About


Hello friend!

About


Hello friend!

My name is Mona Luan.
Yoga sparked the fire for transformation in my life and since, it has supported me every single day.

I've always been a determined and self-motivated person but I didn't have much of a direction that was truly my own. I was living life by what others told me I should do. Through the practice, I experienced an unshakable sense of knowing that I had never felt before. I knew, with all my heart and every fiber of my being, I knew, that yoga is my path and direction in life. Sharing my experiences to help others is my purpose.

After practicing on again off again for about 6 years, I discovered Ashtanga yoga and decided to commit to a consistent practice. I was drawn to Ashtanga because it seemed like a great way to stay physically fit. Little did I know how much it would change my life and set me on a path to rediscover myself and my purpose in this world, to expand my awareness, and find self love.

Empowered by the healing in my own journey, I bring light to mental health, body image, and self-love so that I may guide people to find safety within their bodies and minds. I inspire people to live according to their most authentic selves and create peace, joy and love. 

I completed a 200-hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher training program with Amy Beth Treciokas at Yoga Now in Chicago. I teach vinyasa yoga with influence from Ashtanga.

I am passionate about learning and I'm always expanding my knowledge of yoga in anatomy, Ayurveda, sequencing, psychology, philosophy, history and the various styles that are existing and emerging. Off the mat, I am a photographer, graphic designer, writer, empowerment coach, and burrito lover.

Beach Yoga Chicago

"Beach Yoga Chicago is a proud branch of Yoga Gardens not-for profit organization. We strive to teach peace through yoga and meditation. Taking a class with us on Montrose Beach is an excellent way to support Yoga Gardens as proceeds benefit Yoga Garden NFP. If you would like more information on Yoga Gardens please visit www.yogagardens.org

What We Do: We allocate vacant lots in developing residential areas, which often accumulate garbage, attract criminal activity, and ultimately become a burden on the residents . Yoga Gardens transforms each lot into a thriving yoga & gardening community space. We offer free yoga classes to the Garfield Park and West Side communities as well as free organic food which we grow on site.

Yoga Gardens NFP is a not-for-profit organization which began in Chicago. Our goal is to aid and uplift children and young adults of impoverished Chicago neighborhoods. Through yoga, meditation and healthier food options we relieve stress and disease in areas where these difficulties are most prevalent. As yogi’s we believe that it is our responsibility to give back to our community and Yoga Gardens makes it our mission to do so."
