I'm Vaza -- mom, wife, yoga instructor, traveler, free spirit, mostly sleep deprived and usually over-caffeinated.
I’m a believer in love, freedom, delicious food and that we are all connected to each other. I'm here to support you on your health and well being, preconception, throughout your pregnancy into new motherhood
"Yoga with Vanessa has been my saving grace during pregnancy. I've been working with her since the early days of my pregnancy and have had zero back pain. I feel strong and ready for delivery because of my yoga practice! I appreciate how Vanessa is able to assess my body's needs in the moment during our sessions. She's extremely in touch with how the body moves and operates, and her genuine care and concern for me and my baby show through her work. I always leave our sessions feeling relaxed, open, calm and at peace."
"Vaza was my spiritual guide and yoga instructor helping me integrate into all three. She has spiritual wisdom in her practice that helps me get integrated, calm my monkey brain, and settle into my body. She incorporates breath work to help to balance my insides as much as my outside body. I got pregnant without effort and I would say it was due to the balance I had achieved in leaving a toxic job and maintaining my 3x a week practice. She helped me navigate all four trimesters of pregnancy and get prepared for changes to body and mind (oh hormones!). My birth was difficult, surgical, and severe - however - the hospital said my healing was unlike anything they've ever seen, fast and holistic. Without hesitation, my yoga practice helped prepare my body, mind, and nourish my soul so I could go through difficulty and stay connected. Finally, motherhood is a wonderful journey but it can rob you of your "me" time. I've been able to do yoga flexibly with Vanessa and maintain 100% breastfeeding with a young baby. I'm so grateful for her compassion, body-mind wisdom, spiritual devotion, and deep understanding of human anatomy. She's therapy, fitness, and meditation in one instructor."
“I have been practicing yoga with Vaza for many years, through various life stages. Her voice and light have guided me through multiple surgery recoveries, years of normal daily work-life balance management, and most recently, my prenatal practice that resulted in a rewarding childbirth experience. Vaza encouraged me to stay strong and fit throughout pregnancy, which greatly served me during labor and recovery. She brings her positive energy and deep knowledge of anatomy and yoga to each class. I always look forward to my time on the mat with her, and highly recommend her class for anyone looking for a great work out combined with Vaza’s warmth and compassion!"
