Victoria is a yoga educator and massage therapist that has had nearly a decade of experience in the wellness industry. She practices massage in the greater Philadelphia area and teaches yoga in schools to children and online classes for adults and special populations. Victoria believes that the body is a vehicle for great transformation and healing through breathing, movement, meditation and massage. She is committed to applying what she has learned through trauma informed yoga for both children and adults and creates a safe and nurturing environment for her massage clients as well. Victoria is a perpetual student and believes every experience as an opportunity to learn and grow. She challenges her students to view their practice from this perspective so that they may listen to and appreciate the wisdom of their bodies without judgment.

What is Inner Alchemy?
The name “Inner Alchemy” was birthed out of one of my favorite books, “The Alchemist” which teaches us to follow our dreams, our hearts desire, and reminds us that when we follow the soul, the whole universe will conspire to make that dream come true. Since reading that book, I have tried to live my life, following and trusting.
Alchemists are also people who create something extraordinary out of something ordinary. We have this power inside of us to transmute our pain into healing, our sorrow into strength, our shame into motivation. We are the keepers of this magic and my purpose, as a practitioner in this space, is to simply remind of that wisdom within you. I am here to hold a safe container for you to explore your inner alchemy.
"Every session of body work with this amazing healer Vik, has been a blessing. Her techniques and willingness to understand the daily routine my body goes through is incredible. She knows where the soreness and pressure lies and gets it every time. Highly recommend!"
"I am blessed to have practiced under Victoria for the past few years. She is inspiring and encouraging and helped me grow in so many ways. She is also very good with kids. She is a gentle and powerful soul and I wish her all the happiness and love in the world."
