About

Vanessa Van Noy has been teaching in the NY metro area for nearly 15 years. She has worked with pro and collegiate athletes , people with physical limitations, and everyone in between. She specializes in creating practices that are fluid, functional and fun. She encourages humor&compassion, perseverance & perception , love &laughter. Her training as a Certified Thai Yoga Massage Therapist allows her to be very hands on in her classes, using touch as a way to deepen a posture or just show a little love.

Vanessa's classes are always a little bit different from the last. With music that motivates the body and lifts the spirit. Her class environment is conducive to laughing one moment, or discovering your true inner-self the next. It is always a flowing style, intelligently formulated to move toward some fabulous postures with comfort and ease. She will sprinkle some breath work, sometimes some Kundalini, being mindful of alignment and modifications to keep everyone safe while digging deep. Vanessa travels teaching workshops and retreats nationally, and world-wide. She also was selected for the Wanderlust festival in 2015.

Vanessa is the founder of “Headstands for Hunger “a annual yoga-based community event that feeds hungry people and homeless pets in Monmouth County NJ. Taking yoga off the mat is where its really at.

  • Press and Love

    Vanessa is a very caring and compassionate woman who is an inspiration to me as well as many others. Setting a genuine example, she selflessly gives to her community through her teaching as well as the many charities she's organized. she's mindful, present and involved, and she passionately practices what she preaches, especially when it comes to animals.
    Over the years I've learned a lot from Vanessa, she's a beautiful person. I'm humbled and grateful to have her as my teacher, my friend That's why I'll keep coming back

    In yoga, one is relaxed and challenged, peaceful and mindful, blissfully unaware and sharply focused. Though mutually exclusive, these concepts inexplicably blend to create a profound sense of well-being and joy... That is, if you have the right teacher. Vanessa is the right teacher.

    Vanessa is a rock star yogi with a huge heart. i love moving to her eclectic and inspiring music and following her thoughtful instructions. the flow sequences she guides us through are amazing: i always feel stronger and more balanced in both body and mind after a class with vanessa. her brilliant teaching has helped me create a fun and varied home asana practice. (and i miss her so much…)

    Vanessa... Because of you.... I am a good teacher without crazy advanced poses. I am grateful for fab sequencing technique, weird, almost brash, where is she going with this stuff , hell it's hard, take a chance, flows. I am thankful for basic poses with no holds barred difficulty and alignment. Not a day goes by without a nod of gratitude for the rogue you are, with a mostly anusara note. I totally add my own momma loving vibe, but I am most grateful when people tell me......you remind me of Vanessa.

Go DeeperThe mind is a funny thing.. sometimes it has something good to say.....

  • THE BODY ELECTRIC....

    My body has taught me many things. I am stronger than I think, and sometimes more fragile than I would like. I can endure pain with courage, and be put in bed by something so small I can't even see it. I am marvelous, miraculous....
