Monique Schubert

Monique Schubert began studying yoga while an art student at Skidmore College. After graduation, she studied both yoga and voice with her mentor, Maya Breuer, before completing teacher training at Kripalu in 2001. Her introduction to chanting came much later when she met Amma, ““the hugging saint,” who inspired Monique to take up the practice of chanting. For Monique, yoga, music, and art are essential and inseparable elements of life. She launched the OM Society in 2015, a holistic lifestyle company that expands the reach of yoga into schools, workplaces, and cultural institutions. She was featured in the Yoga Journal article “21 Under 40: Talented Young Teachers That Are Shaping The Future of Yoga.”
