Hello and Welcome
Hi, I'm Vernette -
Experienced, Senior Yoga Teacher and Continuing Education Provider, Pilates & Fitness Instructor, Reiki Master, Therapist and owner of Vernyoga, who is dedicated to helping you with your health, well-being and personal growth.
Vernyoga offers you high quality, joyful, energetic flow yoga, slower alignment-based traditional hatha yoga, kundalini, yin yoga, pilates, mellow/chair yoga, pranayama, meditation, kirtan, pregnancy and baby yoga, fitness and personal training, nutrition advice, massage, and reiki, through classes, workshops, retreats and private sessions and courses in Weybridge, Byfleet, Addlestone, Chertsey, Egham and throughout Surrey. It's Vernette's aim to be able to offer diversity within the yoga realm and make it accessible to all, no matter what your yoga needs or desires are - whether it's a physical yogasana practice or a more deeper connection through a more meditative or restorative approach, Vernyoga aspires to bring it all together for you.
'To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else, is the greatest accomplishment' - Ralph Emerson
Earth Core Flow Yoga - Is Vernette's signature flow style of class. A vinyasa FLOW style with some longer holds for strength, balance, pilates core work, all with the breath as the vital link throughout. Designed to challenge the body and empower you, whilst quietening the mind, using an intelligently sequenced series of postures and movements (karanas / asanas / kriyas) that synchronize breath in a continual flow making Savasana (relaxation) at the end, ever so sweet. The transitions are less linear, than some styles and bio-mechanical, making use of new alignment and anatomy knowledge (Anatomy Trains / Leslie Kaminoff /Sadie Nardini / Jule Mitchell) of myofascial muscle meridians as a primary tool for optimal strength and safety within the vinyasa-based practice. Working organically from strong foundations (EARTH) up through the CORE to ignite our physical, mental and spiritual potential to leave you energised, calm and back to your true SELF.
On the Vernyoga timetable, there are many other styles and abilities to choose from apart from the above; from beginner to intermediate, from slow paced to more flowing, from prenatal to chair yoga. A reasonable level of fitness or mobility is required for SOME of the classes, as they're fairly active (dynamic), flowing hatha / vinyasa yoga, rather than meditative or gentle stretching (except for yin, chair, classic hatha yoga and fusion classes which are more slower paced / gentle / suitable for complete beginners), for more information on classes, click to go to the timetable and click on a class.
Vernette lost and maintained a 4stone weight loss and improved her health through yoga and has practiced and studied for 18years (and continues to study), to offer you a class that has a strong, anatomical alignment focus with assistance where appropriate. It's creative, informative, fun (with Vernette's slightly warped sense of humour!), energising, yet calming.
Vernette brings together all styles of Yoga, Pilates and bodywork that she has trained in - Sivananda / Satyananda, Sun Power, Core Strength Vinyasa, appleyoga, Yin, Kundalini/Laya, Bhakti / Kirtan, Sahaja Prana Vinyasa Flow, as well as various fitness and psychology trainings for a full round understanding of ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually and most classes contain elements of these styles, with some leaning more towards one or another and varying in level, strength and pace.
Alongside yoga and fitness classes, personal training, reiki, massage and relaxation therapies are also offered. Browse the website to learn more.
