I started on a yoga journey with Veronika over a year ago. At the end of each Friday 9:15, Yoga Stretch class, I always stagger out of the room so relaxed I need to sit in the car to recover my senses! Veronika has the amazing abilities to stimulate energy, action and joyfulness into her lessons, and yet leave me feeling so very laid back and relaxed at the end. It is a wonderful experience and one I look forward to each week.

When Veronika announced she was going to be running a class on Therapeutic Yin and Mindfulness, I decided to become a participant. Little did I know what an amazing journey was in store for me. I have found that YIN yoga stretches the physical body, while the chakra instruction feeds your mind and gives you opportunity to contemplate your inner body; something I have never done in my life before.

With Veronika’s guidance I am learning so much that is having a positive impact on my health. In this class I am learning about the 7 chakras or energy centres located along the spine, and what impact they have on a person’s well being. Due to a stressful job I have been challenged with digestive issues and constant pain on my right side for many years. Journeying through the first three chakras I have been able to identify some issues, apply some solutions, and my pain has gone.

I now understand that by controlling my perceptions I can have a positive impact on my emotions, which in turn positively impact my physical body. I am incorporating what I am learning into my daily life and I believe it is giving me the tools I need to help prevent this pain developing in future.

I cannot thank Veronika enough for the light she has brought to my life.
