Monica Durst was born and raised in Mexico City and moved to Miami, Florida in 2010 with her family. She has always been inclined to the arts, which led to her participation in theater, visual arts, fashion design, and music projects throughout her youth. Later, she developed a passion for working with children. This led to several projects meant to help kids connect with themselves through various forms, including theater, yoga, and meditation. When she moved to Miami, she got certified as a yoga teacher, YOMU coach, Cosmic Kids yoga instructor, and mindfulness coach. With these certifications, she expanded her experience with kids and taught yoga, music, and mindfulness classes at schools, summer camps, and community centers. Her 22+ years of experience working with kids has given her the extensive knowledge to become a very loving and successful instructor, always bringing positive messages and mindfulness to everyone.
