ABOUT MONICA B. I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on beer, cheese, fried things and Green Bay Packer football games on Sundays. I currently work a job-job with a 2.5 hour daily commute in tech-crazy San Francisco. I come home to an endearing husband, a spritely toddler, two dogs and a cat. I practice daily meditation, exercise regularly, and have been actively sharing Ayurvedic wisdom through my blog,, since 2008. I have become an expert at tucking Ayurveda neatly into modern life. I’m just like you. If I can incorporate Ayurveda into my wonky-busy schedule, you can, too.

I would love to hear from you!

I met you at Moksha Fest in Berkeley and bought your book (and got a free mug).  I wanted to let you know that I finished the book, while flying for work to Ontario and absolutely loved it!!  This was my first introduction to Ayerveda and your enthusiasm and the book were the best possible intro I could’ve had!  Thank you for making this so easy for us “lay” people!  – Lisa, California

Instead of forcing myself to read cover-to-cover, I looked at the beautiful colors and illustrations and thought to myself, “Monica thought of those images, and she made them come true!” I read some of the tips in the margins. I stopped to learn more in the places where something caught my attention. I heard your voice. I felt how much you care about me, your reader. 

I am amazed. I already feel calmer, more centered, just having been reminded that I am in charge of caring for myself. I can take a few breaths and improve how I feel. I can take a walk and it can be a meditation. All I needed was a reminder that I’m here to care for myself, and I can do it a little better every day. Thank you. – Erika, Wisconsin

You’re a treasure in this world! I read every page twice, because there is just so much awesome in it I don’t want to miss anything! Thank you for being you and bringing your gift to the world! It’s every bit as awesometastic as I knew it would be!! <3 I might have overused exclamation points, but I really just love this book! Every once in a while, I find something that I just know will be life-changing…You make it so easy to understand. Thank you for being part of my changing life. – Kim, Minnesota
