Meet Yoga Teacher Dee Monroe

What is alive for you right now?  Lucy and Salem coming to stay for a while, my trip to England, my yoga community.

What are you listening to right now, music or podcasts. Ane Brun-from Sweden, Tash Sultana, and old favourites-Eric Burden, Van Morrison, The Pogues, Patti Smith, Cat Power.

Favourite place in the world? My bed!! An open ocean beach- any open ocean beach, and I love sand dunes, and desert-I guess I love open space and hiking in the Rockies above the tree line.

What are you top hobbies?  My horse, Tony! Reading, walking, seeing friends, new places.

Where can I be found when not teaching yoga? At the barn with Tony, picking up poo, at home with Jack, with my kids/grandkids, having coffee/lunch with a friend.

How did I find yoga? I was fired from a beloved job, licking my wounds, went to a yoga class and one of those light bulb moments-that is want I to do…….!

What is your idea of an adventure?  A good hike with good friends, travel somewhere new, possibly wild and remote…New places.

Favourite thing about teaching yoga?  I stay fit doing what I love, people feel better a with yoga so it’s a feel good job, lots of flexibility- no pun intended, I can take it anywhere for as long as I choose, I am my own boss.

How do you practice self-care?

I like to go walking, or practicing yoga Nidra when I am feeling tired. Also reading a good novel, time alone!! And time spent with Tony my horse is very therapeutic!!  I just love animals and get a great sense of joy from birds, and squirrels and all critters!!  And cuddling up on the couch with Jack, my husband, watching Netflix or Eastenders or Coronation Street!!
