking a diploma, but it is a journey that has a beginning, but never an end. “
