Monica Mesa

Soul on Fire Yogini on a Mission!

I am Monica Mesa Dasi, a Buddhist bhakti yogini. I am a daughter of the universe, my beloved Colombian parents, and gurus Neem Karoli Baba and Amma. I am a mother of three amazing warrior sons, one of whom passed away from suicide. I am a survivor of drama, trauma, and tragedy and my life is dedicated to helping people heal on all levels as I heal myself.

 

I am honored to have been teaching, presenting, and sharing yoga for over 30 years. With roots in Iyengar, the yoga of my heart is based in Shiva Rea‘s Prana Vinyasa, of which I have been a senior teacher and trainer, and now teach with my own unique Bhakti touch. Having retired from teaching public classes, I’m now grateful to be teaching at festivals, retreats, and workshops globally, and currently taking a sabbatical to write a book!

 

One of my greatest heart projects was creating Yoga for the Peaceful studio and Yoga Rocks the Butte WinterFest in Crested Butte, Colorado because I believe in creating a sangha/community, that yoga can heal us all, and when we heal ourselves, we are healing the world at the same time!

 

I am a spiritual healer, channeler, an alchemist, and plant medicine woman who has learned that miracles are possible and life is magic. I believe in taking a stand for our earth mother and climate change. I believe that Black Lives Matter, in social justice, and that now is the time to come together as ONE.

I am a writer, poet, a mystic you can’t put in any boxes so don’t even think about it because I might transform into a butterfly before your very eyes!

 

I am a global citizen on this extraordinary planet, I stand for unity in diversity, and I believe that we all need to come together NOW. I don’t believe the world is falling apart, I believe we are all waking up! I believe that self-love and sacred daily practice is the key to becoming our higher self and embodying the divine so we can serve our gifts in the world and feel the inherent joy that is this precious human life.

 

I believe in LOVE. I believe it’s the doorway, the portal, and the key, that I am love, and you are love, and we are here to love ourselves and each other. Passionately and compassionately.

 

If our paths have crossed we are most likely karmically connected and I want to look in your eyes!

 

I am a surfer girl, mountain mermaid, ageless goddess in her 50s and I’m here to rock. I bring all of who I am to everything I do and all my offerings, and I am here to help you rock, heal, and live your dreams.

"Love yourself and you love the world!"

Lily Russo

Ayurvedic Wellness Coach & Sacred Feminine Guide

I feel very fortunate to have been practicing yoga for the past 20 years. It has been a path of health, joy, transformation and empowerment since my teen years. Initially, it was the physical practice that captured my attention, but over the years this led me to study all the other facets including pranayama, meditation, tantra, and yoga’s sister science, Ayurveda, as well as other influential disciplines, primarily Buddhism, the Tao te Ching, and plant medicines.

 

I have participated in over 1000 hours of yoga trainings, and am an affiliate of Shiva Rea’s Samudra Global School of Living Yoga, leading 200 Hour Prana Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Trainings. As a Sacred Sensuality Guide, Yoga Teacher, Retreat Organizer, Podcaster and Ayurvedic Wellness Coach, my goal is to guide others to embody a path of connection to their higher selves and to all other beings, and be empowered to access the great cosmic source of radiance, creativity, and healing. My deepest passion is connecting with women and guiding them to fully cultivate their natural feminine powers of sensuality, intuition, compassion, radiance and pleasure!
