The veraflow experience
What is VeraFlow?
VeraFlow is a dance-based stretch class with mindfulness.
Dance, stretch and find your true flow in this class like none other you have ever experienced.
This is you time: Time out in your day to move your body, get a clear head and to get focussed on the here and now.
You'll leave feeling like you've had a full body massage, your muscles feeling strengthened yet relaxed and loose.
There is no need to live with pain in your body. Once you experience the release you find in VeraFlow you won't look back.
What makes VeraFlow different from other flexibility classes?
VeraFlow is not yoga and it is not meant to substitute yoga.
VeraFlow is a fun way of introducing flexibility and mobility training into your routine because of the dance elements and the beautiful music we use in class.
This is the kind of music you'll be moving to in a VeraFlow class.

Vera means true in Italian and VeraFlow is all about finding your true flow in body and mind
What happens in a VeraFlow class?
The stretching is mixed into the dance routines and continues throughout the class. All the routines are choreographed to the music.
It's a low impact class (we don't jump) and the dance is more to have fun and warm up your muscles rather than get sweaty. The pliability we create in the muscles and increased mobility we gain at our joints allows us to make the most of the stretches.
The class starts with a warm-up, progresses through standing routines and then moves to the floor where we continue stretching to the beautiful music. It will end with a mindfulness practise.
Mindfulness meditation and visualisation exercises can help you to
calm your mind and to find peace. They can help you to get
a clearer understanding of how things really are - to get perspective.
Once you are practised at being mindful you'll find that how you react to
things that occur in your everyday life will begin to change. You'll be able to
apply the mindfulness tools you learn in VeraFlow classes to your every day life.
The mindfulness section at the end of a VeraFlow class is usually a very relaxing experience
because you're finally able to give yourself time to simply be with yourself.
