Veronica Maynez

"Veronica "Vero" Maynez is equal parts local actor and passionate teaching artist. She began her journey with Yoga in 2017 after it became clear that mainstream, strain-prone fitness was not working in her body.

Vero is 200-Hour Vinyasa Flow Certified with CorePower Yoga, and holds an MFA in Acting from DePaul University where she took classes on Kalaripayattu, Laban Movement Analysis, Bartenieff Fundamentals, Clowning, Aerials, and Acro-Yoga, among other movement philosophies. Additionally, Vero’s yogic practice is deeply influenced by The Feldenkrais Method—a non-western movement practice she studied as physical therapy to aid Moderate Scoliosis. She holds a BA in Theatre & Performance Studies from UC Berkeley, as well.

Vero is a huge proponent of the free yoga model and the yoga for every body philosophy, and loves empowering students to have agency over their own practice."
