About Me

Mona McDougall's Charicature Doing Tree PoseI recently received my 200 – Hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Certification from SoderWorld Academy of the Healing Arts in Willowbrook, IL with an emphasis on Anusara Yoga and have over 12 years of experience taking various yoga classes (Hatha, Anusara, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Vinyasa, and Yin).

To date, I have successfully completed the following workshops: Yoga Therapeutics, Thai Yoga Massage, Meditation, Pranayama, Kids Yoga, Chakras & the Anatomy of Energy

My passion for yoga started a few years after a car accident, my physical therapist had recommended that I try yoga to help get my body back into alignment. I bought a cheap yoga VHS tape that I practiced from almost every day for a year before the tape wore out and broke, but by then I was hooked. Yoga has played a huge role in my life ever since.

Yoga inspires and rejuvenates me and I am seeking a job as yoga instructor where I can offer my positive energy to pass this on to my students while leading them towards a stronger connection to their mind, body and spirit.

    Thank you!

    I like the nice uncluttered look of the website.I have just started to learn yoga and I have looked a numerous video presentatations. I find that most yoga instructions are unnecessarily long. From the spare , essential look of your web site I believe your videos will have the same characteristics. Please publish some videos soon.I would like to buy a copy. Good show so far I wish you success..
