I’m new to the area and really enjoyed the Sunday yin class. I’ll be back tomorrow for some flow! I appreciated the warm welcome, makes me miss my home studio a little less :)

Vanessa

Born and raised in Mexico City, Vanessa found a home in yoga when a new adventure took her and her young family to Miami, FL, in 2002. Her practice is centered on honoring and challenging the body through mindful/joyful movement and breath. Growing up, her movement was grounded on exploring the outdoors with her sisters and dancing to the rhythms of ballet and rock & roll. Her path took her to engage with her body as a tool when she became a professional actress, and later as a temple when her yoga practice and teaching began in 2004. Some of her most beloved and foundational teachers include Natalie Morales, Shiva Rea, Rod Stryker, Karen Prior, Pema Chodron, Thich Nhat Hahn, and, above all, Michael Stone. After almost 20 years in Miami, her search for a more gentle place brought her to Durham, where her practice now expands to the mountains. She aspires to connect with you, as you connect with yourself, through more movement exploration and with the intention to discover, heal and grow.

Vanessa is a childbirth educator and doula who welcomes pregnant people in her class.
