"Top 3 best private yoga teachers"

ES Magazine 2008

"Verity's philosophy that one's yoga practice should be different every day was a refreshing approach for me, and I was never bored at a session."

Jaime Perlman, VOGUE Art Director

"Two sessions with Verity I have just run five km, the furthest I have ever run in my life! It’s not exaggerating to say just the first session alone was transformational."

For years I have had intermittent knee pain which prevented me from running. I couldn’t run more than a kilometre without my knees playing up. After two sessions with Verity I have just run five- the furthest I have ever run in my life! It’s not exaggerating to say just the first session alone was transformational. I’m looking forward to continuing to reap benefits from Verity’s deep understanding of anatomy and how everything - breath, body, posture - is interwoven.

I thought I was experienced when it came to movement, but Verity showed me that there is always more. Not more to see, but more to feel. You basically can't engage a muscle you dont feel and I feel sorry for all those muscles in my body that I neglected my entire adult life. Verity's work is the best example that small adjustments in muscle engangement and alignment bring big change. My unspecific back pain basically vanished, my neck became soft and little by little gait is becoming more natural. Every movement that we do reflects our ability to walk and breathe properly and if we don't, well, then a lot of other thing wont work well either. We need more coaches like Verity!

I have had a lower back/hip problem that has escalated over the past 2 years to the point I couldn’t play competitive sports anymore. One session with Verity has already alleviated almost all of the discomfort. I played football last night and for the first time in years felt no pain after. Her acute knowledge about the body and how it works, coupled with her genuine desire to help and get you back to fitness is second to none. I couldn’t recommend her more.

Having been diagnosed with Tourette’s Syndrome over 15 years ago, I regularly suffer from ticks that affect my regular breathing pattern. I was recently suffering from a tick that was disrupting my breathing as well hyperventilating as a result of my anxiety. I reached out to Verity for her advice and she gave me effective tools to bring my breathing back under control. She has taught me useful techniques to manage breathing moving forward and retrain my breathing patterns with a view to bringing my ticks under control. Although it is still relatively early days, I have already noticed a significant reduction in ticks since employing Verity’s techniques. I couldn’t recommend Verity enough!

My two largest toes on my right foot had started to swell badly when I ran and even just walking was becoming painful. Verity identified the problem in my gait really quickly and was able to show me where I was going wrong on a video. She then gave me three simple (but fairly strenuous) exercises. I did the exercises every day and was able to contact her for additional tips, she even found additional content on the internet which helped me understand what was going wrong. After a week of doing the exercises and really focusing on my gait the swelling and pain had subsided and I'm now able to run again without any issues!

Ever since I had a bike accident as a child I suffered with knee pain. There would be periods when the pain would be mild, but whenever I would do any kind of exercise the pain would come back. I heard about Verity through my sister and she has been the first person who really understood what I am going through and helped me with my knee pain. We had zoom appointments and it worked really well. She could exactly see where the problem was and thanks to her guidance and the exercises she would give me I am finally pain free! She is also a lovely person, very pleasant and always ready to answer my questions. So glad to have found her!

My story

My story

After experiencing a fair amount of physical pain in my legs, knees, back and shoulders from the age of 8, time concluded that the cause was bad posture and very tight muscles. At first yoga helped enormously, but without proper anatomical understanding I fell into bad yoga habits causing different pain, which led me to study anatomy of movement… Read more >
