Vanessa Roux.

Yoga Teacher

I have been practicing yoga for about 10 years. But I found myself working to the point of burnout and soon realized how it was taking a toll on my body and peace of mind. Although I packed my yoga mat on every trip around the world, I was yearning for the health benefits connecting mind, body and soul on a daily basis. With the intention of exploring this new world of well being, I quit my job, graduated from Absolute Yoga Academy 2015. Certified as a 200hours Hot Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance and soon after did another 200h Yin/Yang with The Yoga People based in Ashtanga Vinyasa and Yin Yoga. Certified in Chakra and Crystal Healing level 1 by Miracles, and Thai Yoga Therapy. I am now continuing with my advanced 300h with Yogabeyond and Bryceyogaschool. I continue learning as much as I can!

For me yoga is physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually fulfilling – The perfect antidote.

Your motto/words you live by: Your Mind is your greatest or worst attribute. Feed your thoughts with Love. Only you can hear your inner dialog.

An interesting fact about yourself: I am a Lingerie and Swimwear designer by trade but I have had many jobs and many passions. Yoga being my main one.

Advice for those starting their yoga journey: The true essence of Yoga is not only the physical practice. In fact you can practice yoga daily, without doing any asanas.
