Hi, I'm Brian Monnier the owner of the California Yoga Company.

Welcome to your personal journey in healing and becoming more powerful in your life.

Starting a yoga practice is a very personal experience and I want to applaud you for taking the step.

This is going to be a process.
You will have ups and downs. 

Don't worry..

It's Yoga, embrace the process and let go..

Everything will be alright.
Be Ready To Go Deeper Then The Workout.
It is popular for studios to market towards the physical side of yoga.

Now here is where I am going to get really honest with you.

Because you have chosen yoga, you are at some level aware that the physical changes you want are rooted in something deeper then just a workout.

Yoga takes you to the root of what is holding you back in all areas of your life.

Be ready, because at some point along your path it will happen. 

It will get REALLY real, sometimes scary and it's all part of the process. 

Once you go through it.. It's fixed for good.
Here is the process to get a body transformation
Tapping into the person you are wanting to unleash is actually a fairly simple (not easy) process.

First, you will need to set an intention of what you want to work on within yourself.

Do you want fat loss, ease of chronic pain, stress relief, to feel more flexible or more connected to yourself?

Don't skip this step!! It's critical part of unlocking the deep motivation needed to get through those times when your want to quit. You NEED a target to go towards!

Next is to examine your nutrition and lifestyle habits.

This is one that no one likes to do but this is where 85% of the results you are looking for happen.

You can not out exercise poor nutrition but more importantly bad lifestyle habits.

Getting more organic foods, drinking less booze, sleeping 8-10 hours a night, upping your water intake are things that really make a difference in your success. It's were the health benefits and body transformation happen.

Last is the right style of physical exercise.

Now "right style" is about what your internal systems can handle.

If your nutrition and lifestyle are poor then doing high intensity exercise will not only be detrimental, but allow motivation killing. That's because your body simple can't handle the intensity.

Starting with something less taxing on the system will give you faster and more profound gains.

Once you have a laid out process that honors these 3 things you will see the results you are looking for.

Here is what our clients say
The Monnier Method changed my life.

Quite the statement, but true. I walked into the studio 6 years ago, overweight, inflexible, stressed out, and intimidated because I had never done yoga before. I stood in the back of the class so no one would notice how I struggled with the poses, but when I noticed everyone was focused on their own practice of varying levels and was treated with a supportive environment from both the students and the instructors, I let go of worrying and dove right into practice.

One of the biggest benefits I have personally experienced (aside from the GLORIOUS stress reduction) by practicing yoga here is greater awareness of my body – and this is where the weight loss and greater flexibility comes in. Being aware of how stress, bad nutrition and hours sitting in front of a computer affects my body has helped me make better choices and over time, I’ve adapted these choices into my lifestyle. Brian does offer a comprehensive nutrition program for those who are interested and is an excellent fitness instructor. I had a stubborn last 20 pounds to lose and it sat there for years no matter what I did, but after working with Brian, that weight started falling off – and I’m at an age where pounds are supposed to pile on!
I walked into Brian’s old studio on Russian Hill, a few months late in fulfilling a New Year’s resolution. Not only had I never tried yoga, but I’d never been very athletic at all. In fact, I was a wreck: overweight, out of shape and nursing multiple injuries — one of which I’d just been told would probably require surgery.

Brian assured me that my injuries would be no obstacle, and that yoga would help them heal and perhaps even allow me to escape the surgery. He gave me a set of modifications to follow for nearly every pose. For a year or two my attendance was spotty: work schedule, an ailing father and injury flare-ups all meant that it was a good week if I got to class at all. But that occasional class gave me great relief from stress, and was always followed by a few days of reduced pain. 

For the past year I’ve been practicing 3-5 times a week, have dropped over 50 pounds and all but a few modifications, and the injury for which I had a surgical consult hardly ever bothers me — no surgery required!

I really appreciate Brian’s teaching style: his calm-but-authoritative voice, his humor, and his knowledge. Yoga has made a huge difference in my life and I expect it to be a life-long pursuit.
