Monique traveled the world for almost 20 years, as a cabin attendant for the Dutch airline KLM. She feels very grateful and fortunate for all the countries she has visited, and all the wonderful and unique people she was able to meet from different cultures and backgrounds. Also, to travel is to take a journey into yourself...and she and her family did!
Summer 2012 they were relocated from the Netherlands to the US, and settled down in Larchmont, NY. Together with her husband Steven, their son Stijn (2002), and their daughter Evy (2004), (now teenagers) she's really enjoying living in Westchester.
Trying to live a healthy, active, and balanced life she was naturally drawn to yoga. She gained her YTT200hr from Lila Tandava Yoga Teacher Training at Tovami Yoga in Mamaroneck NY, and received her children's yoga teaching certification through Karma Kids Yoga in NYC. She's very enthusiastic about introducing kids of all ages to yoga and mindfulness...with a big smile and lots of positive energy!
