I felt really inspired by teachers most of all, because it’s not always easy to be authentic, happy and calm at the same time. Yoga teachers are human and vulnerable too. My goal was to be that someone for students, someone who could be authentic and show their strengths alongside their vulnerabilities, while helping them heal in their own journey.
My wish is to reignite the hearts of those who come to my classes. That they may find inspiration within the potential of their own bodies, as well as the inner courage and strength to walk in the direction of dreams.

I love yoga. I love its physical, mental, subtle, philosophical and spiritual aspects in equal measure. Most people who have a deep love for yoga can identify with the feeling of yoga making a shift in their life-path.
As I embarked on my first teacher training, I was confident my life would change in the direction I already loved: movement and people. I never thought it would propel me with such force into a world where every door seemed open.
Transformation generally happens when we allow change to happen; stepping outside of our comfort zone we begin to grow and learn about ourselves. It won’t happen overnight, but like our asana practice, it is exactly that - a practice in patience and self-discovery.
We ask Power Yoga teacher Mona Godfrey 10 questions to try and discover what inspired her yoga and meditation journey. Mona arrives to each class full of vivacity and wisdom that she shares generously with anyone who attends her class.
Yoga is the union of mind and body. When you come to a yoga class or come to practice on your mat it may be the only time that day that you check in with what it feels like to be you. Yoga teaches us to be self aware to connect to the breath and to be in the present moment.
Meditation has been part of the human experience for several thousand years, but it may be now that it is most needed. It's central to improving our quality of life; making us aware of who we are, where we are and what we want from our lives.
