"I think it’s important to live life to the fullest. If you want wine with breakfast, drank it. If you want to randomly go skydiving on Saturday, do it. If you want to change your life, create it. But in whatever you do, be awesomely amazing." 





Vanessa was first introduced to yoga in July 2013. Beginning as an outlet during a stressful time in her life, yoga ultimately turned into a consistent practice for her on the quest for total wellness. She started self-teaching in the comfort of her own home for 3 years before deciding to participate in group classes at a local studio.

Falling in love with the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of yoga, Vanessa decided to enroll in yoga teacher training in spring of 2017 at Blue Nectar Yoga Studio in Falls Church, VA in order to share the art with those around her.

Currently residing in the DMV, she is a Yoga Alliance 200-hr registered yoga teacher. She also has received an additional 30 hour certification in Yin Yoga. Vanessa is also a certified Usui Reiki Practictioner.

In addition, she holds a BS in Biological Sciences and a MS in Pharmacy with a concentration in Forensic Science and works full time as a laboratory research scientist. 

She believes in order to live a life with intention we must take priority in caring for our mind, body, and spirit first. She strives to empower you to be your best self on and off the mat. Her classes are sure to inspire you to ignite your inner strength all while creating a little more space to breathe easy.

She teaches studio classes, online, and private 1-on-1 sessions.
