My name is Kerri Verna and I am a Mother of 2 boys, wife to an amazing husband named Nick, and I live in south Florida. I have been teaching Yoga and Pilates for over 17 years and I love helping others find freedom through movement.
At the age of 19, I was in a terrible car accident that left me with debilitating back and neck pain. At 23, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and 2 herniated discs in my low back. I was in so much pain that I couldn’t bend over to touch my toes. I was told by doctors that I needed surgery and was prescribed medications to ease the pain. Thankfully, I didn’t have the surgery but I grew dependent on drugs and alcohol to numb the pain.
At the age of 27, I had gained 40 pounds, suffered from anxiety and depression and I felt hopeless. By the grace of God, I found yoga and Pilates and began to change my life.
Today, I am living the life I never thought possible. I can do things with my body that doctors told me I’d never be able to do. I’m here to tell you change can happen, and I want to share this message with others.
