I've had the pleasure of teaching many students, friends and family from all over the map! Whether they step on their mats in Los Angeles, Denver, Tampa, Brooklyn, Nashville or Chicago, instantly we are together, sharing the healing space of yoga. Some of these students have shared their reflections and kind words about their time (in-person or virtual) in The Yoga Room and I have gathered them here for you to read.
"I loved Vanessa's class. It was so thoughtful and got my body moving just the way it needed. The class gave options to make it more energetic or keep it on the calm side. The journaling part at the end was incredibly well thought out and felt so cathartic. Vanessa asked thought provoking questions and helped lead me to my intentions for the new year. She is wonderful at creating a community feel the second I entered the class. It was a wonderful yoga experience that I didn't know how much I needed until I took her class."
"I attended my first New Moon Yoga Nidra class on the night of the April (Aries) new moon. Vanessa is a truly gifted practitioner. I would recommend her classes to anyone who wishes to gain a deeper connection with their body, their mind, and the universe around them."
"The Yoga Room rescued my practice when my neighborhood studio closed during the pandemic, enabling me to continue yoga at home via Zoom. The Yoga Room is welcoming (plants and a sweet pet!), and Vanessa makes a virtual practice personal. The routine differs but always focuses on the importance of core strength, and when we are finished, I feel stronger. Vanessa offers modifications and corrections to each yogi. Adding to the physical benefits of yoga, she often shares quotes and wisdom to strengthen our souls. To say that I am grateful for The Yoga Room is an understatement."
"Vanessa is an amazing teacher!!! She does an excellent job teaching us about the science of movement and our bodies while creating a heartfelt, genuine space for whatever we’re bringing to the mat. I’ve participated in two of her Circle courses and look forward to keeping that up. Highly recommend!"
"The Yoga Room is hands down the best yoga experience I’ve had. I spent years looking for a yoga teacher who could help strengthen my physical practice, while nurturing my heart and soul. Vanessa Paletta accomplishes this and so much more! Her devotion to and knowledge of both the physical practice and philosophies result in a truly holistic mind, body, spirit experience. The attention to anatomy and correct alignment, and the creativity that she pours into every class is unmatched. From beginners to experienced teachers, The Yoga Room has something for everyone."
"Vanessa, being that positive, hardworking, unicorn of a human she is, took virtual yoga and streamlined every bit of it. She set up the cameras just right for me to see her movements & a screen so she can see me too! With these two set ups plus some extra ambient lighting it's made this virtual yoga room seem not so far away, it's just as cozy & safe as ever before! It has worked out wonderfully during class because she can still correct us/me as needed, guide me through my strengthening while speaking clear, calm & informative adjustments throughout the entire hour. I love how Vanessa pulls me out of whatever muck of the day that's bogged me down & connects me to the root of what's good then slowly lifts my intentions towards something better to strive for. After an hour with V, I ultimately feel washed clear of chronic pains & overall BLAH feels."
"I have been taking group classes with The Yoga Room for 8 weeks and have added a few private virtual yoga lessons with Vanessa for the past 3 weeks. Both experiences have been absolutely wonderful. Vanessa has met me where I am - providing a good balance of challenge while still creating flows that I feel successful in. I am new to LYT Method Yoga (I have experience in traditional yoga & hot yoga) and I am truly impressed with what LYT yoga provides. It's functional. It honors & strengthens body alignment. In just 8 weeks, I can already feel the difference. I am trying to convince my friends to try some LYT classes with The Yoga Room! Lastly I will add, that Vanessa is great at providing adjustments for anyone with injuries or physical limitations. If you are thinking about giving yoga classes with Vanessa a try -- go for it! You will be so glad you did!"
"Practicing yoga with Vanessa in The Yoga Room has taught me so much. I love my at home practice, but there is nothing like being in a room with other souls, breathing and learning together. Vanessa’s practices seamlessly merge from intense strength building, to reflective moments and always end with the most heavenly savasana. Every time I practice with Vanessa I not only build strength in my body, but find rest for my mind."
"I met Vanessa barely a year ago in a Vinyasa class and felt an instant connection when I found out she had studied yoga in India, where I had lived for two years. What I love about her classes is how they make me feel both strong & safe. She crafts them--with so much love--to be accessible to all levels, so much fun, and always grounding. As she says, "LYT Yoga moves the body to move the spirit." I have seen improvements in my practice as well as healing in my body, and I couldn't be more thankful for Vanessa's heart and teaching!"
