Vanessa, a college graduate from Vassar College, with a double major BA in Drama and Women’s Studies and a native of New Haven, Connecticut was drawn to bodywork and yoga because it was in her nature to heal others.
Since 2010, Vanessa has been a private License Massage Therapist (LMT) and uniquely specializes in neuromuscular therapy, musculoskeletal alignment, pre/post surgery, and post-injury rehabilitation. Trained with the renown Thomas DiMauro, she became an LMT in Connecticut in 2010, then transferred her license to the state of Florida in 2011. Vanessa has also worked successfully in other five stars hotel and resorts such as the Sagamore, The Delano, and SLS in Miami Beach.
Vanessa is prized for her attention to details and her innate ability to bring the body back to homeostasis. She is keenly intuitive and is able to tune into the needs of the body that she works on immediately. Her advance knowledge in the mechanics of the body’s muscular and skeletal systems and how to release pain through her advanced bodywork techniques makes her a highly sought after LMT in South Florida.
Equally gifted, Vanessa is also one of the most sought after private yoga teacher in Miami. At Sonic Yoga, NYC, she received her official yoga teacher training in 2010, though she had practiced yoga for 15 years in total. Vanessa teaches a blend of Vinyasa and Hatha yoga, and also enjoys a bit of AcroYoga as she has a Capoeira belt (awarded to her in 2006 from Mestre Efraim Silva- Ginga Brasileira). She has taught yoga in Miami Beach weekly at the Sagamore Hotel and with V Art of Wellness.
