What Choose2be Clients Say
"Vero is a wonderfully positive, knowledgable, and supportive teacher/instructor. Her energy is infectious and she has an amazing ability to keep every class fresh, fun and upbeat. I have taken various classes with Vero over the years including butts & guts and circus yoga. Currently, I am enrolled in her Yoga Teacher Training program, which has been one of the most influential experiences of my life."
"Vero is so beautiful in so many ways. The YTT that I took with her this year (2019) exceeded any expectations that I had! Right away she had the 12 of us strangers feeling comfortable and ready for the journey ahead. The 12 of us became very close during the 8 weeks and I know this is due to the space Vero created. Thank you Choose2be!!!"
"Nothing but wonderful things to say about Véronique. I wrote my canfitpro theory exam with her and did my practical component with her two days later! She was super accommodating ( I came over to the island from Vancouver) and made me feel extremely comfortable during the whole process. I would HIGHLY recommend her. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Véronique for helping me make my dreams a reality and a new career now!!!"
"Vero is an amazing instructor and very knowledgeable. She’s inspirational and motivating, very helpful. Would definitely recommend working under her!"
"Veronique is bright with joy and laughter that often fills the time I’ve spent with her. I feel her deep care and support in the middle of any interaction I have with her. Vero brings her vast knowledge of the body and health into her work as a counselor with ease. I had this feeling of being challenged on my stuff while being cared about when with Veronique. Working with her is always dynamic!"

You will have me at your side every step of your journey to a healthier body and stronger mind – motivating you to make the changes in your life to be the healthiest version of yourself.

Start small if you need to. If you haven’t exercised for a long time, just begin by walking for 15 minutes a day and build up from there. You will be amazed at the domino effect this will have on the rest of your life. You will find it influencing how you feel about yourself. You will notice yourself making better choices in many areas of your life.
Start with the simple things. Be happy that you can walk, that you can see beautiful things, feel love and be loved. Look at yourself and focus on what you love about yourself. Be positive, cultivate gratitude, and let it grow on you.
There is no quick fix. You can’t buy health. You can’t buy a strong body. You need to create it through every choice you make, from eating to how you see yourself. A great place to start is exercise. You need to make exercise a lifestyle. Do whatever type of exercise you enjoy and find inspiring: walking, biking, weight lifting, yoga, dancing…
