CHURCH444 studio & gallery launched online during the wake of the global pandemic on May 6th 2020. Founder and Creator Monika Benkovich had a vision to create a space for people to connect with themselves and each other through creativity, movement and mindfulness. The root word of "church" means a gathering place for socio-economic change and the number 444 signifies rebirth and moving in the right direction of
your own unique path.
Monika's background in the arts, living and travelling all over the world and her studies and certifications in various Yogic and alternative practices have greatly shaped the foundations of the CHURCH444 experience. She believes in community over competition and strives to create an inclusive space for self-discovery and full acceptance by offering unique experiences online and in-person.
Curating pop-up markets and a weekly Saturday George St. Market (Hamilton Ontario) in the Spring/Summer months.
We believe that creativity is the key to change and fostering a vibrant community.
Yoga, fitness, mindfulness and pilates are just a few of the classes we offer. The Creator Team is a dedicated, experienced and passionate group who truly love what they do. Members are invited to come as they are, with or without experience while it is our job to create a comfortable and inclusive environment.
Our open space encourages free thought and conversation, even difficult ones. Everyone comes with their own unique story and we encourage participants to take the tools and experiences they learn from CHURCH444 and apply them to their own lives.
