Mona Warner, a Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner, Ayurvedic-Yoga Therapist, and author, is dedicated to the growth and nurturing of the global community through her passion for Ayurvedic and Yogic Education. She is a leader in this field, having enjoyed thousands of hours of international professional training, and as founder of Janati Yoga School – a facility she designed to train yoga professionals and offer unique programming, including a 200-hour foundations-level Ayurvedic training.
“I have learned that the things we do every day – eating, sleeping, working, moving, playing, breathing, and the company we keep – have the greatest impact on our overall health and well-being. Ayurveda is a rich and deep well of wisdom and experience that can guide each of us to balance, health, and happiness. I am passionate about sharing this wisdom with those who want to be balanced, healthy, and happy… which is one way we can make the world a better place.”
Mona started intensive training in yoga and Ayurveda in 2004, after working for more than a decade in the technology sector. This included a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training with Yogirishi Vishvketu, 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training in India at the Himalayan Institute, Ayurvedic Marma Therapy Training (similar to acupressure) with Ayurvedic Doctor Hermant Gupta, a 300-hour Ayurvedic Yoga Teacher Training and Ayurvedic Specialist Training at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and, in 2015, Ayurvedic Health Counsellor Training at the Kripalu School of Ayurveda. Mona’s Ayurvedic bodywork training includes Abhyanga & Shirodhara with Dr. Margrit Mikulus, and Abhyanga, Vishesh, and Marma Therapy with Hilary Gerivaltis. In 2018, after studying with Dr. Anusha Sehgal, BAMS, Mona completed the National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA) board examinations to become a Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner.
