I am Veronika and yoga is my passion. I live on the beautiful island of Santorini in Greece. My husband and I own here the hostel Caveland. It offers lovely outdoor terraces with breathtaking views of the local village and the ocean. This is where I both practice and teach yoga. My hobby is also cooking, baking and experimenting in the kitchen, therefor you find here also a blog with my recipes. I try to use local and seasonal ingredients. You can taste my cakes during the breakfast at my retreats.
I attended my first yoga class 7 years ago in Boracay Island in the Philippines, I fell in love with the practice. I then started my regular practice at Yoga109 in Shanghai (China)– a great studio of Lorraine Aronson. Early in 2012, I attended a yoga teacher training at The Mindful Academy of Kathy Ward in Spain and became a certified yoga teacher (RYT 200) and therapeutic yoga teacher. In 2013 I also completed yoga for kids training with Rainbow Kids Yoga. I am a mother of two kids and I love to see them having fun with yoga! I have also a diploma in perinatal yoga (pre and post natal yoga) and baby yoga with Birthlight. I am a member of International Yoga Alliance and International Association of Yoga Therapists. What resonates within me during my practice are the words of an amazing yoga teacher Oona Giensen who I had a chance to take a short training with. As she says — “less is sometimes more”.
My yoga classes are inspired by hatha yoga and flow. They combine active assanas as well as breathing and centering exercises with attention to mindfulness and body awareness. Most importantly, it is your holiday–so smile!
