BeMoved is a movement library...
Guided by the needs of the community, each month I select a theme to be our movement focus. Whether you need to be soothed, or be empowered you have full access to the BeMoved
library to choose the class that's
Within the BeMoved library you will find classes ranging in length from 15 minutes to 75 minutes in two different styles:
Fusion Flow and Slow Flow.
The perfect blend of Vinyasa Yoga Flow with Functional Movement to create a practice that supports you in your daily life. I guide you through postures and transitions that provide opportunities to build strength and explore mobility in a sustainable way. These classes are stronger in essence with attention to alignment and can include balancing postures, weight-bearing, plyometrics and dynamic movement. Options are always offered so you feel empowered to make choices that feel right for you and your body.
Set at a gentle pace with more time to breathe into the postures, Slow Flow offers the same attention to alignment with less demand. These classes include smooth yoga sequencing and may offer restorative postures using props like bolsters and blocks to release tension and let your mind unwind. Allow the body to open with support and explore the soft side of your practice.
"Vanessa is not only incredibly knowledgeable about the body but she brings so much magic and intention as guides you through practice. Her theming of classes really amplifies the movement and gives you something to take off the mat with you when you go."

I fell in love with yoga in 2014 when the rest of my life was falling apart. The practice offered me a place to tune-in and wade through the deep waters of my own grief and trauma. As I began to befriend my body and find safety within my own skin again, I was astounded by the power movement had to uplift, heal and restore my spirit. In 2016 I took my first Yoga Teacher Training which led to 800 more hours of continuing education in India and back home in the US. I leaned into learning about breathwork, philosophy and most recently functional movement and applied anatomy. You can read more about my journey here.
The connection between the body and the spirit is what fascinates me the most. The truth is, when you consistently move in ways that are nourishing for your body and your nervous system you take bold and courageous steps towards connection to your spirit and the healing of your heart. I created the BeMoved Library to give you a new experience of movement and yoga. One that doesn't ask you to transcend your physical experience but to anchor deeply into the knowledge of the body. Classes that encourage and promote self-compassion and inner-listening while you build strength and explore your mobility in a safe and sustainable way.
Classes that reject "workout culture" and lead you in sustainable movement that nourishes your entire being - body and soul.
BeMoved classes are crafted with you in mind. This platform is a co-collaboration with the BeMoved community. You get a say in the monthly theme, so that this practice and space is somewhere you feel connected to. I bring you classes that meet you in the moment, no matter what is on the table of your heart today. I am passionate about creating a sustainable relationship to movement that provides pathways for greater brain-body connection.
We all know movement is so important for our physical health and it is proven that movement is just as crucial for our emotional and mental health. However, I deeply empathize with the fact that not everyday feels like a great day to step on the mat. That’s why I categorize classes by feeling so you can get exactly what you need on any given day without the pressure of "grind culture". Perhaps you are feeling drained, discouraged and insecure... an empowering Slow Flow could turn your whole day around. Maybe you're anxious, worried and a bit jittery and a soothing class to down regulate your nervous system might move you towards the rest you need.
I see you as a whole person who craves movement for your body and your soul.
