Get to know the Instructors - Vanessa

Our Texan hot tamale, Vanessa, is not afraid to make some noise. Her classes can be both strong with a commitment toward softening and restorative with a bend toward the uneasy. Find out more about her below.

Why you became a yoga teacher:

To supplement my income in grad school for Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. Teaching became a career in the end and I followed where it's taken me.

What to expect from a class with you:

Depth of practice that isn't about how deep or how far you can get in a pose.

Favourite pose:

Right now it's Restorative Relaxation (feet wide, knees in) because it completely relaxes my belly.

What you're doing when you're not at yoga:

Designing websites and social media content.

Favourite quote:

Whatever's yours will come to you.

Favourite dog breed:

Mutt, any kind of mixed breed with wiry hair. Irish Wolfhounds.
