Vanessa Mock
Vanessa’s Flow classes infuse explorations within her personal practice into her teaching. Elements of Ashtanga Vinyasa, Flow, Forrest and Pranakriya yoga styles may all be integrated within a class. Vanessa strongly believes that practicing yoga is not "one pose fits all." A variety of poses will be broken down from the fundamental alignment to more advanced variations, so all can explore safely and with intention. She highlights a refined stability in the practice, finding the balance between strength and flexibility, to ensure it is sustainable for many years to come.

Vanessa cultivated a consistent yoga practice in 2004, and graduated in 2007 from the highly respected 250 hour Foundational Yoga Teacher Training from Wake Up Yoga under skillful and caring eyes of Corina Benner and Jill Manning in Philadelphia, Pa. She has continued her yoga journey with renunciant monk, Yoganand Michael Carroll, studying intensely in his 500 hour Professional Pranakriya Yoga Teacher Training and graduated in September 2011. She also completed over 120 hours of training in the Pranakriya Yoga Therapy program. Vanessa is currently enrolled full-time at the American College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) in pursuit of her Master's Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture & Herbology). After graduation, she intends to merge her knowledge of yoga and TCM into yoga classes, workshops, and continuing education for fellow teachers.
