"If you're lucky enough to have Vanessa Fleming as a yoga instructor I am already jealous of you. She's not only one of the most seasoned and badass instructors, she's almost inhumanly compassionate. She has a calling and that calling is teaching yoga! She's a wicked dancer, she always packs a killer playlist to practice too, but truthfully it's how she instructs that's the best part of having her as a teacher. She will breakdown the poses with youshe makes you feel important and included even if you are both the typical yogi (I'm certainly not) she give you a vigorous workout with a calming and relaxing aftermath that I have yet to experience with any other instructor! To say she's the bees knees is a understatement. Do yourself a favor get on your mat and get your ass to her class because she's the best of the best and you won't regret a second!" - Betsy Bryan (Norfolk, VA / Los Angeles, CA)

"Vanessa’s inward focus on life and her yoga practice has been a great influence on me and undoubtedly many others. Her yoga was always an exercise of the body and mind. Each practice was reflective, thoughtful, intense, and centering. Although we have moved away from each other and our bi-weekly yoga practice in NYC, Vanessa’s teachings have stayed with me. Not only in yoga, but in how I approach interpersonal relationships, my sport and insecurities. Thank you, Vanessa, for your teaching and most valuable time."  -Alex Kang (Brooklyn, NY)

"I met Vanessa on the first yoga retreat I had ever done in my life. I was a little self conscious in the beginning as most people in the group had practiced yoga before but Vanessa was amazing and completely put me at ease. She took the time to help each participant individually and everyone had a chance to progress at their pace. I was surprised that in one week I was able to feel the difference in my practice. A year after the first retreat I came back for a week of SUP yoga with Vanessa. It was so much fun! Thank you, Vanessa, for helping me learn and appreciate yoga practice!" - Olga Smirnova (Brussels, Belgium)
