Victoria has practiced yoga from a young age, but her relationship to yoga has changed over the years. At first, Victoria was drawn to the physically challenging aspects of yoga. However, in the past 5 years, she has found meaning in the stillness and expansiveness of yoga philosophy and movement practices. As a licensed clinical psychologist, Victoria focuses on encouraging individuals and communities recovering from systemic trauma to discover physical, emotional, and spiritual connection within. While we are often taught that healing should look a certain way, she believes that healing can take many forms and look different from one person to the next. Healing isn’t linear and may change over time, as Victoria’s relationship to yoga has changed.
Victoria encourages folx to find what creates ease and roots them. This led Victoria to complete her 200hr Teacher Training at Bloom to further explore the intersection between yoga, equity, and wellness. Victoria prioritizes teaching from a trauma-informed and equity focused framework that emphasizes accessibility of yoga. Anyone and everyone can and should be able to practice yoga if they would like to. She strives to support individuals in creating connection, awareness, and balance in their practice. Off the mat, Victoria deeply enjoys spending time in nature, gardening/herbalism, biking, reading, and hanging out with her pup and loved ones.
