Get to know your potential My Personal Yoga Teacher a bit better! Here’s Veta Rotenberg!
Veta started practicing yoga 7 years ago and immediately felt that it was not merely a physical practice but an inward journey that allowed her become aware of the intricate connection between body and mind. The yoga practice opened to her the gates to meditation, self-awareness and during pregnancy it promoted a deep bond between Veta and her daughter. With her great passion for anatomy and biomechanics, Veta explores the therapeutic aspects of yoga in her classes to help her students develop acute awareness of their physical and mental state.
Veta’s experiences include: Prenatal, Postnatal, Yin, Hatha, Anxiety, Injuries, Limited Mobility, and Trauma Sensitive Yoga.
Veta teaches in: North York, Midtown Toronto, Thornhill, and Richmond Hill.

Lisa’s go to grounding practice: Hiking. I love taking my kids out for long walks through the forests of High Park. Nature has a way of instantly making me feel better.
Current favourite band: Moses Sumney. I saw him perform on an NPR Tiny Desk concert video on Youtube, and I was smitten. I’ve been listening to his album on repeat ever since.
Current favourite place: My bed. As a sleep deprived mom of a baby, with 2 older kids, I love nothing more than curling up with a good book at the end of the day. Or middle of the day. Anytime, really
