Iyengar Yoga with Monique Woolls-King
In Episode 21, Tarryn sits down with Iyengar Yoga Instructor, Monique Wools-King to explore the style of Iyengar, its history and what makes it unique to other styles. We discuss prop usage and alignment, as well as explore topics of injuries and exploring slower styles of yoga.
Monique has a background in Architecture and Sustainable Development, and has completed degrees in both. Since 2015, Monique has changed her career radically from Architecture to teaching yoga full time because she believes in the powerful effects of yoga on the body and mind. She believes that it is in the alignment that one finds true freedom in yoga, and that alignment can help one go much deeper into one’s yoga practice. She is a qualified Iyengar yoga teacher; a certification process that takes 6 years to complete. She is currently leveling up her certification in the Iyengar method.
Monique’s classes are motivating, inspirational and disciplined. Each class you will find new muscles and spaces in the body that gives you a feeling of lightness after each class. Monique guides you through each pose, giving a feeling of containment and confidence in the poses, while inspiring you to go deeper into them. Monique helps you improve your alignment and posture making you feel like you’ve walked away from a personal chiropractic session. Her passion for teaching and sharing her love of Iyengar yoga is contagious and wonderful.
