Victoria’s passion and love for Kundalini Yoga shines brightly in each of her classes. Students come for her warm, fun, uplifting manner and many comment on how peaceful and alive they feel afterwards. Victoria’s classes are for everyone, for beginners as well as seasoned yogis. Using the powerful art and science of Kundalini Yoga, tossing in a dash of philosophical musings and coupled with an often requested soundtrack of music and chants, Victoria provides a space for students from all walks of life, of any age and any physical ability. It is her desire that her students leave class having gained a stronger, more accepting and compassionate sense of themselves in an often changing and challenging world. The body will be strengthened, the mind will be calmed and stress will be lifted!
“Yoga is not just about self-improvement, it is more importantly about SELF ACCEPTANCE. And you don’t have to be flexible to do yoga, you just have to be willing to shake off the dust, and see what happens…”
After Victoria’s first Kundalini Yoga class, over 10 years ago, she experienced an overwhelming feeling of coming home. The power and integrity of these ancient teachings along with their ability to make significant changes in one’s life in such a short period of time, became immediately apparent. Having a busy life, her own business and being a mother of two growing boys, she was astounded at how a sense of peace, neutrality and strength quickly permeated so seamlessly into her daily life with regular practice. Knowing instinctively that she was meant to teach, she was led to complete PranaShanti’s first Level 1 Kundalini Teacher Training course. Since then Victoria has begun her Level 2 Training, and is also a certified Radiant Child Yoga Teacher. And for the past four years, she has had an ongoing mentor/support role within the annual PranaShanti Level 1 Kundalini Teacher Training Program.
Constantly learning and evolving, it is the world has been her recent teacher, and after returning from travels to India and beyond with her two children, Victoria has gained fresh insight into the human condition in a country where Yogic philosophy often underlies the fabric of society.
