I am Victoria - the founder of Stretch NI. After doing youth work by day and teaching yoga by night I developed successful charity Stretch & Play for children and young people back in 2006. I then created Stretch NI in late-2009 to work specifically with adults (mostly because children are harder task-masters than grown-ups and I was exhausted!). My Stretch NI yoga, Pilates and specially-created Yoga-Lattes classes are designed to be fun and effective workouts. I also deliver meditation and stress management courses (which I LURRVVVE) as well as professional development training including the Stretch NI Pilates Matwork Instructor Training and Stretch & Play Children's Yoga Teacher training, both of which are accredited by Active IQ.

Experience

Yoga & PIlates Experience

I have been practising yoga for over 20 years (from the womb obv.) and teaching for over 10; while I have been teaching Pilates since 2005 and been teaching yoga teachers since 2006. I am a Registered Yoga Teacher at the 500 hour level and am insured to teach both yoga and Pilates at all levels (including pregnancy yoga). I was very excited to join my yoga mentor - Ms Sadie Nardini of Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga - in Mexico in January 2012!

I hold an MA Honours degree in English Literature and Sociology and an MSc in Marketing as well as numerous certificates and diplomas in youth and community work and training/facilitation.
