Vanessa has been teaching yoga to kids and adults for 6 years, specializing in Hatha, Vinyasa & Kundalini yoga. She is also a performing singer/songwriter and music teacher, applying mindfulness and yogic philosophy to the arts. She is passionate about teaching others how to build personal strength, harness their creative power, and honour their truth. She loves to craft engaging, fun classes and sequences, bringing music and movement together. She especially loves coming up with creative classes for kids that help them relax, and learn to calm their mind & tune into their body & soul, while still being playful and silly!
Vanessa first got her 200 hours of Yoga Teacher Training at YogaSpace in Toronto, ON. She quickly fell in love with practicing and teaching Kundalini, and decided to further her education, receiving 100 additional hours of Kundalini training. She has also trained in reiki, sound healing, and meditation. Through her personal practice, she rediscovered her passion for the arts and decided to professionally train as an artist and songwriter, attending Nimbus School of Recording for their Artist Development program. Vanessa continues to expand her teaching offerings and is currently working on her therapeutic art life coach certification and diploma. She has found that yoga & art are pathways to the heart, and believes in sharing her passions with others, which is why she is so excited to be a new member of the Üphoria team!
