A native of the Detroit suburbs, Vanessa began practicing yoga over 10 years ago in search of community after relocating to Raleigh for her first corporate job as an engineer. Through four more cross-country moves, personal life changes, and work stresses, yoga has helped her find both solace and strength.
Vanessa trained with Baron Baptiste in 2014, and completed 200 Hour Power Yoga Teacher Training with CorePower in 2017 (Chicago). In her classes, Vanessa aims to give students a vigorous, sweaty workout and a mental break from daily stresses. She hopes students leave her class feeling healthy, inspired, and refreshed.
When she is not practicing yoga, you can find Vanessa running, cooking allergy friendly foods, and getting to know the beautiful Carolinas.
