She is a natural teacher. She wants her students to benefit from yoga. She is gentle and challenging at the same time. “

We’ll make sure to prepare your body through carefully designed and targeted stretches & postures, so the flows, such as modified sun salutations and moon flows, or other inspiring combinations of poses, are safe, fun and invigorating. A restful deep relaxation at the end of class will prepare you to move back to your day fully refreshed. A great additional class for Gentle Mixed levels or Gentle Experienced .

Vesna is endlessly gentle, kind, devoted, and committed to each and every one of her students individually, and to her classes as a whole. She is ever mindful of where we are, our injuries and weaknesses, but always encourages us to progress, get stronger, and do all that we can do. I’ve never seen her discourage anyone from pushing ahead, even as she modifies postures to accommodate what our bodies are capable of doing. Perhaps her greatest gift for me is the sweet sound of her voice, which relaxes me and brings me effortlessly to the state of yoga bliss I experience in her class.
