Fitness Instructor, Reiki Master & Ayurveda Practitioner
She is incredibly passionate about helping others achieve peace, balance and robust physical / emotional / spiritual health through various energetic and holistic modalities. Having been raised in a health-forward home, she was blessed with a foundation of understanding the benefits of natural therapies and their effect on a healthy and happy life.
Victoria joined the Island Retreat Spa Family as a fitness and meditation instructor and Reiki Master Practitioner in 2022. Originally from New Jersey, Victoria's love for physical wellness was forged during her early years as a dancer and choreographer. Ever curious about how movement improves expression, health and vigor, she explored all forms of exercise and appreciated how these modalities offered unique pathways to physical health. She knew she wanted to take her interest to a professional level in 2014 and completed a Zumba Dance Certification. Group Exercise, Barre, and Mat Pilates soon followed and Victoria began teaching in multiple NJ studios and loved every minute of the amazing fitness communities of which she was a member. In 2020, Victoria completed her 200 hour Vinyasa Yoga Certification which came just in time to begin teaching all of her modalities virtually during the pandemic. (She is so excited to finally be heading back to in-person classes this spring on BHI!) Victoria firmly believes that physical fitness can be for everyone and focuses on Form and Fun in all of her classes. You're definitely in for a workout, but Victoria hopes you will always leave with a smile on your face! When not leading a workout, Victoria devotes her time to her private practice as a Reiki Master Practitioner for People and Pets...BUT she has been taking a bit of time on the side to get ready for her first marathon out in Big Sur! Victoria is a Certified Reiki Master/Teacher and Practitioner, Holistic Practitioner of Ayurveda and Emotion Code Practitioner who is excited to be offering energy healing at Island Spa. She is incredibly passionate about helping others achieve peace, balance and robust physical / emotional / spiritual health through various energetic and holistic modalities. Having been raised in a health-forward home, she was blessed with a foundation of understanding the benefits of natural therapies and their effect on a healthy and happy life. Acquiring alternative health knowledge (as both a patient and a student) became her focus while living and working in New York City, and Victoria is looking forward to sharing her experience, skill, and insight here on beautiful Bald Head Island. Victoria became a Certified Reiki Practitioner in 2014 and began work in private practice. During this time she also pursued and completed a 150-hour certification in Ayurveda, an ancient healing science. She graduated in 2016 with credentials as a Holistic Practitioner of Ayurveda as her passion to serve other through the healing arts intensified. Returning to study with her Reiki mentor, she then entered into a 2-year intensive study program to achieve a Reiki Master / Teacher Certification in 2018. With Reiki leading the way, Victoria’s work unlocked significant restorative benefits and lifelong well-being in her clients, and this spurred her on to continued exploration in holistic health. Most recently, and to better guide clients and students, she studied and completed a 200-HR certification in 2020 and obtained certification as an Emotion Code Practitioner in 2021.
