Veronica began her yoga journey in 2003 when she became pregnant with her first child. Being a physically active person as a professional Mexican folkloric dancer and avid runner, Veronica wanted to continue exercising safely throughout her pregnancy. This led her to try yoga for the first time. Yoga gave her physical strength and mental endurance which she believes she would not have found without it. An eternal student of life and spirituality, Veronica is constantly seeking knowledge specifically in Eastern philosophies and medicines. Naturally drawn to energetic healing work, she has traveled around the United States and overseas to study reiki, holistic healing and the use of crystal energy. Veronica uses her knowledge as a Reiki Master to bring awareness of the subtle body and chakra systems into her yoga classes. In 2012, Veronica joined the Heat Yoga studios community to deepen her practice. She was inspired to pursue her teaching certificate, taking every workshop available to expand her knowledge during her training. These included Hands on Adjustments, Working with Props, Sequencing and Restoratives. In June 2013, she earned her 200 hour certificate through Yogaworks. She is excited for the opportunity to share her knowledge and to help people heal and grow.
“In this modern day of information overload, to which we are under constant stress and pressure ~ I believe we as a collective can find the inner strength and peace, through the teachings and practice of yoga and reiki.” ~ Veronica Walters
When I teach, I don’t show up with a specific sequence or plan, but rather an intention to let go and plug in to the energy of the students. My classes blend the alignment based foundation of Ashtanga, with creative sequencing and an emphasis on breath. My hope is that students will have fun on their mats, feel both challenged and supported to try new things, and will ultimately experience a deeper mind-body connection.
