Why Verapose?

“We believe in teaching yoga from a place of love. We see potential in everyone who comes into the Yoga House, and believe that everyone needs to learn, move and absorb the prana (life force) that yoga provides at their own pace. Our students all have unique strengths and gifts and deserve to feel good, peaceful and nurtured. We believe in the power of creating a community that is safe for our family of students to show up, just as they are and shine.”

Courtney Fitzpatrick, Founder

Our mission is to help you remember your true stance, and to feel just plain good. Our name; “Vera” is the Latin feminine expression for truth and “pose”, is a synonym for stance. Essentially, we help our yogis remember who they are.

We’re thrilled you’ve chosen to either begin or continue your yogic journey of well-being with us. To help you get oriented, we have included our Class, Event, and Workshop information, FAQ’s and policies as well as information on individual/group private lessons and Reiki sessions. We also offer Yoga Teacher Training twice a year as well as Reiki I and Reiki II Certifications.

What makes us unique?

Our mindset: we don’t believe yoga is a one size fits all experience. We emphasize an approach where you find what you need moment by moment; we believe everyone is beautifully unique and we concern ourselves with meeting you where you are. We welcome people of all ages, body types, fitness levels and we encourage/teach modifications throughout our classes. We don’t have levels to our classes although we will happily talk with you to figure out where you will feel most comfortable and which classes will best suit you. We specialize in helping yoga newbies get oriented and comfortable, and well-seasoned yogis deepen their practice.

What is yoga?

Yoga means so many things to so many people. Images of people in pretzel-like postures may come to mind, but to us yoga is so much more than just the postures. Yoga means union. It is the union of breath, of body awareness and of the consciousness of the mind. The physical form of yoga, or asana, was designed thousands of years ago as a way of settling the mind and calming the body in preparation for meditation. These days modern medicine and research is touting the profound and multitude of benefits of this ancient practice. To us, this practice is a beautiful way of unfolding tension held in the body and the mind and is a perfect elixir to a stressful lifestyle.
