She began practicing meditation and yoga in 1983 and for many years she ran a yoga center in Bodrum to which visitors and students came from all over the world. Her daughter runs it now. Her approach to her own yoga practice changed over the course of time. Observing the effects of asanas on herself and then on her students made her change the way of she was teaching and modify asanas to suit different students’ special needs. She travels extensively, running themed workshops in Turkey and beyond. The topics of the workshops currently focus, in the main, on the therapeutic aspects of yoga. Today Monika lives close to Philadelphia where, when not traveling, she teaches and runs workshops.
