when vanessa started yoga back in 2000, her entire life changed. for the first time she could remember she felt comfortable and strong within her body and began a journey back home to live with more embodiment and presence. soon she became certified so that she could share this gift with others. trained in many modalities of hatha yoga, including extensive training in gentle and restorative, her speciality is creating safe spaces for a people of all shapes and conditions to connect with the temple the move through life in with more ease, grace and joy.  


although at one point in her journey vanessa was teaching upwards of 15 yoga classes a week, these days vanessa spends most of her time dancing in other realms and only teaches one group yoga class a month.  a special live music soundscape, restorative yoga experience with her sweetie jeremy rourke, this monthly class is at the jewish community center (jccsf) and is open to the public for a facility fee (includes use of gym, sauna, steamroom, pool and hot tub). she also available for contracted classes, with our without live music for workplaces, events and retreats.
