Hello! I’m Viv. I have been practicing yoga since 2005, and teaching since 2012. I
run VNC yoga from my home town of Marlow, Buckinghamshire and am certified to teach Mandala Vinyasa, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Rocket, Vinyasa flow, Yin yoga, Pre and post natal yoga, Restorative yoga and Hypno Birthing.
I teach both group and one-to- one classes, as well as workshops and corporate
classes in Marlow and the surrounding counties. I also organise and run yoga
retreats in the UK, Spain and the Greek island of Santorini.
Yoga and meditation have always been my passion; it is where I find my calm, my truth and my spirit.
"One thing is guaranteed - whatever my mood at the start one of Vivien's classes, it will be much improved when it finishes. As a beginner yogi I found Viv helpful, supportive and inspirational, and as I develop my practice she is always there to help me push myself but never in a forceful manner - I do it all at my own pace. I can even do a headstand now!
My emotional health is so much better now that I am a yoga regular but it is the improved strength and tone I see in my body, as well as the expected better flexibility, that has pleased and surprised me.
A word of warning, though - be prepared to become addicted to yoga with Viv! I really notice a negative difference when I miss classes."

"Viv is a truly inspirational teacher. She is patient, fun and has encouraged me to overcome challenges in my yoga practice."

"The Tarifa Yoga Retreat, was a first for me, I have to say it was one of the best things I've ever experienced, the villa, food, company, location was everything I had imagined and more. The yoga itself was varied and catered for all levels, I came back totally invigorated, calm, and ready to explore more of my practice. Vivien is a truly inspirational teacher, the best. Great fun - particularly practicing our yoga on the beach (watching the sunrise) and in the sea! I can't wait for the next one."
Sue Leaver, Marlow
"The yoga retreat in Tarifa was an absolutely fantastic week. The balance of yoga and time to do other activities was perfect allowing me to develop my yoga practice, learn new techniques, relax by the pool, walk to the beach and do some water sports. Vivien's approach to the retreat was great. Her enthusiasm to help us develop backed up by her tremendous knowledge and passion was infectious but not at all overpowering. I felt very relaxed as soon as we arrived and by the end of the week I was completely chilled out. Of course the amazing location with breath taking views of the Moroccan mountains and the ocean helped too. The villa and gardens are spectacular and there is plenty of space to have time on your own. The other, thing I must mention is the food that was prepared for us - what a treat! We had the opportunity to try many different cuisines and it is impossible for me to describe how tasty it all was. We ate every meal outside which is just such a luxury and made the food taste even better.I recommend this retreat to everyone. Vivien will make you feel comfortable and will help you at whatever level of yoga you are. I am very much a beginner but improved my practice and focus greatly. You will get so much out of it and come home feeling revitalised and ready for anything."
