Veronica first started practising yoga while studying for her degree in Engineering. On graduating (B.Eng Hons) she moved to Edinburgh and started a career in IT spanning 17 years. Here she attended her first Iyengar Yoga class (1990). The precision and attention to alignment appealed to her engineering mind, and she was hooked.

Her teaching career began in 1992 as a way of escaping the pressures of the corporate IT world. She combined a full-time position in IT while teaching evenings and weekends, until starting her family.

After the birth of her second daughter, Veronica founded “Little Greene Yoga” in Glasgow, Scotland (2005) to offer  yoga, specific to every developmental stage – “Yoga for all stages of Life.”

Little Greene Yoga became the first certified Kids Yoga Teacher Training School in Scotland under the registration of Yoga Alliance Professionals. The LGY programme now offers certified teacher training courses to teach yoga to 3-5yrs & 5-8yrs, 8-12yrs and a Teen – Mind & Body, Postnatal Yoga & Yoga for Classrooms.

Although trained in many health and fitness disciplines (see list below) Veronica’s study began to focus more on yoga – first with a Yoga Therapist Diploma with the Kevala Institute (1999); Kids Yoga TT (2002); Introductory Certificate in Iyengar Yoga (2006-2008) & Iyengar Junior Junior Intermediate I (2011). Her engineering mind took over and her thirst to investigate how everything worked led her to study anatomy, biomechanics and functional movement patterns and develop methods to engage and teach this to her numerous students.

Veronica wanted her training courses to be accredited and joined Yoga Alliance Professionals (YAP) for this purpose. She was awarded the Registered Senior Yoga Teacher (SYT) title and Registered Training School in 2012.

As well as the listed certified teacher training package Little Greene Yoga offers a full program for primary and secondary schools, including in-house training for school teachers (Nursery, Primary & Secondary) around the UK & Channel Islands, to use yoga as part of their school curriculum. This is often provided as IN-SERVICE/INSET DAYS. 

In 2019 Veronica opened The Yoga Practice (Glasgow southside). A purpose built studio to house her collection of yoga props and her very own engineered Yoga Wall.

Here, with her team of instructors, she offers a huge selection classes to suit all ages, abilities and tastes.

Her aim is to have a team of instructors offering safe and quality movement education techniques for ‘all stages of life”!
