Vera has been practicing yoga since 1992 and teaching from 2004 (holding teaching diplomas across a number of disciplines from BWY, Birthlight, Yoga Therapy and Children’s Yoga). Vera has extensive training in meditation and mindfulness practices and has been supporting women as a birth and postpartum Doula since 2008. She is a supervisor for the Yoga Therapy Diploma with Yoga Campus as well as Doula Mentor for Doula UK moving towards the next stage in her career by sharing her experience and teaching the new generation.
Among her over 2000 hours of training in many traditions of yoga, yoga therapy, holistic therapies (ayurveda, Bach Flower, shiatsu and others) and doula supporting work, Vera specifically focused on training in yoga nidra, hypnosis and restorative yoga as she feels that without restorative practice and ability to enjoy and come to terms with the stillness, deep transformation is difficult, especially in the current fast-paced environment and this stillness allows our bodies to restore health in a holistic way, especially when it relates to reproductive health.
She brings a restorative approach to all therapeutic work she does with focus on provision of support covering all aspects of the female lifecycle (from fertility issues, through pregnancy, birth, postpartum and beyond). The latter is now the primary focus of her work in the yoga therapy field, and she offers fully integrated programmes to the clients who are embarking on motherhood journeys. Vera supports her clients mainly through one-to-one set up but also teaches group classes as well as running workshops and retreats.
