Mona Therese is trained in the linage of Krishnamacharya, and her main focus is on breathing, Hatha/Vinyasa Yoga and Meditation. Her fascination of the human being, not only physically, but also mentally and spiritually shines through in her teaching and her own self. Mona Therese started Meditating at age 21 with her first introduction to meditation through TM (Transcendental Meditation). At her first visit to India she was introduced to the practice of Zen Meditation and the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh, and immediately realized she had to explore his teachings more. This desire brought Mona Therese to Plum Village for a long retreat in south of France, an experience which had a great and life changing effect on her, and she took the practice and teachings to heart.
