ABOUT ME: I AM VANESSA, HATHA YOGA TEACHER AND CRANIOSACRAL PRACTITIONER

I’m a Canadian girl, born and brought up in that beautiful country’s westernmost parts. Maybe because of where and how I was raised I’ve always loved being outdoors and being active. And for some reason, I’m always getting’ it real and getting’ to the heart of it about everything. I can’t help but want to know what is real in a person’s heart, what path they truly dream to live, as this is what I want to know about myself, as always.I’m always chiseling away at it. My family has patiently endured this trait in me for as long as I can remember.I love my family there is nothing like that bond to draw me back home.

Being a yoga teacher, I chose to travel…teaching at retreats and learning more. It has been such an amazing and positive experience for me, this teaching and traveling…an honest soul growth gift, no matter how much I love or hate the endurance required for all it teaches. I’ve met many a beautiful person, opening up and challenging allof my perspectives (some more or less willingly), teaching me to rein in some of my others, and learning which ones to hold dear. But all in all finding people of like mind and true heart from everywhere on this blessed planet.

Traveling began for me because of my yoga practice which itself came from a period in which I thought I was suffering a terrible loss. My perception of that experience couldn’t have been further from the truth as it was the launching pad for the biggest gift in my life thus far.

Teaching yoga and meeting other travelers who are also searching and longing for the real thing, which seems to be for a connection which, in the end, each of us can relate to. This connection seems to be Kindness, in whatever form it arrives, whether it’s soft and happy, or blunt and rather direct. It is this that has inspired me to create this website, as a resource for those who want to find, to connect with, or to maintain a practice that is fulfilling in yoga and in Kindness; one which fits naturally into the individual yoga practice of life, and with a teacher who can support that authenticity.

So when all is said and done, I hope you reach for the stars, as that is what I want to do. I hope you explore your dreams, as that is what I hope to do. I hope you have peace of heart, as this is what I hope for myself. I hope you feel connected, as this is something I cherish for myself. But most of all, I hope you have freedom and are ever reaching toward kindness first, as this is what I aspire toward. The process is Yoga.
