Yoga Health & Wellness for Mind & Body

Yoga & Wellness for Mind & Body

Every day, as I teach yoga classes, I’m filled with gratitude for the opportunity to share my experience and knowledge with others.

Yoga has been transformative for me, enabling me to better listen to my body’s cues, nourish it with wholesome foods when hunger strikes, allow it rest when fatigue sets in, and engage it in invigorating activities when I crave excitement through integrative yoga and wellness practices.
Along this journey, I’ve cultivated a deeper sense of self-compassion, which naturally extends to those around me, fostering a more empathetic outlook. Through yoga, I’ve discovered a profound connection to myself and the world, leaving me with an overwhelming sense of well-being and appreciation.

“She is truly gifted…”

I have been a student of Victoria for close to four years. She was working with my husband when I met her. I had developed frozen shoulder in both of them. I could not raise my arms past my elbow height. I was in pain and had a very hard time sleeping. I started working with Victoria as a last resort as nothing else was really working. Little by little I developed more range of motion. Victoria took her time with me and always had a plan of action to unfreeze my shoulders. Most importantly I trusted her. Through hard work and Victoria’s guidance I am in great shape both physically and mentally. She is truly gifted in her profession!

“I’ve never found a better teacher…”

Victoria teaches yoga with her heart, her soul, and her brain. With her extensive knowledge, humor, and compassion, she encourages her students to explore the movement and development of both body and mind. I have benefited in countless way, both physical and mental, through her teaching. She has been my Yoga Teacher for six years; I first practiced under her, I’ve tried many other classes, and I’ve never found a better teacher.

“Profound and deliberate style of teaching…”

As an Aikidoka (one that practices Aikido), I train to bring calm and peace amid the stress and duress of a physical attack from one or many attackers. I know that I need to remain calm during the attack and that it is my responsibility to bring my attackers mind back to a clear and peaceful state by giving them no option but to surrender without strain. Victoria’s Yoga practice does this to the attackers of our internal peaceful state, by helping us find poses that challenge us to address our egos and anxieties. What we train to do externally as Aikidoka, Victoria has dedicated decades to do internally, through Yoga. Her profound and deliberate style of teaching encourages first-timers to experts into going inside themselves, to see what holds them back, and to let it go, so that they can free their bodies and minds for whatever else life has in store! If you practice with her it is impossible to come away from her class without feeling the calm and relaxed feeling we strive for in Aikido. I encourage anyone who feels they need to learn to find a clearer mind and stronger body with the added benefit of flexibility, to come and try a class with this World Class instructor.
