About Monica

About Monica

Monica Mesa Dasi is a bhakti devotional yogini, senior teacher, and an inspiring guide of Prana Vinyasa Yoga in Shiva Rea’s Samudra Global School of Living Yoga. Monica founded her first yoga studio in 2007 and became the creator of Yoga for the Peaceful brand studios.


A deep love for empowering yoga teachers to find their authentic voice and thrive in their practice and career inspired Monica to develop her beloved SOUL ON FIRE Yoga Teacher Mentorship online courses. Monica is also currently developing seed projects arising from her desire to live with passion and purpose.


A mother of three sons living in the Colorado mountains, Monica is also a soul surfer, nordic skier, and proud Spanish speaker with Colombian roots who loves traveling and teaching around the world. She continues to develop new and innovative offerings to spread the healing power of yoga to everyone and ignite all hearts to live passionately with a soul on fire! 


Any connection with Monica can be expected to be infused with sacred ritual, celebration, and movement alchemy to honor all the rhythms of living, loving, and serving life. Her teaching is also influenced by her studies in Ayurveda, Buddhism, and attraction-based consciousness as well as her personal grief journey and a devotion to spreading the message of her Guru, Neem Karoli Baba: “Love everyone. Serve everyone. Remember God.”

My Teachers

Shiva Rea is Monica’s Maha teacher, who not only gave her the practice of her soul, but also led her to her Guru, Neem Karoli Baba, and her Lama! 

Lama Tsultrim Allione is Monica’s Vajrayana Buddhist teacher, who has been her wise guide on buddhist teachings with much warmth, patience and depth.

Neem Karoli Baba came to Monica through a mystical moment with Ram Dass, and this inner relationship has filled her life with grace ever since. His message is what informs her life and teaching, “Love everyone. Serve everyone. Remember God.”


Sadguru Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, "Amma", has become a beloved Guru to me and I am inspired by her unconditional love and extraordinary worldwide humanitarian reach!
