Veronika Capova Yoga with Nika

About Me

Prague. 1980. That’s where my life began.

London. 2010. That’s where my yoga journey began.

As a sport lover and a qualified physiotherapist I have always been intrigued by the human body, but never really looked beyond the physical aspect. Even when I started practising what I then knew as ‘yoga’ my focus was predominantly on movement, strength, and flexibility. I soon realised, however, that through my own body I can gain access to so much more than just that which is visible on the outside. My attention started to focus more and more deeply on the inside and I discovered a whole new world there.

I still enjoy strong physical practice, but my reasons for practising have changed. These days I tend to relish yoga poses because they allow me, both on and off the mat, to be fully present, centred, and truly aware; be less reactive, more mindful and patient both with myself and others.

My training

I completed 200 hours of Intelligent Precision & Grace Yoga Teacher Training with Bridget Woods Kramer in 2017, and I continue to deepen my practice and expand my knowledge through continued study, regular home practice, and attendance at various workshops, immersions and other training around the UK and Europe.

My experience

Over the years I have been privileged to practise with a great many teachers from around the world, to whom I will always be grateful for sharing their knowledge.  I’m particularly thankful to Sam Mills, Manel Rodrigues, and Bridget Woods Kramer, all of whom hugely influenced my yoga journey and continue to do so. 

My approach to teaching yoga focuses on the student and their current need, state of mind and/or their physical preferences.

Classes

In my classes I place emphasis on correct alignment and stable foundation within each pose, smart sequencing, mindful movement, and breath integration. The aim is for students to leave the class feeling positive, energised yet relaxed, and having fun along the way is always a bonus.
