Vera started practicing yoga in 1992 back in the former Soviet Union in an attempt to improve her health and take the family tradition of healing into the new direction. Yoga practice has allowed her to remain healthy, focused and sane through 20 year career at top financial institutions (UBS, Barclays, HSBC). Whilst working full time and becoming a mother to two lovely children, Vera qualified as a yoga teacher and massage therapist focusing primarily on female health, pregnancy and birth as her main points of expertise which was further complimented with full Yoga Therapy Diploma with graduating distinction to allow Vera to work with more serious conditions such as chronic lower back pain, MS, ME, cancer support. She also trained as a Doula and has been birth companion to over 30 births to-date which is an inspired work full of magical delight.

Vera works primarily in one-to-one setting as she believes that therapeutic yoga develops good level of health and well-being as well as aiding recovery from physical and mental ailments as it works on specific conditions in a targeted way. Yoga Therapy (YT) combines techniques and tools from many styles and branches to develop self-practice, the key ingredient of which is the integration of mind and body that kick-starts the healing process. Although YT is a relatively new branch of holistic treatment from clinical recognition perspective, it is gaining respect among main stream medical practitioners as they start using yogic techniques either for themselves or their patients.

“I have had the pleasure of studying with Vera for over ten years, as both my teacher and my friend. Her sessions are the highlight of the week and her yoga practices, and wider experience in healing, pre and post natal care and other therapies have provided a holistic approach to supporting me in working through two pregnancies, illness, and the general stresses and pressures of living in the 21st century.” Alison, Kent
