Monica Voss began her yoga studies in 1978 with Esther Myers, trained to teach with Esther, and has been teaching at the Studio since 1981. She came to yoga with a background in drama and movement and has degrees in English Literature and Education.
Monica studied with Vanda Scaravelli from 1986-1998. Moving into the poses using the rhythm of the breath and the support of the ground resonates deeply for her and she continues to draw inspiration from Vanda’s and Esther’s teaching, from the natural world, from complementary modalities, from study, and from interaction and dialogue with students and colleagues. Monica has received additional tutelage from Mary Stewart in London, England, Angela Farmer and Victor Van Kooten, Edward Espe Brown, and has attended retreats with Thich Nhat Hanh.
Monica has taught adults, children, families, special needs students, pre- and post-natal women and students with cancer, in classes and privately.
Monica has been training teachers since 1986. In addition to teaching weekly classes in Toronto, she offers workshops, retreats and teacher training in Canada, Great Britain, Europe, Mexico, the Caribbean, and India. She co-owns and directs Esther Myers Yoga Studio and its 750-hour Teacher Training Programme and 250-hour Graduate Teachers’ Programme with Tama Soble.
