SYI FACILITATORS:
MEET VICTORIA

Teacher, Nature Lover, Inner Child Connector


Victoria’s yoga journey started over a decade ago. Her yoga practice began as a new way to keep her active self moving and slowly transformed into a passion for discovering her true self and staying connected to what nourishes her soul. After discovering the healing power of meditation through a wellness course in college, her calling to help others connect to the healing power of yoga and meditation began to blossom. Her studies have included earning her 200 and 300-hour certifications and completing a 100-hour yin yoga course through SYI. She is always looking for ways to expand her knowledge in order to help others in every way she can.

When she is not teaching or practicing yoga she enjoys spending time at the beach, hiking, or cuddling with her cat, Pickles. She has a ginormous heart for animals and children and dreams to start a business with children’s yoga in the future. She has also been a group fitness trainer for the last five years and enjoys lifting weights to complement her yoga practice and help with challenging asanas.

Victoria’s teaching style conveys her bright and charismatic energy while also having the effect to soothe her students into a sweet savasana. Her favorite style of classes to teach is hatha flows because the students get a chance to deepen their connection with the breath and sensations in the body at a slow and mindful pace.

Her sequences are inspired by mobility and functional movement patterns, always ensuring enough space for play and experimenting to engage students of all levels. Victoria enjoys the daily practice of yoga/meditation because it helps her to show up as the best version of herself for the loved ones in her life. Her favorite styles to practice are yin and hatha.

My favorite yoga pose is Prasarita Padottanasana or wide-legged fold. I feel so sturdy, relaxed, and able to surrender and release all at the same time. I love the sensation of blood circulating down into my head and feel so refreshed after being in this pose!

One of my favorite quotes is “If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.” -Martin Luther King.

I find inspiration for my practice through wanting to deepen my connection to myself and my emotions. Yoga and meditation have brought me closer to fully loving myself inside and out. Having a consistent practice, whether it be on the mat or a simple meditation, really helps me feel connected and able to nurture my own soul, so that I can nurture others as well.
