The practice of yoga continues to teach us so much about ourselves through conscious breath, body and mind awareness. As we align our bodies on the mat, take in the instructor's queues, listen to our breath, we give attention to our inner dialogue, building up our mental strength through meditation, clarity and relaxation. At Live Lotus, the goal of yoga is not result driven nor does it imply a desired state of strength and flexibility; while all of those components are great benefits, yoga is a life long practice of self-awareness. It is a discipline of self-love and acceptance in it's simplest form. This is the reason why we've built Live Lotus.
For those who want to deepen their practice or want to become a yoga teacher, we introduce to you LOTUS UNIVERSITY, a 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training program recognized as a registered yoga school by Yoga Alliance.
We are humbled and excited to launch our first ever Yoga Teacher Training program this Fall, with our very own Live Lotus instructor and Program Director, Monique Wright-Gory. Lotus University commenced on August 20, 2016.
Over the past several years Monique has dedicated herself to the daily practice of yoga, which has transformed her life both mentally and physically. Becoming a Yoga Teacher has allowed her to guide classes with a humble and soulful heart. Most cannot help but feel this through her movements and artistic playlists. As a practicing yogi, full time Yoga Teacher and Director of Lotus University, Monique is excited to share this and her love of yoga with the community.
"Together we continue creating a mystical space for others to find their inner peace, strength and beauty."
- Monique Wright, E-RYT
