I am Veronika and yoga is my passion. I live on the beautiful island of Santorini in Greece. Here together with my husband we manage a small boutique hostel Caveland where I teach my group yoga classes and my retreats. My yoga terrace offers breathtaking views of the local village and the ocean and allows you to immerse into nature.

I attended my first yoga class 9 years ago during my backpacking trip in Boracay Island in the Philippines. Practicing outdoors with a beach view I fell in love with the practice. I then started my regular practice at Yoga109 in Shanghai (China)– a great studio of Lorraine Aronson.

Early in 2012, I attended a yoga teacher training at The Mindful Academy of Kathy Ward in Spain and became a certified yoga teacher (RYT 200) and therapeutic yoga teacher. This is when I started my journey as a yoga teacher. Since then I completed numerous diplomas in perinatal, kids , baby yoga. I attended specialised therapeutic yoga courses and yin yoga. Whenever I have the opportunity I try to deepen my yoga knowledge as a student, too, may it be through seminars with other teachers or through my own practice.

My yoga classes are inspired by hatha yoga and flow. They combine active assanas as well as breathing and centering exercises with attention to mindfulness and body awareness. Most importantly, it is your holiday–so smile!

I offer a variety of group and private classes. As a mother of two lovely kids I very much enjoy teaching courses in prenatal, mum&baby and family yoga here in Santorini.

Fun & Eye-Opening

Veronika's teaching is so refreshing: she gives many different options per pose, teaches different types of yoga and always honours everybody's individual needs during the class. It's the perfect mix between a bit of fun and seriously working out + spirituality. I found it very inspiring to be her student for the week, and I now hope to find a teacher just like Veronika back at home!

A wonderful teacher!

Veronika is very engaging and fun to learn from. I went through her yoga retreat with osteoarthritis, and while I was relieved to have my ibuprofen, her classes were a breeze to move through. I surprised even myself! Very rewarding, and highly recommended. ♥

Great yoga teacher on a 5 day retreat

I attended a 5 day retreat with Veronika in September 2017, where yoga is held on a beautiful setting on a terrace overlooking the sea on one side and nearby Fira town on the other. She was a great teacher and took us through a range of different types of yoga (hatha, yin, nidra), which I really enjoyed. She started the classes with explaining what would be covered, and also taught us something new about yoga or our bodies in each class. Morning classes were more energising, and evening classes restorive. She catered well to our group of mixed abilities. I'd recommend Veronika's yoga classes and her retreat.

Amazing hatha yoga class

Veronika is a very nice, friendly and experienced yoga teacher. Her lesson was a pleasure from the initial relaxation, through the sun salutations, balance and inverse positions, until the ending relaxation. All together, with a cozy place and Greek sunshine, made a perfect start of the day. Thanks Veronika!

Just beautiful

I was a little apprehensive about embarking on my first yoga retreat but was immediately put at ease.
Veronika is honestly one of best teachers I have had and her style of practice and teaching has actually inspired me to become a teacher myself. She is gentle and considerate, modifying poses to suit each and every person.
I absolutely loved Veronika's teaching style; soft but deep with very thorough instructions, that really break the poses down to ensure you are safe in the posture to prevent injury and get the most out of it.
My group of fellow yogis were an amazing group of souls and I feel very blessed to have met them.
Thank you Veronika, such an beautiful experience

We had a group of 7 people who ranged from a 12 year old to us slightly (!) older lot of women. Veronika was brilliant with us all, particularly given some of us had never done yoga before. She clearly knows what she is doing and I would thoroughly recommend her.

Wonderful teacher

I spent a week with Veronika at one of her retreats on Santorini. She made me feel at ease and I knew I could trust her, she is very knowledgeable. The class was small which made it possible for her to focus on each of us...I highly recommend her as a teacher!

Highlight of my vacation!

I attended a yoga retreat with Veronika in September 2016. Veronika is clearly passionate and knowledgeable about yoga and she creates a calm and serene environment. I felt welcomed, safe, and challenged from day one.

Thank you Veronika for a wonderful yoga retreat - it was everything i hoped it would be. We practised a lot of different poses, and Veronika explained each time the technical aspects and benefits we would get from the practise. I went home feeling so relaxed :)

Loved the retreat!

I attended a yoga retreat led by Veronika and was very happy with my experience. Her approach is very mindful and suitable for all levels. I learned a lot about alignment and appreciated that she focused on different things during each class, whether that was a body part or learning something new.

A perfect addition to our first Santorini visit

An off season visit to Santorini was the perfect destination for rest, relaxation and reconnecting for our family. Veronika made it even better with her personalized, professional and tailored to fit yoga instruction. She came to our hotel for a private session (Hathaway and vinyasa inspired) and made adaptations to suit my experience and the second session she welcomed my 9 yr old daughter to join us for a kid friendly 30 minute "jungle journey," followed by an advanced session for me. Absolutely what we wanted and needed.

Great Baby & Toddler Yoga

My daughter and I started taking Veronika's baby Yoga class last January. From the begining I felt very comfortable in her class and my daughter absolutely loves her. The classes help my daughter gain strength, patience and to become very social with other babies. We have now been participating in the toddler yoga for the last few months and my daughter loves doing her bridge and down dog poses. We look forward to class every week!

Amazing Yoga!

I loved Yoga with Veronika, she is a very good teacher and gives you detailed instructions of the Yoga poses.
Furthermore, if you are not doing an exercise in the correct way she will adjust you or tell you how to do it correctly.
She is very experienced and knows a lot about Yoga and health.
Do not hesitate to practise with her in the sunny Santorini :)
