Meet Your Instructors
Veracis instructors and teachers are certified in their fields of expertise.
Traditionally, teachers are the ones with knowledge and expertise in a particular field. They impart that knowledge through a variety of means to their students, which may include instruction. When we talk about instruction, it’s not as complex as teaching. Instruction is giving direction. You instruct someone on what to do and how to do it. You will discover our team is a blend of both instructors and teachers.
Yoga Instructors have completed a minimum 200 hour certification program and are dedicated to integrating meditation and its benefits into yoga classes.
Meditation Teachers have completed intensive in house training with approximately 3-4 years personal experience combined with professional training. They have been able to master the discipline of meditation without assistance. Taking classes with a Certified Veracis® Meditation Teacher is one of the best ways to learn a meditation technique safely and thoroughly.

Cheryl, Meditation Teacher
My journey began when I realized I was missing balance. I worked in a demanding professional environment that required me to be at my peak. So my question was how do I sustain myself? For me, walking into Veracis was a gift. It never occurred to me at the time how truly great this gift would be. Life is always a blend of good things and difficult challenges. I can’t eliminate the challenges but I can choose how I respond to them. I found my balance and realized my peak is higher than I imagined – Veracis® Meditation has taught me this.
“As a Certified Veracis® Meditation Teacher I continue on my journey and have the pleasure of being a part of yours. ” Cheryl
