Vanessa Van Noy has been teaching in the NY metro area for over 23 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. Classes are 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, always being mindful of alignment and modifications to keep everyone safe while digging deep.
Vanessa enjoys traveling , teaching workshops and retreats nationally, and world-wide.
Vanessa was so grateful to be selected as a highlighted teacher for the Wanderlust festival, Vermont in 2015.
Vanessa is also 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.
Vanessa is a true believer in the power of the practice . Yoga has changed her life in so many ways. Yoga has made her a happier , more confident and more content human being. Vanessa's mat has been her safe place for a long time, a place where she can feel strong, hopeful and connected. Her wish is to share all these gifts with her community, and to help all beings live their lives happy, healthy and free.
Vanessa specializes in custom practices for one or groups of all sizes and levels.
Summer 2023 something special happened. After two decades of saying no to having her own studio. Vanessa said yes. The stars aligned , the perfect partner and space presented itself. A yoga dream team came together. Purpose was born.
