Meet your instructors:

Monica Walsh – High Vibrations Association

Monica was first introduced to yoga when her mom brought her to her first class that a friend was teaching at a Synagogue in the late 90s. They attended the class because Monica’s relationship to her newly developing teenage body was not a healthy one.  This beautiful, simple, practice opened her eyes to a new path with

which to approach the human condition both on and off the mat. Ever since, Monica’s desire for yogic knowledge snowballed –seeking out classes at local gyms and yoga studios turned into finding highly qualified mentors resulting in a lifelong regulated practice and a desire for something deeper, a taste for something higher than ourselves. For the last couple of decades Monica has spent thousands of hours on the mat at different vinyasa, hatha and 26/2 focused studios.  With a great deal of knowledge under her belt and a thirst to help others, Monica became a Yoga Alliance 200 Hour Certified Teacher in March of 2020 and began teaching yoga at Lavender Koi in Berlin, NJ immediately. Around the same time, Monica was introduced to Bhakti Yoga and began to deepen her knowledge in the ancient Vedic teachings of yoga philosophy. Today, Monica continues to teach at Lavender Koi Yoga as well as Studio 67 in Medford, NJ with the a focus of helping others, not only on a basic physical level in the body, but to also provide students with a tool box for the mind and spirit.

Jewels Cusaac, Sound Healer and ERYT

I utilize a plethora of modalities to help students & clients ground into their bodies, establish strong boundaries and open portals to the magic and abundance within. With crystal singing bowls and Kenari Seed Rods, my aim is to bring together both hemispheres of the brain in a beautiful marriage of spirit and science. Everything is vibration, after all, and by tuning ourselves like instruments, we can heal everything from the physical on a cellular level, as well as the spiritual, energetic and vibrational forces within.

WHY I PRACTICE MEDITATION:
Meditation appeals to both sides of the brain; the left, analytical side that knows the immense physical benefits it provides, and the right, fluid side that seeks flow and space. Meditation has allowed me to connect with myself deeply, dissipate anxiety and ground into my own energy to help me become a more empowered being. Forever grateful for these incredible tools.

WHY I TEACH CRYSTAL BOWL MEDITATION:
By studying sound, I also study silence. Silence is the key to all sound. It holds infinite potential. By surrounding yourself in whatever amount of silence you can achieve in this hectic world, we can allow the noises of life to integrate and settle. Although true silence is impossible, when we create space for it, we create space within ourselves. I aim to hold people in this space to feel safe and seen.

Please bring your own yoga mat as we do not offer rentals. Props are optional. Water will be available for purchase in the Nature Center, we also have a water refill station for any reusable water bottles. 

Limited space is available! Grab your spot before we sell out!

  • Children between the ages of 16-18 must be accompanied by an adult/parent.
