Vinyasa, Yoga Basics, & Restorative

Monica Lewis


Monica teaches Yoga Basics at Danja. Her teaching reflects yoga as a practice, not performance or perfection, so there’s space to explore, play, and push boundaries. She offers students an introduction to yoga and invites to look within, building self-awareness and compassion for self and others. Her personal practice has changed her life in infinite ways – most of all, it has helped her feel more lovingly situated within herself.

Monica is a 200-hour registered Yoga Teacher and has been teaching yoga for over two years. Teaching yoga brings her great joy. She loves to see students feeling that sense of ahhhh and relaxation as they finish class.

Outside of teaching Yoga, Monica has been a teacher fin the Pickerington School District for over 20 years. During the past several years she's taught Gifted Education. She received her Gifted Certification from the University of Cincinnati, 4-5 Endorsement from Notre Dame College, Ungdergraduate and Graduate Degees from The Ohio State University.

When not teaching, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, taking in the beauty of nature, hiking, riding her bike, and relaxing with her dog.
