Last year we had the wonderful Vanessa Hatton-Riveiro from Body 'N Soul Yoga join us for the festival. Vanessa ran workshops throughout the day under our yoga shelter, and people were finding their inner warriors and even trying out some headstands despite the windy weather.
Vanessa Hatton Riveiro attended the Susi Earnshaw Theatre School and Anna Scher Theatre from a young age where she completed Dance & Drama GCSE and has performed at Her Majesty's Theatre in London and was on Hope and Glory and Grange Hill TV series as a child.
She loves anything to do with Theatre, Travelling, Yoga and Weight Training.
Having backpacked most of the world little did she know that years later she would find a huge passion for Yoga and start teaching it across the globe.
Last year she founded Body ’N Soul Yoga which is a shared studio space at Epiphany Clothing in Bishops Stortford offering 6 Yoga and 1 meditation classes per week.
She completed her 200hrs Yoga teacher training in the UK and 500hrs in Sri Lanka and most recently also qualified as a Restorative Yoga teacher.
Her classes are strong but felt, with an emphasis on meditation and recovery as she believes these are some of the most underrated aspects within the fitness industry.
Above all sharing these ancient practices in her classes to educate us on the cycle and flow of life and remember that nothing ever stays the same. To remind you to smile from the inside out.
In the past year she has taught on Retreat in Morocco and will be holding a retreat in La Coruña Spain In August 2018.
