Foundations of Yoga FOR STRESS RELIEF will help you understand how to...

  • Feel grounded and confident whenever you need to prepare for a meeting, a difficult conversation or a social event that gives you that anxious pit in your stomach feeling. 
  • Induce physiological changes in your body (such as slowing down your heart when it beats too fast) that create an immediate sense of safety from the inside out. 
  • Move around more easily, reduce your back pain, improve your posture, flexibility and sleep quality, and release muscular contractions caused by mental stress.


  • You’ve been told Yoga will help you get a grip on your stress, but you don’t know where to start from (and all those contortions you have seen on Instagram feel quite intimidating)
  • You’ve always wanted to start a regular meditation/Yoga practice but every time you have tried you have struggled with concentration or understanding clear instructions.
  • You’ve tried Yoga and meditation before, but you get easily frustrated because your mind can’t stop thinking about your infinite to-do-list, it just seems impossible not to get distracted.
  • You have some experience with Yoga but still feel a bit confused about which techniques are the best at facilitating your relaxation process (not your fault, there are some many unsupported claims in this world, so hard to tell what is evidence-based and what is just the next Instagram trend).   

Wherever you are in your journey, let me guide you through an accessible 4 weeks course that will equip you not only with a series of ready-to-apply tools to quieten your mind, but also with a solid understanding of how and why these techniques work according to Neuroscience and Psychology.

If you are ready to feel calm, relaxed and in harmony with yourself and your loved ones, don’t miss this 4 weeks course.

"Your sessions help enormously with stress relief, so calming and relaxing. Nothing I have ever done before has been of this high standard.

"Vanessa carefully teaches the language, techniques and postures so that amazingly, you hear her voice and your body knows intuitively what to do. Her teaching is intelligent - not overloaded with any particular philosophical or psychological viewpoints - but gently informing you of where to look if such things interest you".

You no longer have to feel that uncontrollable stress, anxiety, Pain and tension...
It's time to take back control of your body and mind.


Movement expert, Yoga lecturer and anxiety warrior.

I've been where you are.
Struggling with resting properly, feeling tense and on the edge, always wanting to be perfect.
I was only 8 years old when I experienced the first physical symptoms of stress and anxiety as a horrible stomach ache, that no doctor could find solutions for.
Fast forward 30 years and I now help thousands of busy bees like you transform their lives, improve their physical health and achieve a balanced state of mind through the power of Yoga, Pilates and Dance.  

How did that happen? In my 14 years of teaching and 35 years of studying movement, I have discovered how powerful connecting to our bodies can be to change our mental and emotional states.
Once we know how to use our embodied practice to transform the way we think, then we can feel safer, in control and more resilient.

In this program I have condensed some of the best tools from Yoga therapy for Anxiety, Yoga Psychology and the Polyvagal theory applied to Yoga and post traumatic growth (all about shifting the state of our nervous system to better cope with stress), to manage discomfort in your body and mind, and feel more balanced and resilient in your day to day life.

If you are struggling with anxiety and overwhelm and need some soothing TLC, then you need to give this gift to yourself.

As a general suggestion, in this kind of work there is no right or wrong way of "doing" the poses. Every body has a different best way of expressing the poses depending on many factors. Try and listen to the desired sensations and actions in the body instead of copying exactly the shapes: with the time you will learn how to adapt each pose to find the right amount of stretching and compressing that you need. For this specific style of Yoga, a good rule of thumb is to try and keep the sensation in a range of 60-80%. You want to feel some effects on your body, but never pain, so if in doubt back off a little and notice where you can achieve a safe and balanced sensation. In general if you can't breathe slowly or you notice your facial muscles are gripping, you are likely pushing too hard.
