Meet Vanessa: Children's Yoga Teacher at BEAM ACADEMYDec 21, 2020
1. About Vanessa
Hello! I’m Vanessa. I’ve been teaching children’s Yoga for nearly 7 years and Yoga for adults for over 4 years. I’m a bit of a jack of all trades, having originally studied in Fine Art, worked in the service industry and countless other odd jobs. I’m still a practicing artist, but now I also enjoy practicing and teaching Yoga.
I’d always been interested in Yoga, alternative therapies, health and well being, but hadn’t practiced strongly and consistently until I was invited to try becoming a Yoga teacher for children. So that’s where I feel like my real Yoga journey started.
2. Favourite Pose
It’s hard to choose, but I’ve picked Crow pose as my favourite. I love this pose because it was probably the first time, since I began practicing consistently, that I saw real solid results in my practice and realised I was getting stronger! I also like teaching this pose to kids as it's fairly achievable and never fails to impress them and pique their interest.
3. What is your favourite thing about your career?
I actually really like that my career has been pretty all over the place untraditional. I’ve hardly ever had a regular 9-5 job, it’s not always been easy and straight forward, but I enjoy the creativity, freedom and variety of experiences that my equally varied career has given me.
4. What makes you laugh the most?
I get a good giggle from watching stupid online clips of animals doing something weird, like cats talking or falling in the bath - that sounds so mean, I swear I do actually love animals, but sometimes they do some really silly stuff.
