Yoga has been gaining immense popularity over the years and for a good reason. It’s a practice that not only improves physical health but also promotes mental and emotional well-being. Veronika Yogini, a yoga teacher based in London, has been helping people find inner peace and wellness through yoga, meditation, and mindfulness practices.
Veronika Yogini, whose real name is Veronika Gasiunaite Lucinske, was born on April 14, 1987, in Lithuania. She discovered yoga ten years ago, but it wasn’t until two years ago that she decided to pursue teaching yoga full-time. She completed her 500-hour teacher training course at Sthira Yoga School in India and has since been teaching yoga, leading seminars and retreats, and sharing her knowledge with the growing mindful community.
Veronika’s ultimate goal is to help people improve their well-being by starting with their mindsets. By sharing her own story and experiences, she hopes to inspire others to find their path towards inner peace and wellness.
Interviewer: Good morning, Veronika. Thank you for joining us today. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Veronika: Sure, I’m Veronika Gasiunaite Lucinske, but most people know me as Veronika Yogini. I was born on April 14, 1987, and I’m currently based in London, UK, although I’m originally from Lithuania. I’m a yoga, meditation, and mindfulness teacher, and I’ve completed a 500-hour teacher training course at the Sthira Yoga School in India.
Interviewer: That’s great. What made you decide to pursue a career in yoga?
Veronika: I’ve always loved helping others, and that’s what drew me to my studies in social pedagogy and psychology. However, my journey with mental health after a car accident ten years ago led me to discover the benefits of yoga and meditation. It helped me overcome anxiety, panic attacks, and depression, and I wanted to share those tools with others who might be going through similar struggles.
Interviewer: That’s very inspiring. Has there been any particularly inspiring incident that has been your motivation?
Veronika: I find everything about yoga fascinating. It’s not just a physical practice but also a way of life that can help us improve our mental and physical well-being. It’s a journey of self-discovery that teaches us to be more mindful, compassionate, and grateful.
Interviewer: Great adjectives all around. So what are your plans for the future?
Veronika: I plan to continue on my path as a yogi by giving yoga lessons, seminars, and retreats. I hope to touch the hearts of those who need to be reminded that they’re not alone and that we’re all going through something together. I aim to help people use these tools to be healthier mentally and physically and to become better versions of themselves.
Interviewer: That’s a great goal. But what’s the real Veronika like? Behind all these professional aspects.
Veronika: Of course. I’m a curious, creative person with a growth mindset. I love to read books, travel, and explore the world. I’ve always been interested in many different fields, from arts to sports. I played the piano for many years, danced, sang, and did art. I’m also 50/50 between being introverted and extroverted, which helps me balance my meditations and physical asana practices. Overall, my priority is my mind, and I believe that taking care of ourselves through all our layers is essential.
