Mona Lisa Godfrey was born in Riga, Latvia, and grew up in Stockholm, Sweden. In 2000 she and her family moved to California. The struggle of constant movement and change made Mona turn to dance and athletics for refuge.
Initially drawn to the physical aspects of yoga, her practice eventually took a sharp turn when she began attending regular classes to heal an injury from a car accident. Over time, she noticed that the most significant impact of her yoga was happening off the mat.
The practice began to transform her life and she developed a more meaningful and spiritual relationship with herself and others. She continues to broaden her studies and enrich her practice with the help of renowned teachers in the OC and LA areas. Mona still enjoys being a student just as much as a teacher, and invites you to meet her on the mat!
