My yoga experience.....12 years of practice with 3 years of intensive teacher training through Rusty Wells (Urban Flow, SF). Have also gained valuable knowledge and skills from Bryan Kest (Power Yoga, Santa Monica) and Anne Marie Kramer (Zuda Yoga, Sacramento). I will always view myself as a "beginner" and continue to expand my teaching skills by attending a variety instructor workshops, no matter what style of yoga is being offered.

To see improvement and hear my students express their newfound awareness in themselves, is an inspiration for me to only share this practice with many more.

Mallory Monachino

I was first introduced to yoga as a synchronized swimmer.  My coach would use it for warm-up and cool down after every practice.  I became very interested in the philosophy of yoga and enrolled in Eastern spirituality classes and workshops.  I fell in love with the not only the practice of yoga but the sense of calm and centeredness the moving meditation brought to me.  The next step was enrolling in a 200 hour teacher training at One Flow Yoga Studio in Sacramento.  Within the first few hours of the program, I knew this was where I belonged as yogic philosophy and the art of healing movement were brought together into one loving and meaningful practice.  My teaching forte is vinyasa flow with an Iyengar influence, culminating in a practice that is both fluid and strong with a focus on allowing the postures time to work on you as well as allowing you to work on the postures.  

When I'm not teaching or practicing, I like to play with metal, stones, and clay as a jewelry artist.  I am an actress as well taking the stage in some of Sacramento's local theater and also work at UC Davis Medical School as a patient simulator helping students learn how to navigate difficult situations and proper situational manner.
