COVID-19 Latest Update 3/15/2020
Thank you for your patience as I gather pertinent information from professionals at all levels of the COVID-19 response.
VWIPT office & studio will be closed Monday, March 16 until Sunday, April 5, 2020. There will be no in-person physical therapy, Pilates training or Wellness visits, and no community Medical Therapeutic Yoga and Pilates group classes.
I will be offering online classes, video conferencing for private PT, yoga and Pilates and training using the Zoom Conferencing Platform.
In order to engage, you will need a good internet connection, a smart phone or laptop that will download this free Zoom app, a yoga mat and maybe a few props and a designated space to move your body.
I will help you set up your Zoom account if this is new for you. Once you schedule appointments or classes, you will have access to my private Zoom conference code.
*Private appointments will be offered in several ways:
1. Keep your currently scheduled appointments and connect via Zoom
2. Email or text me to set up a new appointment to connect via Zoom
3. Schedule on my website and choose “Wellness Zoom Session w/Veronica 55 min” Here: https://vwintegrativept.as.me/?appointmentType=12940509

I will be filming from my studio and guiding you through each warm-up, functional movement self-assessment, diaphragmatic and power breathwork, flowing Pilates or yoga moves, and a closing guided meditation.
We will be together in community on our computers or phones and interact the same as we do in class!
In the meantime, as my family and I are preparing for social distancing, spending more time together, completing home projects, having our kids out of school and “home-schooling” (my Kindergartener Naomi is out of school until April 5)…
I will be praying for each and every one of you for God’s protection, good health and continuous healing. Please email me privately for any specific prayer requests you have and I will be honored to lift these requests up during my prayer and meditation time.
I invite you in the coming weeks, to consider meditating daily on these beautiful Bible verses that will speak comfort, hope and encouragement to your heart during uncertain times:
