Vanessa Fleming started practicing yoga regularly almost 10 years ago, after her a doctor recommendation to help alleviate a range of anxiety and depression-related issues. After 5 years of practicing and a little kismet sign from the universe, she completed her 200-hour training through YogaWorks Soho under the guidance of Chrissy Carter.
In 2013, Vanessa broke away from her mold known as the office chair, and took off for greater sites around the world. It was in the world where her yoga practice grew beyond the asanas, into a spiritual and inspirational empowerment from a variety of sources around the world.
Since then, Vanessa continued her studies and became more fascinated by the power of quiet practice. Meditation, yin, and intuition are currently what’s driving Vanessa’s practice for herself, and how she’s infusing it with her teachings. Additionally, she offers Thai Massage as an additional bodywork technique, and currently studies under Thai healer Pichest Boonthumme.
Her intentions have brought her many wonderful opportunities – teaching in Croatia, Morocco, Thailand, and Laos.
When she’s not on her mat, you can find Vanessa surfing, snowboarding, dancing, or being very loud with laughter, even as tiny as she is.
Teaching at: Girls Yoga&Surf retreat in Portugal (September 2-9)
