Vanessa fell in love with yoga during her first class in 2006. In that first savasana she felt an intense feeling of gratitude and a strong desire to pray. Yoga has been such a guiding force in her life, helping her manage her anxiety and type A mindset by learning to live each day in the present. She feels blessed to live by the 8 limbs of yoga, as they allow her to live in a better way. Vanessa knew she had to share her love of yoga, becoming a yoga teacher is a dream come true. While she loves teaching adults, being a mother to two young daughters helped her realize what an impact yoga can have on children.
Vanessa received her RYT-200 under the guidance of Maria Yakkey at Satya Yoga Shala. She also is certified to teach children 2 years and up, and has received her Foundations Certification from YogaKids. She attended YogaKids training at Om Sweet Om under the guidance of Gail Grossman.
