(n.) Karuṇā : Sanskrit for Compassion
How the Practice of Yoga Harmonizes Our 3 Vital Aspects
As you become more in tune with your body you will figure out what movements work best for you. When you are conscious of your body, its needs and limitations, it can help support you throughout your life. The body was built to move and the more we move, the healthier our bodies can be!
There are numerous types of meditation techniques and approaches out there, many which help to settle the mind. It can be helpful to work with an experienced teacher who can help guide you to a beneficial practice for your specific needs and temperament, but it is also good to explore on your own and see what feels right.
The word spirit comes from the Latin word “spiritus” which literally means breath. Our breath connects us to our deeper selves and life itself. It is also the link between the body and the mind, and when these two aspects of us are linked through conscious breath, the Central Nervous System is set for healing on all levels.

“I have been taking Veda’s wonderful group yoga classes for the past few years and recently opted for private sessions in her lovely home studio. I have benefitted tremendously from her teachings including yoga, meditation and breath work for managing anxiety, stress and disc related pain. She always takes the time to focus on my needs and leaves time for discussion before and after each session. She also follows up with info I can use to practice in my daily life. Veda’s huge heart and enthusiasm is infectious and you always feel so good after being in her presence. She truly cares about her clients and community. I am so grateful for our connection and highly recommend her to anyone looking to start or expand their yoga practice.”
“Veda is an amazingly knowledgeable and informative yoga teacher, as well as one with a huge heart which comes across so easily with her teachings. I always feel safe and nurtured in her classes, not just on an emotional level but also on a physical one, as she is very focused on proper alignment so that students can fully receive the multitude of benefits that come from a yoga practice. I’ve watched Veda grow into being the full embodiment of a teacher throughout the years, and always leave her classes feeling refreshed, centered and content in body, mind and soul. Thank you, Veda, for sharing your heart and your wisdom with us! XO”
“Veda is a great instructor! She is so joyful, energetic and interactive with her students. During her classes, she speaks loudly, clearly and slowly which makes it easier to understand for beginners like myself. I liked when Veda demonstrated the poses and I enjoyed the partner work. It was nice to get off the mat. I can’t wait to take another class with Veda!”
