This class is taught by:

Veronica Cruz

Owner of Downtown Yoga Shala, Veronica took a leap of faith when she left a successful Silicon Valley high-tech career in 2008 to pursue a higher calling. Living in Kathmandu, Nepal in her youth opened her mind and heart to yoga philosophy and eastern spirituality. Years later she pursued yoga again, as a complement to her marathon and triathlon training, which intensified her love for the practice of yoga in all its dimensions - physical, emotional, mental, spiritual. Veronica is a certified yoga instructor, having completed Teacher Certifications in Ashtanga Vinyasa from Larry Shultz, Power Vinyasa from Baron Baptiste and Ashtanga Teacher Certifications from Tim Miller and David Swensen. As an Ashtanga practitioner, she has gratefully studied over the years with many certified teachers in the Ashtanga lineage while also continuing to study with Sharath Jois in Mysore, India when possible. She continually draws inspiration from the deep tradition of yoga, and derives profound personal growth in being a lifelong, humble student and dedicated practitioner on and off the mat. A local San Jose resident for many years, Veronica aspires to create a welcoming environment that will bring the many benefits of yoga to the corporate high-tech and multi-sport athletic communities of Silicon Valley. Veronica infuses her classes with warmth and sincerity, kindness and compassion. She gently encourages a mindful practice through deeper breath body awareness, while honoring the inner teacher that resides within each of us.
This is a traditional Led Primary Series class with Vinyasa count. This class is ideal for anyone with an existing Mysore practice, or familiar with the Primary Series sequence. Not recommended for beginners, or those without background in Ashtanga yoga.
 
If you are not familiar with the Primary Series, please attend Intro to Ashtanga or Led Modified Ashtanga Primary classes or Mysore Ashtanga classes prior to taking this class.
