VICTORIA POMEROY - OWNER/TEACHER
I’m Victoria born in 1959 and married to Steve. I have a daughter, Ava and Steve has 3 children Shannon, Aidain and Keely. Together over the last 27 years, we have successfully become a ‘patchwork’ family.
At 16 years old, the beginning of my adult life found me travelling and living in Europe. My return to NZ four years later was marked by a massive car accident involving a truck. Miraculously I survived but my body was broken!
Over the next 24 years I continued to celebrate life mostly in 5th gear – not paying enough attention to my body and the importance of BALANCE. In 2001 it was decided that my leg needed lengthening and later my knee replacing. It was between these operations that I found myself back on the yoga mat.
In 2006 I trained to become a Bikram Teacher in LA – four years later I took Donna Farhi’s teacher training here in Christchurch New Zealand. Donna continues to be the source of much of my learning and teachings. I have also trained as an NLP Master practitioner, enabling me to be a more effective teacher and communicator.
From chaos has immerged harmony and BALANCE. Teaching is now my love and life. I am fortunate to share this with Greta and Jessica, and know we will share many years of teaching and bringing yoga to a wide range of people of all ages, shapes and sizes, growing a supportive yoga community in Christchurch.
