Monika Lupean, E-RYT 500, has been teaching Yoga for over fourteen years. She found yoga through the recommendation of a chiropractor in Salisbury, MD and immediately fell in love with the practice. Upon returning to the Eastern Shore of Maryland in 2009, Monika founded Salisbury Yoga.


Gradually, more healing modalities were added to the “tool box” at Salisbury Yoga. Our motto is that we meet each client exactly where they are. A session with Monika can be an exploration into several different disciplines, which are often melded into one another in order to help serve the client in the most optimal, gentlest manner. Each session is deeply healing and restoring on many levels: physical, emotional, spiritual, mental and beyond.


In the practice of Yoga Nidra, a deeply healing, nurturing guided meditation which actually rewires and reorganizes the brain, encouraging healthier habits and an extremely gentle release of past traumas, Monika has found another lifelong love. She receives accolades and recommendations from clients daily, as they experience deep transformations through this healing practice.


Monika continues to learn and grow daily, both as a result of her continued trainings and teachers as well as from her clients and her personal practice. Salisbury Yoga has now evolved into Salisbury Yoga & Wellness Center and continues to grow in order to serve the varied clientele of the Eastern Shore of Maryland and beyond.
