”Change happens through movement and movement heals”

“We are all connected. Our differences are what make us the same”.
Vero uses Hatha and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga as tools to explore and celebrate the body’s strengths and become aware of areas that we still need to notice, give attention to, and develop.
Trusting and working with our body’s intelligence, we are able to become our own teachers, taking care of our wellbeing, and live a better quality of life.
Join Vero’s sessions if you’re up for a dynamic and playful practice, to discover something new, let some stress go and have fun!

“As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul…”
Maya Gandaia is about Moving from Illusion to Joy, and this session is designed to move through the archetypes to release the emotions and stories no longer serving us through motion and into our highest self.
This session starts with a chakra alignment to ground in ourselves, to connect to our genius and to open up to a deeper level of creativity, followed by a meditative flow to move to a place of heart, to limber up the hips and spine and to breathe into the infinite universe.

“There’s no need for us to be held back by the past or how things have been so far. The important thing is what seeds we are sowing now for the future.”
Olivia Eng is the creator of the S.C.A.R.S.(Strength Courage and Resilience of the Soul), an ongoing project that aims to highlight the power of healing through the intersection of dance, artistic expression, storytelling, and cross-cultural exchange.
Join her for a dialogue/discussion based on an inspiring quote by great inspiration and mentor Daisaku Ikeda; encouraging us to reflect on how we can use even our uncomfortable and painful experiences as a springboard for growth and creativity.
Olivia Eng & Ofelia Balogun started a small fundraiser to help 8 of their Senegalese artists that they had the honor of sharing space and dancing with at L’Ecole de Sables in Toubab Dialaw (Senegal), who have been deeply affected by the COVID-19 situation.
Their work at the moment has been suspended as musicians, dancers/performers, dance and music educators, a dance company director, and a hairdresser.
We have both donated what we can, but we need your help to reach this goal amount to be able to give some aid to each of them. If you can spare or offer anything at all to help, we and they would appreciate it so much! No amount is too small 🙂
We are deeply grateful for your help and support!
