Monica Shumway

RYT 200
I began practicing yoga in 2010 and at the time I was recovering from physical injuries. I quickly discovered that yoga was something that not only helped me physically but also helped my mental and spiritual connection. I started my 200 hour yoga teacher training as a way to further my own practice. However, I soon realized the rewards of teaching and sharing this amazing practice with others. I am a mother of two little boys, who light up my world. In my free time, I love to travel, dance, spending time in the outdoors, creating music and spending time with my family.


Monica Shumway instructs the following:
  • Patience: Yin Trigger
  • Beginner to advanced. 
     
    Patience: Yin Trigger is the perfect complement to your Yang pursuits, which emphasize muscular effort and repetition. In this 60 minute class you'll hold poses for longer periods of time, typically 3-5 minutes each. This practice is slower paced and props may be used to focus on trigger points. You will target and alleviate tightness in deep connective tissue, ligaments, and joints. The slower pace of Yin also allows for a more meditative approach where you can calm that monkey mind. The room is not heated.

  • Journey: 60
  • Beginner to advanced. 

    This all-levels hot yoga class is accessible to everyone, beginners to experienced students alike. Set to music in a room heated up to 102 degrees and at 40 percent humidity. This set-sequence class uses functional commands to direct students in and out of postures, blending the elements of true Hatha yoga and Ashtanga-inspired vinyasa power flow. You will work the entire body, toning your muscles, promoting a healthy weight, and reducing stress. This class is a journey you can take daily to improve yourself physically and mentally. Classes are 60 minutes.


  • Strength: Yoga Sculpt
  • Beginner to advanced. 

    This class combines core-building yoga principles, high-intensity interval training, and cardio. This class is challenging, but there is no impact so it is safe for all fitness levels. Modifications are given to accommodate all students. Conducted in a heated room, this high-energy class builds strength and endurance. Props may be used. This class will help you build a stronger core; create long, lean muscles; increase flexibility, and burn fat. Room is heated to 95 degrees.
