  • EVENTS

    Paint & Clear

    March 31st, 2-5pm

    I am hosting a night of energy healing, painting and community and it would be my honor to have you attend🙏🏽

    Theme: Spring Release and Awakening

    We will paint a colorful elephant representing Ganesh; The Remover of Obstacles. We will use a Qi-Gong warm up and energy medicine techniques to activate and balance our Chakras. We will use the creative process to get clear on the visions we would like to manifest. Expressing these passions via our painting will be a moving meditation that has limitless potential for healing and clarity. We will also use the action of painting to clear our energetic field and align with your higher creative self.

    • Qi-Gong and breath work warm up

    • Guided Meditation & Intention setting ceremony

    • Art Instruction by guest Artist and Angel Card Reader, Rosalind Green

    • Energy exercises to unblock densities in both the physical and subtle body

    • Mix and mingle with creative, like minded individuals looking to build community and positivity impact the world

    More about what we are painting:
    Ganesha is an archetype who you might call upon when you’re about to embark on a new endeavor. As the Remover of Obstacles and the god of success, Ganesha is honored throughout Indian and Hindu cultures, at both secular and religious ceremonies. When someone launches a new business or moves into a new home, for example, the elephant-headed god is invoked to bless the venture. What new venture would you like your very own Ganesh to bless for you in your life?

    Pre-registration is required. The cost of the workshop is:
    $50.00 March 29, LAST DAY TO SIGN UP

    Ayurveda Spring Awakening Workshop @ Vinyasa Arts

    April 13th, 5-8pm

    • Learn the basic concepts of Ayurveda, the ancient sister science of Yoga, and more specifically this current season’s dosha, Kapha, that we are all experiencing. We will explore how to find more balance through asana, meditation, devotion, diet and lifestyle.

    • Followed by a tapas (purification through heat) inducing Vinyasa Flow to bust thru the heavy downward moving energy of Kapha and use fire and air to move outward and upwards. Entering the next season in balance from the last is key in Ayurvedic practice.

    • We will then share some yummy Ayurvedic foods appropriate for Kapha season and have a fun and interactive Q&A session.

    • Great for all students looking to deepen their practice and incorporate more
    yoga in their diet and lifestyle. Excellent for teachers to see Yoga thru the lens of its sister science and deepen their teachings and personal practice.

    SPACE IS LIMITED, SIGN UP TODAY!

  • MY STORY

    My philosophy is simple: You gain total health and wellness by treating not only the physical body but the mind and spirit as well. Easy said, less easily done and impossible to find at your neighborhood gym. I knew all this pretty early in life.

    Kid off balance

    From a very young age, Victoria was always the chubby girl. She tried every diet and counted calories since she was 14. Then in her 20s, she took her body back and lost 45 pounds by spending hours in the gym and maintaining a rigorous diet. It worked, but when she looks back she can see it as working hard and not working smart. 

    Oh, baby

    In her early 30s, Victoria had two babies only 18 months apart, so after about four years of being pregnant and nursing she had 70 pounds to lose and man was it stubborn. Now, spending hours at the gym was no longer an option with two little ones.

    On a mission for me

    Her final path to health felt like a giant jigsaw puzzle with lots of missing pieces. As the pieces revealed themselves - nutrition, physical fitness, mental wellness, emotional wellness and spirituality - She began to lose the weight in an almost effortless manner that she had never experienced before. 

    On a mission for you

    Today, Victoria's life's mission is to share these techniques with her clients and students so that they can experience true health. She is constantly learning about all aspects of lasting vitality, and has the following certifications:

    • Certified Personal Trainer, National Academy of Sports Medicine
    • Certified Yoga Teacher 200hr, Laughing Lotus NYC
    • Certified in Ayurveda 100hr, Laughing Lotus NYC
    • Inversion Intensive– FLY 50hr, Laughing Lotus NYC
    • Energy & the Subtle Body Intensive 50hr, Laughing Lotus NYC
    • Chakras Intensive– 50hr, Laughing Lotus NYC
    • Hands on Assists– 50hr, Laughing Lotus Nola
    • Super Sequencing– 50hr, Laughing Lotus NYC
    • Restorative Yoga– 25hr, Laughing Lotus NYC

    Victoria continues vigorous self study of Ayurveda, spending an intensive week training in upstate NY every Summer with Dr. Lad from the Ayurvedic Institute of New Mexico. She also continues to study nutrition and the subtle body, more specifically the Chakra system.

    Diosa Wellness School of Yoga & Ayurveda

    Victoria's Dream came true in June 2018 when she opened her own Yoga School. In October 2018 she graduated the first 10 teachers from her program. Below is some of the feedback she has received:

     

    "My yoga teacher training experience with the Diosa Wellness School of Yoga and Ayurveda was amazing! Victoria is amazing! You really feel her love and her desire for her students to be successful in the training and as yoga teachers. She is so knowledgeable and you really feel and are inspired by her passion and love of teaching, yoga, living a healthy life, and Ayurveda. I registered for this 200 hr yoga teacher training to become a yoga instructor and share my passion and love of yoga with others, but I graduated having been transformed personally. I learned a lot about myself and how to live a more centered and yogi life. I became a better wife, mother, and person through the training, and for that, I am so so grateful. During my training, I experienced a move to another state, my daughter graduating high school and going off to college, and a job change. My life basically was turned up side down. I seriously feel that my training and all the knowledge Victoria so willingly shared with us helped me so much through all this change in my life and kept me from mentally falling apart. The training was tough and there was a lot of homework and there were many times I wanted to just throw in the towel, but I'm so grateful I didn't. Even if I never taught a yoga class, I would not regret taking this training. I currently am teaching and, because of Victoria and her school, I'm able to share my passion and really teach from my heart and soul. I've received a lot of positive feedback from my classes, and I'm able to help others not only feel good after a class, but to really have an appreciation for yoga and all that goes with it. I'm able to show that yoga is more than just poses you do on your mat, but it's a way of life that can really transform you. I owe that to Victoria and YTT.❤️🙏" — Misty Caples

     

    "I recently completed my 200 YTT training with Victoria and highly, highly recommend her to anyone looking to begin their teaching journey or even to deepen their practice.

    Victoria's energy was just as high and passionate during our last hour of training that it was our first hour and that was energizing and inspiring. God has blessed this beautiful soul with a true gift and it was a honor to be part of her first 200 YTT program." — Sarah Knill

     

     

    "In October of 2018, I completed my 200 YTT ( teacher training) with Victoria, the owner of Diosa Wellness School of Yoga & Ayurveda. It was truly a life changing experience. Anyone looking to deepen their understanding and practice of yoga and Ayurveda or teach classes should look no further!" — Alexa Hagenbrock
