My name is Monica Carroll and I am a yoga/fitness/nutrition instructor-coach. My philosophy has always been a common sense approach to mental and physical well-being. My journey has lead me to approach fitness and nutrition in much the same manner.
Most of my influence has come from my lengthy background in fitness and my love and passion for yoga and its principles. I hold prior certifications in personal training, group fitness and aerobics which have all influenced my teaching style. My workouts are designed to interesting and challenging to both mind and body. My teaching style is light hearted fun with tough love influence to create a unique workout designed to work the entire body.
Using what I know to be true, gathering reputable data, and testing philosophies has come together to form MONICAS HARD YOGA. Since we are always learning, evolving, we must approach fitness and nutrition similarly. No one size fits all. Learning and understanding your body type or Aryuvedic Dosha helps to sift through the fads and create a more approachable and sustainable way to live. Understanding where our food comes from and what foods are best for our body types and lifestyle are key to maintaining a healthy weight and overall health. Obesity is at an all time high, and rising. Our children are getting fatter and fatter. Most people do not know what foods they should be consuming and most have no idea of the business practices of big agriculture.
