Veronique started yoga in 2000, at the age of 34, when she was diagnosed with Relapsing-Remitting MS. At the time, she was addicted to the gym. She loved aerobics, steps, spinning and spent 8 to 10 hours per week in the gym – but still smoked 25 cigarettes a day.
Even though she was convinced that Yoga would be boring, she decided to join an Iyengar and an Ashtanga class a week. She now knows that doing yoga and sticking to it was one of the best decision she ever made.
Over the years, she studied and practiced different types of yoga with different teachers: Iyengar, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Forrest Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Therapy Yoga… She has been teaching yoga since 2009.
