Vanessa is a traveling yoga teacher, flexibility expert and world traveller with a passion for helping everyone she encounters — both in her classes and off the mat — manifest their dreams. In her life, yoga was the game-changer. She began her career as a Rhythmic Gymnast at the age of 5, living a very disciplined life and later becoming a coach in this discipline herself.
As a survivor of a major car crash, she spent 1,5 years rehabilitating her body & spirit and that is what led her to Yoga. She went to India to discover all aspects of Yoga, later training to become a teacher.
Vanessa’s classes are an combination of rhythm, fluidity, and fire. She is fiercely dedicated to intuitive and flowing movement, and she delights in the challenge to choreograph transitions that feel seamless and beautiful.
With more than 15 years of teaching experience, more than 700 hours of certification from a variety of schools, styles including: Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin, Aerial, Kids Yoga, Prenatal-&/Postnatal Yoga, Ayurveda, Philosophy, Pranayama & Meditation, Vanessa is passionate about sharing her knowledge through her classes and encouraging people to have fun through movement.
Her light and energizing teaching style will leave you feeling taller, stronger, and brighter after each class.
In the last decade, Vanessa has spent most of her time living out of a backpack bouncing around the world spreading the magic of Yoga.
Vane and her partner, Rafa, will be teaching classes and workshops at DRYFT from January 2024
