Veronica Farje

Who did you study with?
I am always studying! I received my 200 hr certification studying with Dana Flynn and Jasmine Tarkeshi at Laughing Lotus and my Restorative Yoga certification from Judith Hanson Lasater. There are so many inspiring teachers in the world, especially my students.

How long have you been teaching?
Since 2005

What other jobs have you had?
I have always been in a helping profession. I was a professional policy advocate and a fundraiser for museums and social service organizations. I am currently a licensed massage therapist and fitness instructor.

Favorite place that you have traveled to?
I love traveling! Probably Peru???  Everywhere!

List 3 words your students would use to describe your classes:
Exciting. Challenging. Personal.

How does your own practice influence your daily life?
Yoga is a shield, a welcome mat, and a magic wand and I can change it at will to transform a situation. NOT EASY! My practice gives me space and that pause is potent.

Favorite asana?
I am partial to bird shapes.

Who is a teacher who inspires you?
I learn from everyone I meet. I really mean that. Even the woman who shoved me on the subway taught me something (to get out of the way).

A great yoga class makes you feel…
like I have reset myself…polished off the rough edges and turned on the light.
