Each month the team at YAX selects a star athlete. This athlete truly embodies our core values with perseverance and accountability at the forefront.

Our March Athlete of the Month is Mona Rio! We’d like to give a shoutout to Mona for consistently bringing her hard work, dedication, and enthusiasm into the studio, via livestream, and on-demand.

1. What is your favorite thing about Yoga Athletex?

The people! Every trainer and staff member goes above and beyond to make the experience challenging, but still fun. ⁠

2. What is your favorite thing about YAX Online?

I can find whatever I’m looking for: an intense training session, a deep stretch, guided meditation or breathwork. And I can do it whenever and wherever I happen to need it!

3. What are the biggest physical and/or mental benefits you have received over your time?

⁠Physically, I’m making steady progress in areas I have never focused on before (resistance, weights, etc.) while still being able to improve on what I have always enjoyed (speed and agility.) Mentally, I have found a great balance of what types of training and recovery best work for my lifestyle. ⁠

4. What progress are you most proud of?

⁠There are two things I’m really excited about:

(1) I have regained range of motion and strength that I was told wouldn’t return (after surgery) through consistent, but mindful, training.

(2) I have learned that more training isn’t always better. Recovery is a necessary part of the process.
