Monika Kailani Bobkowska
co-founded the Dharma School of Ashtanga Yoga & Ayurveda.
Certified yoga instructor, meditation teacher, Ayurvedic therapist and intuitive massage therapist. Monika began her personal yoga journey and practice in 1998. She studied Ayurvedic healing and Yoga in India and has been exploring the healing dynamic between the human body, mind and soul. She approaches each individual sensitively, harnessing her depth of experience as a yoga teacher and holistic therapist, encouraging each client to explore the limits and expand upon the possibilities of the the body and mind.
Drawing on her experience and love of nature and the outdoors, she is now living and teaching in Sussex, helping others to develop their Yoga practice and self-awareness.
The Yoga path has helped her to find answers to life's bigger questions and really find balance and harmony in life.
Monika has developed her sensitivity for people's energy to help her personalize your experience of learning a deeper Yoga practice. Ayurveda teaches that each of us has a unique constitution and that being aware of mind and body posture can really help bring more joy and happiness into our own lives and the lives of others. This, Monika believes, helps us all to feel more connected to each other and all things.

Highly knowledgeable, authentic and passionate she shares with her students what she learnt while living in India for many years - about yoga, life, ayurveda...
