I started attending Yoga WIld in November of 2019 because I found their focus to be wholesome and truly community-oriented. This is one of my favorite studios to attend and hope many others try them.
Vanessa started her yoga journey in 2013 as another form of exercise but it slowly became a part of her own healing journey back to self. She received her Kid Yoga training and level one Urban Zen Therapist certification through YogaWorks in Los Angeles in the spring of 2014. In 2015 she official completely her 200 hr teacher training at Liberation Yoga. Vanessa's passion for trauma informed care has led her to train with Zabie Yamaski through her Transcending Sexual Trauma through Yoga teacher training. Vanessa has led yoga as healing classes at the University of California and at the East Los Angeles Women's Center a non profit agency that works with Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence survivors. Vanessa's love for social justice and healing has bought her up to Washington to complete her Masters degree in Social Work and is currently enrolled in the Somatic Experiencing Professional Trauma Training program. Vanessa is falling in love with her new home in Tacoma and is looking forward to building wonderful memories in the City of Destiny.
