Victoria Tolton

Victoria first discovered yoga after competing with the National Synchronized Skating team as a way to recover from the physical and mental demands of training. She wasn’t sure at first if she was “calm enough” to be a yogi, but over time, the precision of the postures and their union with breath appealed to her meticulous and creative nature. Victoria’s approach to teaching is very anatomy-based, thanks to her extensive background in both sport and education. She has had the great privilege to teach yoga overseas, particularly in Greece, Turkey, and Scotland, while completing two graduate degrees in the area of Ancient Greek sculpture. She loves to learn and is always exploring new ways to develop her own practice so that she might be able to serve others better. For Victoria, the joy of yoga is inherent in its ability to mean something different to everyone who steps onto the mat. She will challenge you to leap outside of your comfort zone and explore the postures as a true expression of your own amazing and unique self!
